Of all the cable news channels...which one do you HATE least?
I've been so sick of the cable news networks, but I've dicovered "ABC News Now" hidden further up my cable box channels. They seem way better than "the pitiful three"...FOX MSNBC and CNN. They all seem relaxed and more bipartisan, less talking head. Any of you ever watch it?

1. I've heard others mention it also - we don't have it here yet
Still stuck with CNN, MSNBC and Faux.

5. Because of Keef, I'm going with MSNBC.
Other than his show, I haven't watched any news networks. Honestly. And it's staying like that until we get some good breaking news.

6. Ditto. Keith alone is reason enough to pick MSNBC
They're okay during the daytime--about the same as the rest, I guess, and I avoid 7-8 (Hardball w/Chris "Tweety" Matthews) and the 10-11pm timeslot like the plague (Scary-brough). But Keith is just the best.

10. MSNBC
but I have only watched the local news since the election and then only for updates regarding school/weather schedules. If you think the MSM is bad, you should see what passes for local news here. It is unbelievable.
