    ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and Fox are all right leaning. Sorry about your lack of perspective.

    Hey haarg. If they lean right, what do you think leans left? I mean more left than those stations? Newsweek,Time, Media Matters and Wikileaks?

    I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, how many would all of AM radio count as? Everyone pretty much has access to that. No question to that if they own a car.

    Good point BBA. Yes, AM radio is owned by the conservatives. I admit that but consider how many radio listeners actually listen to AM radio...

    If the young kids did listen to AM radio and paid attention they would not be so overly liberal. How does the saying go...some thing like if you're 20 years old and not a democrat you don't have a heart and if you are 40 years old and aren't a republican you don't have a brain.

    What, so he can scream racial slurs and various other offensive phrases like every other prepubescent boy on Live?

    ABC is one of the more "center" news outlets out there, along with Reuters. It's funny for anyone to say any of the news is "fair and balanced" or that Fox is overly sensationalist compared to other news outlets. Every news outlet wants you to watch them so they ALL sensationalize every piece of turd that comes turtling out of their broncaneous.

    Also, referencing Christan news outlets as real news outlets? TBN? Seriously? :lol:

    who said they were "real" news outlets?
    Herm asked someone to list "conservative" media networks. so I did.

    each of those networks broadcasts their own news segments (regardless of how journalistic they are) which are heavily slanted toward the conservative viewpoint on every issue they choose to over.

    And that's how it should be. Stations that promote populism or pander to radicals should be rare.

    First of all, the majority of the population (e.g. 70%) are neither liberal or conservative, they are moderates, independents or don't care about politics at all (just want to get by, love their kids, struggle with a shitty job or no job at all).

    You tend to call "liberal" to news stations that cater to the fringe left, but also to the majority (center, independents, etc...) Of course, they are on YOUR left, damn it, 80+% of the population is! Of course they often advocate views that you don't like (if they should go beyond news and be opinion makers is another discussion altogether). Isn't YOU that are wrongly positioned, that have a fringe and radical viewpoint?

    Sticking your fingers in your ears and going "lalalalalala" while people take you to class and back does not constitute a win.

    Now scurry along young grasshopper before the IRC pals take your mom out for dinner. :eek:


    Meanwhile, this thread is fucking retarded.
    Even as a BLEEDN HUART LEEBRUL, I can smell the biased bullshit of this article a (dozen) mile(s) away.

    Oh, and as for actual politics.. For us Europeans, the US political system consists of:
    1: Far Conservatives.
    2: Slightly farther Conservatives.

    Get rid of your retarded 2-party system. It's good for nobody save the billionaires.
