Wanna go Double Dutch?

How does your country's news program look like? What things does it normally show and/or hide? Is it biased or unbiased? Do you think that it is a good or a bad news program? tell us about your countries news program! You may even show us some pictures/movies/quotes etc. I know that almost every country has multiple news programs but you can talk select 1 (the national or most popular news) or 2 (the best and worst news) news programs.
Our most popular (and oldest) news program is the NOS news (NOS stands for "Dutch Broadcasting Foundation" . We only have 1 news presenter (it looks more profesional and less chaotic IMO then 2 presenters swapping lines al the time). Our weather forcast also shows the weather forcast for the rest of europe and not only the dutch weather forcast. The NOS makes programs on radio,TV, teletext and internet. They are specific programmes in the field of news, parliamentary press coverage, sport and current events.
About seven hundred journalists and employees look after the annually (daily) retransmissions of the news, "Jeugdjournaal" (the news for young people) , "studio sport", "Den Haag Vandaag" ("The Hague today"), " Langs de Lijn" ("along the line") , "Met het Oog op Morgen"("with a view to morning"), the radio news, radio 1 news and "Nos-Actueel" ("NOS current events") more than 2000 hour television and more then 4000 hours of radio programs a year. Moreover the NOS 24 looks after hours per day up-to-date information on Nos-Teletexst and on the Internet. The programmes of NOS radio and television are current, objective, reliably and nearly always direct.
Here is an video example of the news (you can watch news broadcast on the internet ):

Well I think that the BBC is one of the best news programs in England, although they arent very sympathetic with labour, but then again, who is? http://news.bbc.co.uk
I think the BBC has crappy news, and CNN,..but I watch the world news version, cuz I know the US CNN is better than CNN in the UK.
We get alot of news here, but one of the more popular ones is.
I don't feel like going in-depth into our news...but really the major ones are ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, etc, etc, etc....not including the thousands of local news stations...

MihailWe get alot of news here, but one of the more popular ones is. http://www.ntv.ru
hehe i can read that (this is NOT bashing, its a joke, i like russia) What is your opinion on the news (goes for all who replied) Show us some pictures (i know the BBC and CCN international news, they broadcast them here too, but i wonder what a russian news program looks like). BTW: we have NOS, RTL4, "Hart van Nederland" by SBS and local news stations (1 for every province, 12). We can also receive: BBC, CNN, SNBS (or what is the thing called whit the rainbow colored flower as a logo), euronews, WDR (german news ), TV1 (Belgian news)and "France 2" (french news)
The BBC have good news. Their coverage is available almost anywhere in the world on long wave radio.
Channel 4 news is also very good imo. I like John Snow, he hits home and doesn't let polititians weasel their way out of sticky topics. He has also presented some very interesting documentaries on journalism.
Radio 5 Live has some excellent sports coverage.
News in America has gone off the deep end. They show the pictures of iraqi prisoners at lest one every 10 minutes. News in America is very biased. Fox says there "fair and blanced" but they are not. They just get democrats and republicans arguing over very small issues.
american news is the most biased stuff around. It changes from ultra-liberal to ultra-conservative. the only thing that is in between is NPR.
