    LOL. Seriously?

    Is Verizon Central primarily liberal, conservative, or neutral?

    I like watching the Daily show from time to time. Wow...a lot of sources.

    All three are neutral, from my POV. Is there such as thing as leftist media, in the USA?

    I am not sure how you can think MSNBC is neutral, I never heard of the last one you named and have no feelings about the washington one good or bad so perhaps that one is neutral. But MSNBC??? really?

    Yes, really.

    I also subscribe to a few liberal magazines, national geographic, science news, traveler, archaeology, blue ridge, skeptic, and several other magazines, but only consider 'news' to be what you can reference day by day. Forums, largely opinion, do not count as 'news'.

    I have watched MSNBC but never found it unbias, just like Fox has a bias.

    Bias in what they decide to report and the way they report it. I see both as very bias.

    Years ago I thought CNN was not bias but I have changed my thinking on that, though I would say they are a bit less bias then MSNBC

    I agree with you.

    I think a lot of people get political/entertainment shows like Countdown confused with 100% straight news of MSNBC NEWS. MSNBC NEWS is a straight news source and they act like it.

    On the other hand FOX NEWS is really not as good at that. If you watch they come at almost every issue from the Right's perspective in some way.

    I often will flip through CNN, MSNBC and FOX at the same time on the same story just to see the differences in coverage. FOX NEWS is definitely the least impartial of the three.

    Which is fine with me... I know it's slanted so that's just a good way for me to quickly pick up on the upcoming Republican talking points.
