  • Of course the main stream media is biased!! How do you think Obama got elected? It certainly wasn't for his experience! Watch the documentary "Media Malpractice". It's eye opening! The ONLY station I have seen that is not left wing is Fox News, and they are without a doubt conservative. The media should stick to reporting the news and not put their bias spin on it at all!

  • If you are concerned about media bias, why do you use biased sources to support that idea?!

  • MSM is generally considered ABC, CBS, NBC. They all lean to the LEFT

    Cable Media outlets are CNN, FOX, MSNBC. CNN and MSNBC lean to the LEFT

    Then you have your newspaper and internet sources. Most mainstream newspapers lean to the LEFT.  WSJ tend to lean to the right, but they tend to bring out reliable sources from both sides.

    Most others lean to the LEFT. A very few lean to the RIGHT. Yet, if you look at ratings, Fox and WSJ are two media outlets not hurting financially and tend to have higher ratings and viewers. Many of the left leaning media outlets are financially hurting and are losing ratings. Kinda puts some things into perspective, imo

  • ??

    MSM = mainstream media. That means ALL channels, broadcast and cable. And all other forms of media.

    Funny thing is most MSM ownership is Republican/conservative. Especially on the local station level and amongst local newspapers (of all the SoCal dailies I refer to every day, only ONE is considered left-leaning).

    you find what you're looking for, I think. If you want to find that most media is liberal you will be able to turn that up. I think it's a lot more even than that.

  • WSJ use reliable sources? That's laughable.

    People should just start reading the bills in Congress (it takes a whopping 30 seconds to find them online) and educating themselves about what's going on. Ignore the MSM, Cable news networks, etc. They are ALL biased, form your own opinion based on what YOU learn not what someone else tells you should think.
