    I don't trust any one source implicitly. Instead, I try to understand the biases from various sources and take that into consideration when reading their news and political commentary. For instance:

    Conservative leaning sources - WSJ, National Review, Fox
    Libertarian leaning sources - Daily Caller, FBN (Stossel, Judge Napolitano), Reason magazine
    Progressive leaning sources - MSNBC, NYT, Huffington Post

    Heck, even within each of these sources, you'll find individuals with differing points of view, though MSLSD is pretty much composed entirely government suck ups...it's really painful to watch but I occasionally try.

    Incidentally CNN came in second.

    I record a bit from each of them. MSNBC has become increasingly hard to watch because I tire of listening to the hate

    msnbc was the ONLY station (olberman) telling the truth about the war.

    The rest towed the Bush admin line on the lies.

    I can't really select one over another. The important thing is to be able to discern fact from opinion.

    C-Span is the only place to get unbiased coverage.

    MSNBC has standards for accuracy that FOX does not have. They are both biased....but FOX is intentionally deceitful.

    How is a frog on a cross odder than a man on a cross? Your symbol of worship depicts an execution. I find that odd.

    The press did fail miserably in its Constitutional mandate with regard to the illegal invasion of Iraq, it shares equal blame with GWB and Congress.

    Fox is the least reliable of those noted in the poll, needless to say; its identifying Mark Foley and Mark Sanford as democrats, for example, was infamous and reprehensible.
