the anti fox news thread i made got closed, hopefully this one is more along the lines of what the mod said was okay. Title kinda sucks but oh well.

The news is very biased, doesn't matter what station you watch, they all show some sort of bias. Some do more than others, but just about everyone does.

Discuss this.

Can't really think of a better way to start this off, but if you were posting in my old thread you know what to do.

All news is history, break up that word and look at its origins

His Story

Ofcourse it's biased, history/news is written by the victor, the baddie will always be the other guy.

A bias is unevitable since to be interested enough in something like to research about it, you probably need to have some sort of connection with a part of it, and because of that you are already a bit biased.

i wouldn't say its 100% unbiased, he does a good job at hiding his bias by acting like hes a dumb republican when he really is a democrat.

sorry for answering that if you were just being sarcastic

Lol, I was being sarcastic, but if you pay attention it is pro-democrat because he makes republicans look stupid. Yet sometimes, I agree with his republican antics...

Not really news channel..
But Border Security is one of the most biased TV shows I ever seen..
They arrest asians for the entire hour and one white guy at the end will be busted for drugs..
Pretty unfair towards asians..

CNN is just as bad as Fox, but pro liberal instead of right wing

I'm glad somebody thinks this too

Apparently Border Security gets shown to some Government department or something before it's aired, so the department can pick the bits it wants shown.

Fox news is biased?

Try CNN.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

CNN is much more middle of the line than Fox (or Faux News). MSNBC is easily the most liberal mainstream news channel.

On an mildly unrelated note: In my college politics classes, we were made to read (and cite) congressional records, supreme court decisions, speeches, and censuses whenever we discussed current events and statistics. If we cited a cable news source, we lost points.
