    Given the unknown…
    that there are rich Democrats and poor Republicans…

    I speculate that…

    1. most conservatives watch FOXNEWS,
      2)more moderates and undecideds watch FOXNEWS,
    2. a bigger % of viewers stick with more of CNN lineup than with other nets[See *** above],
    3. MSNBC better have really cheap advertising rates or a Sugadaddy with bottomless pockets.

    I watch Fox, CNN, BBC and ABC when I can. I figure between the four of them, I get the vast majority of the actual facts and they’ll contradict each other on their spin. Kinda like white noise filtering out the spin while the facts slip through.

    Agencies I avoid like the plague:

    CBS (can we say Dan Rather? Can we say 3 instances of falsified reports either purposly or because of ineptitude in their reporting ability during the elections? Can we say spin???)

    I also tend to avoid NBC/MSNBC mainly because it’s owned by Microsoft and I don’t trust corporations that sell products or services to protray the news correctly.

    While I have tons of reasons to distrust Spanish, French, German and Canadian news agencies, from their actual papers, I’ll refrain from specifics because I don’t have enough time to sit around scanning articles into PDF form and posting them right now. Suffice it to say, the fiction they print in their daily periodicals is humorous at best, evil at worst.
