Unbiased Cable News Channel - 05/22/13 02:05 PM

.

Biased news channels are not really "news" but "opinions." Personally, I have no problem with biased news channels. I like hearing news that goes along with my beliefs. I like those that don't go along with me just because it is good to hear how the other half lives.

But, my question:

Is there an unbiased cable news channel? I don't think so. If there are some, I would like to know about them and visit now and then. Thanks.

I like MSNBC better than CNN when it comes to news. The newscasters all appear to be unbiased. Al Sharpton is the exception. whistle
However, when it comes to disasters, I like CNN only because their reporters are always in attendance before they happen! laugh

When I was in South Africa, the only news station I watched was called SKY TV. Very unbiased. I think it was the only news station in that country. Puts both MSNBC & CNN to shame.

My Uncle tells me Fox News is the only channel that tells the unbiased truth, because they said so.
After all these years, he also found out they tell the unbiased truth 24 hours a day, so he never needs to turn it off.
My Uncle is a vey happy man.

I think PBS does the best job. It goes out of its way to present sides of issues, so you get the full monte, so to speak--the event itself and then the sides of the issue debated agains each other.

Bet his uncle especially likes the part about Impeachment !

Oh yeah !! 12 diplomats get killed under Bush and not a peep !! 1 Ambassador gets killed under BO and it's "IMPEACHMENT TIME !"

Reagan got >200 marines killed AND some Embassy personnel (2 events) - what he get ?
"ah he's our hero !!" sick
What was Reagan's response- did he "fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here?" NO he withdrew !! . ."ah but he's our hero !!" sick sick

I may joke, but my Uncle is a true American hero.
Six tours of duty in WW2.

I love him dearly, but it doesn't mean I have to agree with him.

He's really become a different person since 9-11.

I wish I could tell you an unbiased news source, but I don't think they exist.

Doano about "Unbiased" but Keith Olbermann
sure was a lot of fun (at least AFAIWC)

While I was still incarcerated in solitary
(..and talking to myself a whole lot more..)
I created a dissertation about my preference
for Keith Olbermann's not-so-unique-humor.
