    All things Considered in my opinion is one of the better radio news programs; I think most of their reporting is very objective on that program.

    Btw I was wrong on Bret Baier, I meant Shepard Smith. Me bad. lol

    It would be better to watch Faux Propaganda then at the same time switch over to MSNBC and Rachel and the crew! The contrast between the two is STUNNING!It causes many seizures and head explosions!

    NPR said it fired him for his views. They said it. He made the mistake of saying Trump was correct one day and they fired him for it. It's on them not me.

    I like that people tune in to watch opinion shows and equate that with hard news reporting. It is all trickled through here and I am surprised at some of the posters comments.

    Hey left, no matter how smart you like to think Rachael M is she is not the news. Same with Tucker Carlson or whomever. Not the news. They cater to an audience and feed them to get ratings which keeps them employed.
    Who said they were news sources. No one. Commentaries are opinions and no has said they weren't. I hate to defend the left but I have never read a single post equating Rachel Maddog with a reporter.

    I tend to watch Fox or CNN. Depends on who turns on the news... but it can be hard to take some things seriously. CNN brings on some crazy people that are supposed to be the Trump supporters during debates. But I had to laugh last night because Tucker Carlson (think that's his name) had a woman on who was a "North Korea sympathizer" and it was such a caricature and clearly an attempt to make anyone who doesn't want war (or just liberals) to look bat$#@!. It was ridiculous. CNN may bring in a few questionable Trump supporters but most people see through it. The NK sympathizer was just... bizarre. She was saying they are the healthiest people and the famine happened years ago. Like, it was as if they went out and found the least educated most extreme idiot to try and make some convoluted point about the left.

    My autocorrect the will change "you" to "touch" if I accidentally hit the "t" instead of the "y". Which happens occasionally on this tiny phone keyboard. Surely you were able to figure out what the sentence was supposed to mean.
