NBC takes a left turn post #1  quote:



According to bloggers it appears that they are confirming what some have already known. NBC had taken a turn to the LEFT. Maybe even more so than before.

What is your opinion?

What about NBC is going left? Their sitcoms? Soap Operas? Commericals?

Even if they do, hopefully it will counterbalance FOX leaning so far right.

Plus it appears most of the country is leaning left these days

-HECK!

They do have Tucker Carlson and Pat Buchanan still working for them, so that is some conservative balance at least.

He is talking about their [NBC's] decision to call Iraq a civil war and how they feature leftist gas bags like Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman.

NBC news, and I expect some of their if not all of their programming.

So you are saying that it takes NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN to counter FOX? Even though FOX tends to have as many Left leaners as they do right leaners.

Not it would appear that there are more who oppose the Iraq war. As far as left vs right, I believe that there are more right, and there are more moderates on left than there are far left. The far left is a very small minority but seem to have a very big voice. Considering they consist of the major metropolitian areas like LA, NYC, etc. Most of main stream America is closer to the right.

I watch them all and take what I can from each that I agree with. I do not think you can label any of them [CNN, Fox, MSNBC] as totally one way or the other. There are times when no bias at all is being put on things though, which is what I seek, but other times it is really obvious...on all of them.

Above all though, selling salaciousness is what the cable news channels do best - liberal and conservative, political and non-political. I hope they or someone can come along and rise above it.
