John? I think you missed the recent PEW study results. Fox, by "far", was proven to be more factual than your MSNBC. I think it stated MSNBC news were 85% opinion based, and only 15% fact base. Seriously go check the study out. It seems then, that it has been you who was fed cool-aid.
So John, as Professor has been schooling you all along, his sources are far more factual than yours.
Read the report again. What they said is that Fox and CNN run a higher ratio of hard news to opinion than does MSNBC. Of, course, MSNBC does not bill itself as a news channel, it has always openly billed itself as an opinion and commentary outlet, at least since Keith Olbermann worked there. Fox, on the other hand bills itself as a "news" channel, without regard to the fact that so much of the "hard news" that they present is little more than political propaganda. The blather dripping from pie holes on the likes of Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly, and I even see some suggestion that they may even resurrect Glenn Beck, is, quite frankly, not only opinion, but willfully wrong opinion.

Fox's "hard news" anchors, for the most part, inject opinion into every broadcast, so we may safely conclude that PEW was simply accepting that what Fox called "hard news" was, in fact, hard news, without regard to its actual content. The only Fox anchors that offer even flashes of even handedness are Shepard Smith and, very occasionally Chris Wallace. In view of that, a good case can be made that Fox's "hard news" coverage is at least 75% opinion.

John? The recognized experts rules you wrong. You're entilted to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Right?

http://www.businessinsider.com/msnbc-fox-news...

A separate Pew Research examination of programming in December 2012 found MSNBC by far the most opinionated of the three networks, with nearly 90% of its primetime coverage coming in the form of opinion or commentary.

There are "several" articles contesting & clipping parts of the PW study above, so read the actual Report John.

As I pointed out to anyone who actually read my comment, MSNBC does not bill itself as anything other than a primarily opinion and commentary channel, so we should be very surprised to see them offering anything else.

The PEW study did not make judgments on content, they only compared the amounts of air time devoted to what the channels themselves billed as opinion or, what PEW could have found a more accurate term for, "factual news". If they had made judgments on content, PEW would have necessarily avoided applying as fanciful a term as "factual" to what Fox News puts out.

John... You raise a good point. However, PEW is a non-partisain point of view research center. Facts, just the facts. No offense, but I seriously doubt you have credentials to dispute their assessment modeling. I realize that's it's harder for Liberals to accept facts as facts, and I realize FOX is the Liberal anti-Christ too. However, using a very reputable organization such as PEW, all they are presenting are results of a common baseline assessment. As in, you want the most "facts", it's CNN, you want the least "facts" it's MSNBC, Fox being in the middle. Lastly, as you would (should) know, an aweful lot of programs on FOX are clearly not news (Huckabee, Hanity, Wallace, Greta, as examples). So even with this, FOX is documented as presenting "far more" hard facts than MSNBC. Spin it all you want, but as they say, "it is what it is".

Here's a fact, you are flat out misrepresenting the results of the research done by PEW. Don't take my word for it, ask them.

I just heard the IL unemployment level is 9.6%.

You may be making money on Calls & Puts Four More, but 9.6% of those that work for a pay check, don't think 4 more years of this is very good.

I'm making money investing in America. The market historically rises more under Democratic presidents. I've been unemployed before. It's not fun and my heart goes out to anyone in that situation. Thank God there are government programs to help these people. It's too bad unemployment almost doubled under W. Didn't that bother you?Thank God we have term limits or he could have destroyed the free world even more. One term was too much.

Obama holds the record for highest and long term unemployment, most citizens driven onto welfare, highest energy prices, highest accumulated debt, weakest military, worst GDP, etc, etc, in case you didn't know this........this is bad?

You are nuts. The Republicans ran the government for 8 years and were elected once again and then the Great Depression occurred.I think unemployment etc. was a lot higher then. Did you know unemployment almost DOUBLED under W?Energy costs were higher on 7/11/2008. Oil was $147.
Really you have all this time to spew your garbage and all too often it is completely false. Grow up and don't make things up to support your position. You don't know how lucky you are that Romney lost.

I do like the fact that Obama seems to be killing more terrorists with drones and assassinations than Bush. He seems to be more active in that category.

Gee, Professor, instead of regurgitating the impressions that you receive from being hypnotized by Fox News (or are you watching Fox Business?), why don't you get some official statistics and do a comparison of economic performance between the first four years of Obama, versus the last eight years of Republican rule? What you will find is that the first four years of Obama have produced over ten times more private sector jobs than all eight years of Bush. While Republican governors have been trying to raise the unemployment rate by firing public sector workers, under Bush the federal work force expanded. The stock market swooned under Bush, it has set record highs under Obama. Ask any investor and they will tell you that their investments do better under Democratic administrations than they do under Republican administrations.
If, as you say, Obama is a socialist, he has got to be the world's most ineffective socialist, and after a realistic appraisal of the last couple of decades' economic performance, I wouldn't be surprised to see even you throw over your delusions and convert to that sort of socialism.
Oh. My. GOD. Another low-information useful idiot.
