Of course, what precious little there is of it.


CNN, CBS - well it depends on the story and how well corroborated the story is by the truly liberal media.


Fox News - never, but then they aren't liberal. Put it this way. If something appears on Fox news I presume it to be false and/or mis-leading until proven otherwise.


All this based on prior experience and patterns of trust or distrust built up over time.

Not so much that I forgot them as that I don't watch them.


PBS sometimes - but the programs I watch there fall under the "liberal media I trust" category.

I guess you might say I believe the facts that the news (on either side) presents, in the sense of: Shit Happened and This is What -- but not necessarily in the conclusions that they draw.

That method also works. I just like to have my fact corroborated. Real tired of "pack journalism"

Yep - and it just came out that the White House works all the rhetoric through Media Matters who then pushes it to the lame stream propganda machine.  This explains why most of the channels out there have pretty much the same stories and spin while they ignore the important stuff.

How long will it take for Americans (and folks in most other developed countries) to finally understand that the major media is not liberal or conservative - it is corporate.  Commercialism has totally ovetaken unbiased discussion of public affairs (news).  And they feed us their propaganda constantly!  This is how they control elections.  Corporations continue their constant agenda to control government, and they are succeeding, so far.

Beyond making shit up like Dan Rather did I love the liberal media. 


They take themselves so seriously . 


Let the bridges I burn light the way. You are special, just like everybody else. Calling an illegal alien an ‘undocumented immigrant’ is like calling a drug dealer an ‘unlicensed pharmacist’

Any news has to be taken with a grain of salt. They only tell you what the public aught to hear. So in other words you’re only getting a bit of the truth and loads of embellishments.  There's always more that meets the eye.

Also isn’t the Fox news Net owned by some Saudi prince?
