    I think their distortion makes anyone who watches these networks on a daily basis terribly misinformed about contemporary issues in America.

    Am I wrong?

    BONUS: Who is more biased: Fox News or MSNBC?

    FOX is not news. It's propaganda owned by an Aussie criminal and Saudi princes.

    FOX egged on the war with Iraq.

    MSNBC has done no such thing.

    Not really. I think both networks HAVE learned to market news in such a way to make it more palatable to their target audience.

    But if you take a story, a watcher of networks would know the basics of a story.

    The thing I noticed is that as worked up as we get here, most people just aren't paying that much attention. I asked a bunch of my co-workers if they even knew who Herman Cain was, and most of them didn't. They just didn't care.

    MSNBC egged on craven surrender at every oppurtunity. After it started.

    Fact is, all the news media breathelessly ran "Saddam is Evil" stories in the runup to the war. They all happily told us what a monster Uday was and how the poor Iraqi people were suffering.

    The only thing Fox did differently was that when the rest of the media turned against the war, they were for finishing what we started.

    ummmmmm... i don't think MSNBC pretends to be a "news" station. It's mostly political discussion. Fauxnews is the propaganda arm of the republican party dressed up as a "news" channel...

    "surrender"??? to whom?

    you have a problem with them telling the truth about how we shouldn't have been in Iraq?

    This is like asking which team's cheerleaders are cuter.
