As a military guy the environment of which I work is, needless to say, extremely conservative and proud of it (can't say that I'm part of it). As I travel throughout different military bases where television monitors are common Fox News is sort of the status quo. I personnaly wake up to CNN only because I grew up sort of watching that channel w/o even realizing I had much of a choice (thanx mom)?

btw...How long has fox news been around? I can't recall seeing much of it growing up?

Anyway, many tend to lean toward Fox because of its conservative nature? I try to put a little bit of time into seeing what Fox News has to offer but, IMO, some of their stories are so far right that its difficult to stay intersted. It just seems that whatever the President does or doesn's do Fox is there to justify his actions. Its kind of weird because I'm not sure if that would be the case if the tables were reversed. Recall the Bill & Monica saga, every network turned up the notch and blasted Clinton for those 8-10 months of the impeachment.

Many believe all the other channels are more liberal and sort of cater to the left or the non-conservative viewers which may be true. Therefore hopefully this poll is a good gauge on the preferences of Skins fans and why? Just curious on how people feel on this type of stuff, or does it even matter:D

I'm a lib but I usually watch msnbc. I like Olbermann and Tucker Carlson. I don't care for CNN that much and refuse to watch Fox. The talking heads on that channel are intolerable, and not just because I am a lib. Coulter and Hannity simply resort to trying to yell louder then the person they are debating. Colmes is a former stand up comedian... he is owned by Hannity. I used to watch O'Reilly but I got tired of his I am always right attitude.

Hardball is the only Non-Sunday show I watch anymore.

Is that on CNN?

What Sunday shows do you watch?

My dad is a huge Sunday news/political show fan. I always associate them with the Redskins, because I had to suffer through "This Week with David Brinkley" and the "McLaughlin Group" before I could get the remote and turn on Redskins Pregame.

I tend to watch "meet the press" on Sunday mornings. They seem pretty fair and appropriate dealing with whatever topic is hogging the front pages of most newspapers.

Hannity and O'Reilley are down right awful. Whenever a guess tries to make a point is just cuts them off and say, "...well gotta go. Wish we could do this another time."icon13.gif

I like Meet the Press. On too many of the news programs, the anchor seems to be more important than the news itself. Bill O'Reilly is the worst of these but they are all guilty.

Completely agree and Tim Russert appears to be the most balanced anchor I know. I'm not sure which way he leans and he directs the hard questions to both sides.

He's a hard and true blue blood liberal.

It's a testament to his skills that his biases are not apparent.

Does that mean "Meet the Press" is your required Sunday pregame viewing?

No McLaughlin group? That guy is pretty hilarious when he gets into it and starts yelling.

I watch Robin and Co. in the morning. Robin is muy hot.

Headline News used to be my all around favorite because it was just news - no talking heads. That has changed to my disapointment with shows like Nancy Grace.

I try to watch some of all the other networks, to get as many different perspectives as I can.

I watch all the news channels including FOX news, CNN, MSNBC, C-SPAN, I read all kinds of newspapers, I read a variety of blogs, listen to right-wing radio, and BBC. If you get all your information from one source all the time, you are not going to get the full story all the time. If someone knows they are your only source of information then they are free to distort and revise history and they will do so. In other words, if you don't cross-reference, you're going to get burned.

I don't trust FOX news, Newsmax, or right-wing radio because they have an agenda and all have been busted lying, exaggerating, and distorting. I listen because I want to know what the White House is thinking or what is their stategery for trying to manipulate us. These are their attack dogs and one can learn a lot about this administration by studying these people.

I watch MSNBC when I want the other side of the story (which tends to be significant). Half the time the right wing is pretending the left disagrees with them when they really don't. I read the Washington Post because it is the most comprehensive newspaper in the world IMO. I read the NY Times when the Post does not have the same story.

If you want to know what is really said in the House and Senate, you have to watch C-SPAN. No way should you let some talking head give you the highlights or lowlights of a speech. Go straight to the source and watch it for yourself. Confirmation hearings have been very entertaining as of late.

Hardball and Meet the Press are two outstanding Sunday morning shows. They dig deep and have very prominent guests on the most current of events.

I like MSNBC.

I like their middle of the day news, and their line-up at night usually.

Hardball is usually interesting. Countdown's oddball is usually funny. Tucker is decent with his PTI rip-off.

Fox reminds me of an SNL skit where they kept putting more and more graphics on the screen, and started to cover the video and anchors. Reminds you that not matter how you paint up a piece of ****.... that's its still a piece of ****.
