That's why, for the longest time, I preferred to get my news from "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report." They have no problem insulting either political party or calling bullshit on other news sources when they're clearly reporting things with bias.
Those are both fun shows but I would never use them as my main news sources. That will do nothing but give you a very cynical, very distorted view of reality.
True... but at least you won't have to suffer through all the fluff pieces on the evening news.
You make a good point here. Either left or right leaning, it's mostly fluff. What I find lacking in most news programming is a lack of substance.
