And if you notice, PBS and NPR do not have the same degree of bias as most other news outlets, and perhaps that's because they are publicly funded and do not need to earn a profit.
CNN isn't organizationslly biased to the left? Lol.
Is CNN is openly partisan as FOX and MSNBC? No. But they are unquestionably biased on an organizational and editorial level, via both what they choose to cover, and as important, what they omit to cover or give only fleeting coverage to. There is more ways than one to be biased, and silence can be as loud as screaming when it comes to media.
PBS isn't as biased as anyone else? Lol.
Profit isn't the only creator of bias. For example, PUBLIC broadcasting, being public and all, might just be biased to the Government that funds it, and the party who promotes ongoing funding of it, wouldn't you think?
After reading your post, then re-reading Axil's, I support his view even more.
Reminds me of the day of Obama's inauguration in January 2009.
Fox news was the only news org to show from beginning to end GWB's long walk to the waiting Marine chopper and then showing the chopper lifting off from the white house lawn and tracking them all the way out of the city.
Fox should be commended for covering this angle of transition of power from one president to the next. But perhaps, they only featured this footage as the new org who actually felt it was newsworthy to show every second of GWB's departure from the presidency....so who knows....
I just think its kinda weak that people will patently refuse to listen/watch certain channels, newspapers, websites as the feel said organizations are simply mouthpieces of whatever agenda they're trying to push. When if that its indeed the case, wouldn't it behoove anyone who feels this way to monitor very closely what the opposition is saying and how to best counter their version of news?
Kinda like the classic Howard Stern phenomenon that opponents of his listened to his show over an hour more than fans of his show.....
Fox News is a lot more than just a conservative leaning media network, like MSNB on the liberal side.

Ailes added, “It sounds like she thought she was on a secret mission in the Reagan administration. . . . She was way out of line. . . . It’s someone’s fantasy to make me a kingmaker. It’s not my job.” He said that McFarland was not an employee of Fox but a contributor paid less than $75,000 a year.
Amazing how such an enormous chunk of the supposed nativist, small-town middle-America obsessed Tea Party candidates funding is coming from a businessman in Macau of all places.
