If FOX news is not to be trusted..how much more so ABC, NBC & CNN?

Ok...logic. If Fox news is not to be trusted because of a conservative slant to it's reporting, why is it not suspect to have a liberal slant to your reporting? Seems to me the news should be the facts...and ANY slanting of the facts is suspect? Right?

Hi, Debra! What works for me is to check out a number of different outlets for news, keeping in mind the biases of each. We all know which are liberal,, which are conservative, and how difficult it is for any to keep the news reporting entirely unbiased. Reporters, newswriters, producers, etc., are, after all, only human!

That is pretty much my way too. My dad told me, keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. As I grew up I figured out what he meant....know what your enemies are up to. I DON'T let what I hear and see around me be the ONLY thing I base my thoughts and opinions on.

From what I understand, Fox News does give both sides of an issue, whereas the others do not. Of course the Libturds hate anything that gives anything other then the Statist point of view. The truth is that EVERYONE is biased towards their beliefs. Fox is at least honest about it whereas the others who are Liberal lie about their agenda. Why do you think the term Lying Liberals exist?... It is because that's what they do.. they lie.

I'd much rather have BOTH sides. I feel I am intelligent enough to discern what is truth and what is a lie. Let's put that another way...maybe intelligence is not so necessary. If you make yourself aware of what is truth...the deeper issues of what is right and wrong...values, morals, ethics...when a lie is in front of you it cannot be mistaken for the truth. WE NEED to get back to what made this country GREAT...the values of our founding fathers. Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters. Ben Franklin Bank employees are trained to detect counterfit money by handling ONLY real money. And then when a counterfit bill is in their hand...it's immediately recognized as a counterfit.

Being Canadian, and don't boo me yet, I tend to look at what the rest of the world is talking about, have a look at UK news and Asian news, even our Canadian news...it will broaden perspectives. The problem with protectionism is that your box sometimes can get small and sooner or later one will realize that there is a huge universe out there!

If you want to know more about the kind of news you are getting, just dig a little deeper and find out who owns the tv stations that run the news. Imagine what influence them owners might have on the news being delivered to your TV.

Yes, I've done some research on that. Seems a certain Arab in Saudi Arabia has a large stake in CNN. I have the link posted in another discussion here on myLot. I haven't had time to research more...wanna help?

Let's just put it this way, the elites that sell you insurance, that hold your money, that control the oil distribution, that tell you what logos you should where. We can start with them without using family names.

I love the Spin Zone...though I hate O'reilly sometimes he tends to be rude... but i find him funny though...I got addcited to the channel when they were doing the coverage on Casey Anthony... and when ampaign started I was just getting updates on it. when I switch to other channels, all I see is obama,obam, obama, that is why I got the impression other networks didnt play it fair.

in my opinion and i may come off as some conspiracy nut, but i do not trust all that i hear or read in the news because there is always slant.you will not always get the whole truth, depending on who is pulling the strings. remember the misinformation during the vietnam war. i would rather get onto the internet, because that is something that cannot be governed or censored or completely monitored, so there is a free flow of information, even that which the government or the powers that be do not want us to know. thank the maker for the information superhighway!

I agree, but I have experienced the 'oh, you read that on the internet?As if that makes it suspect. People want to be spoonfed...they don't want to have to think about what they're reading..and most times, they already have their minds made up. I can't count all the times I've read something, checked another source...and changed my mind about things. But you know what is said....us conservatives are closed minded.
