Have you thought that it could be less about bias and more about the coverage of the smear campaigns that the McCain/Palin folks are pulling off (Obama's a terrorist, consorts with terrorists, lynchings of Obama cutouts by McCain supporters), because I sure don't remember Obama/Biden spending time talking about McCain's ties to terrorist organizations (the KKK). I will admit I'm surprised about the percentage of positive stories about Obama being greater than McCains, though that could be due to there being less solid grounds for them to attack him. And, what was already stated, this was between two news stations, not all news stations, which hardly counts for evidence that Fox news isn't biased.

actually they win because so much of what they report constitutes yellow journalism that they can't really be called reports.

The smallest and least powerful news outlets, the local news stations.

The smallest and least powerful news outlets, the local news stations. I think these would be the least likely to display a politcal or social bias.

China's Xinhua News Agency is pretty biased.

I would say MSNBC but they are a little biased too, not as bad as Fox noise, in Canada we have the CBC which
one of the better news channels and it is owned by the public, Fox is owned and ran by Rupert Murdock.

The one that broadcasted RON PAUL'S speeches are the least biased.

Which one? Probably none on TV. Oh, that's it. The interNET. Very Happy
