  •  Um, they are. (0+ / 0-)

    MSNBC sprang up as a direct response to Fox, since we lacked any progressive major media outlet for so long.  You disagree because you like what is said on MSNBC.  I get it, so do I.  But my eyes are wide open about what it is I'm actually consuming...

    •  To believe that FOX and MSNBC are the same... (0+ / 0-)

      is to believe that the Benghazi, IRS and fast an furious "scandals" have the same newsworthy credibility as the closing of GWB, the false intelligence that led to the Iraq war, and the illegal outing of  Valerie Plame as a CIA covert operative
      is that what you really believe?

      •  Well, no. (0+ / 0-)

        MSNBC doesn't just make shit up, but see, we in the real world know and understand that.  The rest of society takes it as an article of faith that all partisans distort and outright lie about everything.  Perception is reality.  Having said that, even watching MSNBC covering straight news, for example interviewing someone in the studio regarding whatever on one of the various news hour programs outside of prime time, you hear the progressive bias in the questions.  I have to admit that in the name of honesty.  The same thing happens on Fox in the other direction.  But hey they started it, even admitted it up front, because they were set up to be a conservative alternative to CNN from the beginning.  How odd that it is considering that CNN is floundering due to its stated impartiality...

        •  you really DONT seem to "know that" (0+ / 0-)

          if you equate made up stuff with actual news- and if a conclusion is reached using factual evidence that say- taxing billionaires at higher rate helps the economy and giving them tax breaks does the opposite - is that really a progressive bias- or a conclusion reached on factual evidence that happens to go against conservative doctrine?
