Actually, I would consider FNC to be center-right--not "very right leaning."

And even then, it is only as regarding its nighttime anchors (i.e. Tucker Carlson; Sean Hannity; and Laura Ingraham).

Now, I would not really have a problem if they were simply candid about their leftist bias--the Atlantic magazine, for instance, leans heavily to the left; and I am not at all disturbed about this--but to present themselves as actual "news" organizations seems enormously disingenuous, in my view.

Comments?
foxnews, and now several online and roku accessible news outlets are biased, as well as of course most a m radio was bought out by and spouts rw propaganda since the early eighties; they even have propaganda on their entertainment shows sometimes. .
msn and cnn are more and more liberal and in the tank for dems.
I find ABC, CBS, and NBC pretty even handed.

We have a roku device and awhile back we downloaded Haystack which is a variety news source. You should try it. HAs a bit of everything.

Until you and others are able to see the bias of ABC, NBC, & CBS this problem
will continue.

I am really not familiar with Roku.

As for FNC, as I have noted previously, it is really pretty much down the middle, until one gets to the nighttime anchors. And even then, there is no pretense that Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham are presenting straight news; they are actual commentators--as regarding which, there is surely nothing wrong--just so long as it is not disguised as straight news.

Roku is simply a device, similar to a FireStick, which allows the user to download and run different streaming sources such as NetFlix or Hulu. Many of the newer smart TV's also employ this technology.

I wish I could actually post content, but this is one of the best news sites I've stumbled across.

You remember when news was providing FACTS, and you could make up your own mind, or do additional research that didn't tell you WHAT to think??

Correct....

The 10-15% fringe on either side are the folks that embarrass everyone...
