    Yes They are honest brokers of information

    No NBC News, CBS News,, ABC News, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post (and others) have a cultural bias and will distort the facts to fit their narrative.

    No. By using false information they become complicit in the MSM lies, and distort the public discourse.

    For some of the media I'll consider their input. MSNBC and NBC are beyond the pale. Christiean Science Monitor is probably the best and the Washington Post seems to be trying.

    Obviously, anyone relying on the legacy media is going to be influenced by the extreme corporate conservative bias of the legacy media, and those people can't be trusted to be objective.

    Taxcutter seems to understand that now. The conservative bias of our national mainstream media has gotten so blatant, even the most extreme conservative partisans are getting offended by it.

    Funny, all I hear from conservatives is that the MSM (except Fox) is liberal biased. But the issue isn't left/right; that is just how things are presented to us, so that half the country will fight the other half over ideologies that are really irrelevant to the situation, while the top 1% yuks it up on their yachts about how stupid we are, because we have all been fooled into thinking in a false dichotomy. Divide and conquer. The few who rule us all are no match for our combined numbers, so they play us off against each other. We are too busy calling each other communists, marxists, nazis, and statists to notice the thieves that are robbing us blind. Or to notice that they will use any means across the political spectrum to do so.

    "the few who rule us all"??

    LMAO

    Look man, no one rules me. Not the banks, not my employer, no one. I can come and go anywhere in these United States I wish to go and even large parts of the world and can come and go as I please within certain reasonable limitations.

    The 1% may "rule" you. But I work for the 1% and they have been nothing but good to me and given me opportunities that people in today's economic envrionment would kill for.

    I'm sorry but those channels seem to be limited to Government TV. Consider though that pity only gets you so far.

    That is truly delusional. Funny but delusional. consider, if you will, MSNBC, and then travel through the Mamooth Twilight Zone. Or, consider NYT, LATimes, ABC, CNN, AP, Reutrers. Not a conservative peep out of the bunch.

    Go, ahead, Mamooth, and move up from Daily Kos talking points and think for yourself.

    You are fooling yourself, and in no way did you refute what I said.

    there are good and bad people, if corps are to be considered people, then corps can be bad and when they are bad.... they should be locked up like other bad people, take away their freedom like other bad people, isn't that what conservatives believe... corps are people?

    After so many years, decades, of being lied to and screwed by leftists, I don't trust anyone on the left. They can't tell the truth and rule so they lie.

    In terms of providing accurate information, is NBC News any better than Stormfront?

    Is political bigotry any different than racial bigotry?
