    I mainly view CNN for regular boring news but I look at CNN, MSNBC, discovery, national geographic, and sometimes others for nature news.... and I listen to alan colmes on the radio ... which is fox.. but he's a liberal so...
    anyway
    I don't think the whole channel is biased but different programs are. Lou dobbs is obviously conservative, etc...

    I know some people who've given up on US news and go to sources like the BBC primarily.

    Yeah, I generally don't read the news much anymore unless I'm bored... I have a friend that reads lots of foriegn newspapers online and I just talk to her when I want to know what's up. :)
    I know there are good news people out there - I have a good friend who works at CNN and several journalists in my family. Problems just start cropping up when people are thinking about costs and subscribers and profits; the whole thing gets deluded.

    I agree with this method. Sort through the facts and come to your own conclusion.
    As far as the BBC...that is one of the most biased news programs in the whole world...except Al Jazeera (spelling).

    I run the gamut, from Drudge, CNN, BBC to Air America. Being an unapologetic liberal, I find the "news" from Faux News pretty comical (convicted felon Oliver North as a correspondent??), but that's just my bias. If the story is serious, it's best to cross-reference with several sources.

    I watched CNN during most of the 9/11 and Baghdad bombing stuff, but generally I only watch the news during that split second between me sitting in the recliner watching The X-Files and me stomping off to my room when my grandfather waltzes in and changes it to the news -_^ I get my news from the unapologetically liberal Daily Show. But you know this.
