Heheh.. I have the tv on in the office here, listening to Fox news..and the anchor guy in the studio just lost his cool..

"From email we have the following questions...

'is that Helmet a Souveigneer?'

and (the guy frowned as he read the email before continuing)

.... Will you people stop with the damn Bathroom questions? Don't you have a dog? Look around them, there is no rest stops with public bathrooms.."

and the station immediately went to a comercial... LOL!

Fox is the only conservitive slant media out which is a refreshing change to the soicalist PC crowd on the other stations.
:lol:

I prefer my news without a slant. That's why I listen to many different sources. Lets you determine where the bias lies.

The BBC has a great website covering the war. I've been following them, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR -- occasionally I'll watch ABC or the local guys.

I usually switch between Fox, CNN and BBC actually... Just happens that I was watching Fox when this cat did that... They do seem less stuffy than the rest tho...

You listed 5 sources of news but they look the same to me.

Fox news is a little immature for me, but its the channel I tune to 1st for late breaking warfield images or juicy info. They cover that well, esp with that whore Geraldo. :D

BBC website does a good job organizing info into specific sections, but now at war time its really right there with the US news. Before all this war stuff, I would read BBC for a refreshing different angle on world news...but as of the war its really no different. (there are very few examples that show different opinion)

I listen to NPR for non war related info, I like the random stuff they talk about. From a political standpoint, NPR has its critics too. I personally like NPR for the most part, including their political info. On my daily commute, I find myself listening to it a lot.

You can stream it off the net at npr.org
They have some really excellent programs on NPR.

I Know thats how I normally listen to it... Mike said its on a radio station up in Philly (which I have heard before, but never able to find..) and generally, when I am on my long haul back from Philly to Quantico, its like 2:00 in the morning or so, and I am just not in the mood for music right away... I generally hunt for some news or talk..but at 2am on a sunday night/monday morning...choices are few and far between...

Ahh..no wonder... I was looking on AM... I kinda ignore everything below 92 and above 105 on the radio dial as it generally tends to be the PBS of radio type stations...

thanks

Yep -- that's why I listen to so many different sources.
...kind of like a Venn Diagram -- I tend to get more of the 'middle' as the sources overlap.
