    Even 'liberal darling' MSNBC has Joe Scarborough and Prison Porn Weekends. And they're owned by Comcast.

    We're not allowed access to truly leftist ideas in the US traditional media. Example: 'Socialism' is an insult whether you watch ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, or anything else.

    Paul Ryan has risen to prominence because he thinks that poor people should suffer and he doesn't mind saying so.

      close together in their Right-leaning ways?  And that's supposed to lend credibility to your argument?  Be careful, you're treading awfully close to the same ol' conspiracy theories rhetoric of the Right.

      I don't think the non-Fox media is really any good, but to suggest there's little room between them and Fox just isn't true.  Or you simply think a hell of lot more of Fox than I do.

            in America, MSNBC represents the leftmost viewpoint and Fox represents... well, mostly yellow journalism and outright lies. But you know what I mean.

            That's the extent of the spectrum here.

            To most first world humans, MSNBC would be considered moderate, not far left. We don't have a far left on the TV.

              point is that regardless of how bad you may view all the non-Fox media, there is a chasm the size of the grand canyon between the two in terms of the being news providers.  Whoever it was earlier was suggesting that the non-Fox news sources are so bad that there's really not much light between the two.  Just slight shade variation on the color spectrum is essentially how one put it.  I couldn't disagree more, regardless of how bad you think non-Fox is.  Is that really debatable??
