1. The only news show worth watching on PBS is Bill Moyer's.
The rest of them are the same media whores as the M$M.

3. This is the first time, in a long time, they got this whorish!
I watch them for more 'in depth' news/insight and I use a large grain of salt but tonight was over the top!!

6. They try to have a veneer of journalistic respectability that the other more
blatant news programs and channels haven't, but I noticed years ago how biased they were underneath all the intellectual hoohaw. Then I started looking into the credentials of their anchors and reporters and I couldn't find a liberal among them. What especially did it for me was when they dumped Bill Moyers from NOW. Of course he's back now with his own show but he's the only one you can watch and believe you are getting the unbiased truth.

11. What about Frontline, they were the only ones reporting the truth about the Iraq occupation and...
its gross mismanagement. I know they've had some hatchet-job reporting that praised repubs (ie the H.W. Bush bio), but they do mostly seem to aim for the truth. That two part episode "Bush's War" was very good.

12. They aren't bad like you said when they are focused on exposing the
truth on some issues, but I only watch them if it's something special like that.
