Your description of Dobbs as a bully sounds like someone describing Bill O'Reilly. Dobbs is anything but a bully. The only time I've seen him with 'a short fuse' is with people who constantly repeat the political talking points on his show and won't be honest about an issue, but he is always respectful and very curteous to his guests, more so than almost any other broadcaster I've ever watched. The only people that seem to have a beef with Dobbs are the ones that are mad about him exposing the truth about our immigration policy and our outsourcing of America jobs overseas. But it makes me laugh because when someone comes on his show that disagrees with his views on immigration, they never seem to have any intelligent rebuttal--I find it hilarious.

The reason he is monotone is because he was taught in the old traditional style of journalism, like Murrow, etc, which is what makes it really great when he gets worked up about something. He's fun to watch.

I totally agree, KDizz, Bill O'reilly is a bully. I thought he was a fair guy at first, but then I realized he frequently intimidated guests and dominated everything he didn't like in a rude fashion. Lou Dobbs is quite rough though, I can't stray from that, but he is very intelligient and asks logical questions and seeks answers. I can see why he has a high approval rating.

I like Fox News mainly the people seem to be more alive. I like Fox&Friends I miss ED. But, she is on later with her own show. I also like John Scott,Shepherd Smith,Neil Cavuto & John Gibson & good ole Hannity & Colmes.
I tend to watch Fox more often too. I like Shepard Smith as well, though he pissed me off with his slanted remarks reporting from the Israeli/Lebanese war. I still like him.
I also really like Bill O'Reilly and enjoy his commentaries and interviews.
And... Harris Faulkner...not only gorgeous, but she delivers the news with fantastic diction and clarity then gives a bright big smile at the end...every time! I'm fascinated by her
I watch Greta Van Sustern as well.
I don't care for the morning crew on CNN and Tony Harris irritates me, so I don't watch much CNN, though I like Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Lou Dobbs, and Larry King. If I watch CNN, I watch when these folks are on air. And I don't watch any Glenn Beck as just the sight of him makes me uneasy.
I also don't watch much MSNBC because I cannot stand Keith Obermeyer and his big bag of smugness.

I get most of my news on-line and I comb the globe, but I find the BBC to be lacking in coverage and quite slanted to the left. I read the London Times online and sometimes the Guardian. I like Worldnetdaily and 1st Headlines a lot. I also cruise through NewsMax.
AssignmenteditorDOTcom offers links to many news sources around the world, as does Newsmax

I'm guessing Greta Van Sustern is not on the same richter scale!

I'd have to agree with you on Keith Olbermann (however you spell it!), he is really smug that it gets on your nerves quickly. I get a lot of my news online as well. Yes, you're very right about the BBC as well, it is definitely left-leaning. One of the few that I will actually agree is left-leaning is the BBC. You have to remember this is a product of a socialist country, so what can you expect?

Keith Olbermann should have stuck with SportsCenter, he has developed a sharp edge attitude.

Well if you wanna hear about Natalie Holloway or something like that every night, then Greta is your gal. She spends WAY too much time talking about these things (Duke rape case, Natalie Holloway, Elizabeth Smart), that is why I can't sit through one show. But, if you like hearing about those things incessantly, I can see why people watch.

Yes, especially because you don't have to put up with him for a full hour, but you just get quick snips and sports highlights--which make him more bearable.
