News source? I personally watch MSNBC for my news but many of my friends like to watch Fox News for their news. Which news station(s) do you prefer to watch? Do you find one to be better than all the rest?
I like to watch the local news channel for news happening about my area. But I watch Fox News for news outside my area. Cant really say which one is better.

I heard FOX news is rigged.
Fox isn't rigged. If you actually watch it, you see that they do have an "opinion" and they are slanted a bit to the right, but they ALWAYS have at least one opposing point of view. And i'm not talking about moderate conservatives, they bring on people from the left as well as from the FAR, FAR left and let them get their point across. Sometimes, I even get mad at watching some of these loonies spew their nonsense.
So Fox isn't any worse or better than MSNBC or CNN. Personally, I watch both MSNBC and Fox and BBC. I can see the very obvious bias that each of them has (but less so with BBC tv news, even though their website is notoriously biased in their discussions and the way they frame their stories).
FOX News is the only news channel(non-local anyways) that isn't biased one way or the other so thats why I watch.

As for television news I check the NOS news ([SIZE=-1]Dutch Broadcasting Foundation) [/SIZE]which is a broadcaster in the Dutch public broadcasting system dedicated to news, current affairs etc. It's objective and less after "popular" news or "action" or "gossip" like news those commercial news broadcasters are pretty much all about. Those annoy me a lot, and I fail to understand why you would want a commercial break between the news and the weather forcast or interupt a movie for some gossip news program? So state funded news ftw!
As for newspapers: I read my local newspaper "Leidsch Dagblad" and I check nu.nl | Het laatste nieuws lees je het eerst op NU.nl ("www.now") for news aswell.
I watch the local news as well.
We are really running out of topics.
Edit: Post Jump!
I watch CNN and Fox. CNN has a bit of a liberal slant and Fox has a conservative slant.
