unlikely: If two news operations are reporting that 2+2=4 and one is reporting 2+2=16andIFyouDON'TagreeYOU'REaCOMMIE, there is only one that is showing bias.The biggest problem is that now a number of them are going "On the left, 2 and 2 is 4. On the Right, 2 and 2 is 16. The truth must be somewhere in the middle. 2 and 2 is obviously 10."
brianbankerus: AlwaysRightBoy: They're all biased, it just depends how you like your coffee frothed with your particular cream.But not even remotely to equal degrees. MSNBC has Morning Joe... what's the Fox equivalent? Fox is 24/7 right-wing propaganda. MSNBC is only about 12-14/hrs/day left-wing propaganda.Not the same.

I've met Bill, I've met Hillary and AlMy sister also held a fundraiser for the idiot Kerry in her democratic mansion./funny how politics work

Drexl's Eye: When was the last time a television remote had a dial?
GBB: DeltaPunch: "Turn the dial to the left to watch MSNBC and it's more likely you lean left. Turn it to the right to tune in Fox, and it's more likely you lean right will suffer some mild brain damage."Dial?? What "dial"??
BuckTurgidson: Turn the dial to the left to watch MSNBC and it's more likely you lean left. Turn it to the right to tune in Fox, and it's more likely you lean right.Somebody needs to upgrade to a television manufactured after 1970s, he's probably getting tired of always adjusting the rabbit ears.
brantgoose: In Maine they have a scale model of the solar system.The Sun is on the campus of the University of Maine in Presque Isle (French for "almost an island", i.e., a peninsula). The partisanship of Fox News is somewhere beyond Pluto (Houlton, ME). I'm guessing it is offshore near Mount Desert Island, and its famous old-timey resort town, Bar Harbor.http://astroguyz.com/2008/07/24/the-maine-solar-system-model-an-updat e /For Canadians, the distance is about the same as Woodstock, NB, to Perth Andover, NB, with McCain Land in between (Fredericton in the other direction, might be easier to visualize). Perth Andover is where the winner of the Touch Bellini Contest on Kids in the Hall got to touch Belleni (wearing a hotel room towel). IIRC, the winner was a Hickey. Hickey is a common name in the area. Maybe he was a Hicks.In the history of the world, about the only events that have ever happened in or near Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, was the Touch Bellini Contest and the Aroostook War. Neither of them were our finest hour as a species. But more people knew about the Touch Bellini Contest.I'm sorry we lost Aroostook County to the State of ME. All those potato fields could have been ours, and also a much shorter route to Upper Canada, with fewer icy hills.The weather in Presque Isle, Maine is the same as the weather in McCain Land, except one hour earlier. The McCains have their private executive airport in New Brunswick and their control tower in the USA. The multi-billion dollar food giant and this international airport are Florenceville, NB's claim to fame (not bad for a village of 700 or so).But I digress.Suffice to say that Fox News is further out there than the Way Outs on the Inter-Galactic Iditerod Dog Sled Race. CNN and the other corporate news sources don't seem all that much less crazier than batshiat sorbet.
Cletus C.: I'll usually watch a little of both, just for the absurdity of it all. Which is fun if you don't take them too seriously.What's interesting is how The Newsroom on HBO has a premise where that show is going to cut through the partisan bullshiat of those two networks, presumably, and the newscast ends up sounding just like MSNBC.
