CNN Anderson Cooper tells us "we deliver the facts, not opinion"

and that is why I watch it. I like to get my news from mulitple sources and make up my own mind. Why do you watch the news that you watch?

1. I don't know that he's right about that.

I think it's too close to call.

(sorry, doesn't answer your question, but I wanted to say it anyway)

6. LOL. I think the gop pulled one on the msm on polls. Told them

their polls had GOP turnout much higher than it was. Wouldn't be the first time a member of the MSM had drunk the cool-aid

5. I actually like AC and think that he has a grip on reality even if CNN does not.

7. Use more than one source.

Do not let CNN be your only source. Most times, do not let CNN be your source at all.

8. I try to watch and especially read (foreign sources)...then throw them all into a hopper and

determine what passes muster or not.

Sad that one has to go to that effort as most don't, hence the 'sheeple'.

10. When I want to hear both sides, for sure, I watch CNN. I've found that it has fuller coverage....

and includes things you may not want to hear.

But I regularly watch MSNBC, of course. It has good news coverage. I've noticed, however, if I get it from the political after-work shows, it really is biased. Not as biased as.....

I flip to FAUX occasionally, but it's just to see what they're covering...I can only take it for a few minutes. Altho a friend tells me that...whatshisname, Chris Wallace's show, is pretty fair and informative. I wouldn't know.

I never watch the regular networks.

12. Because I can't stand the other channels

I like Anderson Cooper. I used to hate Wolf Blitzer, but I like him better now. He seems tilted toward Obama - you can only detect it in his facial expressions - not his commentary...

I can always catch Ed Schults on another time slot - Anderson & Ed are both on at 8 here...
