FOX (because its the only one that's right of center), MSNBC (because it is considerably liberal-see: Keith Olberman).

It is best to get both sides of the news. I don't do CNN because they are boring, elitist AND obnoxiously liberal (See Cafferty, Zahn, Peterson, Cooper, Greenburg or any other reporters who use to work-and might as well still be working-for the Democratic party.)


"Liberal because I care" is like calling yourself, "Nazi because I'm a Zionist." Everything liberals do hurts the economy, the little guy and creates injustice.

And as far as the Christian=liberal fallacy, even if Jesus would have supported killing babies just to create sexual unaccountability, Mafia-style labor unions, frivolous lawsuits, punishing people for success, the bible is clear about having different expectations for politicians than common folk. Clinton's eight-year non-response to Al Queda, campaign financing from Anti-Christian, Communist China and his appeasements for North Korea would not be rewarded by the Christian God.

Have you ever read the Bible? Do you think that Conservatives are any more "Christian" than Liberals?

Lewis Black! Right on brother.

"...and if you walk to the end of the block, there sits a Starbucks. And directly across the street -- in the exact same building as that Starbucks -- there is... another Starbucks. There is a Starbucks across the street from a Starbucks! And ladies and gentlemen, THAT is the end of the universe." - Lewis Black"
