How many times are libtards on here going to type 'faux news?' What a bunch of lemmings. I was going to be a libtard, but I can think for myself....it's an automatic disqualification

I'm getting real tired of cable. The History chanel and National Geographic is doing what MTV did years ago. MTV stopped playing music videos and became a reality show. Now it seems cable tv is based on reality tv. And I don't even like the reality presented. Hard to pick out what is news and what is propoganda on cable news too. And cable news and reality tv does nothing but spread poison and dumbs us down. What ever happended to presenting more than one viewpoint?

The only good things to me on TV (in my mind) are sports, weather, movies, and some sitcoms. Time to ditch cable and go outside and enjoy the day. Sorry for the rant. I do feel a little better.

By far the most reliable of the listed channels to actually provide valuable news and information is the Weather Channel. There is no left or right to "sunny today" or "snow tomorrow." The others give opinion as often as they provide news, and how anyone can watch Fox or MSNBC with regularity is beyond me.

Faux winning no doubt due to the tripe they dig up in the name of "Fair and Balanced", and the willingness of much of the American public to eat it up. Part of the dumbing of America, also as evidence by the mindless crap that the Fox TV network puts on.

So not have a favorite 24-hour cable channel. Wondering what will happen with our cable channels and bills since the Wall Street Journal says Knology is "shopping itself to potential buyers, including private-equity firms, people familiar with the matter said." WSJ Corporate News on Feb 29, 2012, also on-line at WSJ.

kosmo513: What is it with you Repubs: You regurgitating about MSNBC watching, Santorum vomiting when reading about JFK's separation of church and state speech, and Bush 41 throwing-up on the Japanese Prime Minister at a State dinner. If I had a steady diet of tripe as delivered from Faux, I'd probably suffer the same consequences.

It is only one more month for baseball and man I'm dragging to the finish line.

Getting tired of Ice road truckers, preppers, swamp people, gold miners, pawn shops, shows about prisons, tatoos. loggers,

I feel better now.

Anything other than stupid American's talking about other stupid Americans.

CNN has it right. I LOVE how they started hiring all these insightful journalists with British accents. I can watch it and feel like I'm finally not surrounded by stupid knuckle dragging americans. Especially Piers Morgan, wow, did CNN hit a home run with that guy or what!

The BBC is best, and French tv (English) edition is second. You can watch BBC television on the internet, and also French TV (English, French or Arabic) is also on the internet. It is much better than American television.

Why didn't they list the BBC in the poll? Is it because they didn't know it exists???

Japan TV (on the internet) is also very good, as well as Australian TV (on the internet).

I like Faux news. Where else can you watch Bill "The Know it All" O'Reilly, Sean "Dumber than a fence post" Hannity, and the rest of the slanted to the right news gang. The information they report is soooo tainted that I bet that they get up in the morning and have frosty mug of Santorum.

One third of respondents to this poll watch Fox? In LAWRENCE??!! Well there is hope for this little ole town yet. MSNBC. Really? People watch that? Their ratings are consistently almost negligible. Almost no one on a national level watches them. How could you? I have tried and nearly regurgitate every time.

Juan Williams was great when he stuck to general interest and science related programs when he was at NPR. Juan got in trouble when he drifted into quicksand with some of his insensitive comments and he developed a bit of a sanctimonious attitude. This Fauxy metamorphosis made him a "natural" addition to the likes of O'Reilly, Hanratty, Colmes, Caputo, Wallace, etc., etc.

Who hired liberal Juan Williams after NPR dumped him? Other Fox news liberal contributors include Alan Colmes, Ellis Henican, Marc Lamont Hill and Susan Estrich. Fox is "fair and balanced" unlike ABC. CBS, CNN, PMSNBC and the rest of the lamestream media.

ESPN, and only when they aren't in a 30 minute fluff piece on Lin, Tebow, Tiger, or LeBron. FOX and MSNBC are both batty and CNN puts too much spin on things. Plus CNN has too many shows and commercials with Fareed Zarkaria. He scares me... just look at his eyes, he is the devil.

News is best obtained from several sources on the internet.

Hands down, no contest. The Weather Channel. Stephanie and Jen just make may day. Besides, who care about Fox or CNN, that is all spin on both sides. Lies and half truths. The weather is real.

Life was better before the 24 hour spin channels came around.

Fox is the worst. Not news. Just a continuous conservative editorial. Anyone who cannot admit that has zero creditability with me. Period.

MSNBC is the same continuous editorial for the liberals. I am a liberal and do not approve of them spinning things even though I often agree with them.

CNN is a confused little mouse in that cannot figure out which side it wants to spin. Sometimes they seem to figure out that objective news with no slant is best, but the reality is the slanted spin BS is what sells to the stupid people of this country that cannot think for themselves. So, CNN Is often weak and tries to sell the spin for ratings....(they had that idiot Glenn Beck for that very reason for a while)

I get my news from the internet from multiple sourse. I try to ignore the BS spin just like I try to avoid eating at McDonalds.......
