Which News do you watch?

Apparently Fox News is and has been number one for awhile with Nielson Ratings.

Looks like MSNBC going all out liberal isn't working out for them.

  • I watch MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News.

    Mostly MSNBC.

    But I take it all with a grain of salt. I know every news network has an agenda.

  • I watch FOX and find it fascinating that the vocal people who criticize it sop stringently don't realize that FOX has such a lions share of the viewers. It's because they DO show both sides and they DO have people from both sides! I watch some other channels sometimes and all 4 people in the boxes are saying the same thing. There is NO alternate point of view!

  • I don't, unless there's something major going on (hurricaines, election day). I watch local NBC news and some of the Today show, everything else is online - you get a better picture reading BBC, AlJazeera, CNN, FOX and the wires than trying to flip between channels. You also get to skip all the annoying commentary that everyone thinks is news and uses to judge a station.

  • I watch Bill O'Reilly and Hannity on FOX news. Chris Matthews is a wind bag, Keith Olbermann is just plain childish, and Rachel Madden has got to be a man.

  • I don't watch the news. I do like to watch Red Eye on Fox News. Not news at all but so funny.

  • I have watched Fox for yrs. now, but at one time missed them not having anything lifestyle or about celebrities, so they are not like Star magazine at all.

    But, who can stand liberal Katie Couric long enough to give Fox a break for a few minutes. I don't want to be lied to right to my face.
