2. "Donahue" was cancelled, and a memo revealed
that MSNBC was concerned that Donahue opposed the Iraq War.

One could argue it has a left-wing bias, but it isn't suffering from right-wing bias.

Liberty News TV is a half-hour show, once a month, on the internet and the satellite channel "Free Speech TV."

4. Why do you always have to ask the difficult questions?
What you just asked, is almost like asking where can you find an honest bone in George Bush's body! :)

I have no problem with newpapers and the like editorializing and opining.

The problem I have with them, is that they are no longer confining their opinion, to the Op/Ed pages.

Newspapers like the Washington Times insert their opinion into what are supposed to be hard-news stories.

Which means that we have to be able to cipher through all the B.S.

5. Check out the DU Media forum.
They might have some ideas floating around over there: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Personally, I like Media Matters, a media watchdog group: http://mediamatters.org /

In reality, all media bears some kind of bias, since media is created and run by humans. The question is really, what kind bias is least offensive to you, left- or right-leaning?

7. Get yerself XM: BBC World Service. or see BBC online.
Is best for balance anywhere on the planet IMO. Will even rip on its own government (see "sexed up" WMDs).

If you want sample the domestic media online at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio

"Today" on Radio 4 gets podcasted. Unfortunately Blair isn't on as often as I'd like (he's scared of John Humphreys) but when he's on it gets interesting. Radio 4 is "speech" radio, there has been more phoneins lately but mainly it's studio based programming. Five Live is mainly for sports but then there's talk and phoneins on that channel.

If you tire of news there's BBC 7 - which is speech without any news in it. It's comedies, shows, discussions, etc. If you fancy getting regional, BBC Radio Scotland is a reasonable station. My old local station was BBC Southern Counties Radio. All of this is at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio

Other non BBC UK news radio tends to be regional or locally biased. London has rolling news http://www.lbcnews1152.co.uk / - and news/talk http://www.lbc973.co.uk / - but this is centered around London.

There's also TalkSport - http://www.talksport.net - a mish-mash of a sports station with a hot talk station. The hot talk happens at night UK time which is perfect for evenings here Stateside.

If you want bits of video, then Sky News http://www.sky.com/news is horribly liberal compared to its evil cousin Faux.

There's not just the UK: remember our Canadian cousins at http://www.cbc.ca - you'll need CBC Radio 1

Unsure what Radio Australia is like these days http://www.abc.net.au/ra / and although CCTV Channel 9 is on DirecTV unsure of what the website is offering (as it's crashing at this time).

I'm sure to think of more. but all for now.

Mark
