    I find Fox an annoying informercial for the books of their talking heads and just slightly to the right of the MSM, anyone feel likewise?

    Re Fox most people know the difference between their opinion shows and their news operations. Their local affiliate's news operations here are better than the major networks and their local affiliates' news reporting, considerably better. I don't buy books by talking heads often, and don't watch satellite/cable political opinion shows at all, so I wouldn't know about the book ads, but none of them are public television and they all run ads for something, so it might as well be their own products. PBS is worse; they run more ad time than anybody else for their products. many times all day long and well into the nights, weekdays and weekends.

    Never seen or even heard of OAN.

    Thanks, I was wondering why I never see it cited on the board.

    Just Binged them and yes, they're fairly small. They split between commentary and news, too. I'll mess around over there, and if they have a lot of written content I'll bookmark them. Thanks for the plug for them; I always like to find a variety of sources away from the usual hack operations.

    Already found an interesting story, re Hungary and Soros. lol didn't see it on any of the news here.

    They claim to put out four times the headline news as anyone else.

    There were certainly a lot of them. Many of them I saw were pretty short, though, but I only browsed them for a couple of minutes, so don't anybody go by me; didn't check out any of the analysis pieces yet.

    "Tipping Point" is OK but "The Daily Ledger" drives me up a wall.
