Which talking heads channels do you watch before and after the debates?
 
I've been flipping through the channels.

Are there any that are not biased and impartial?

Which channels do you like? Dislike?

MSNBC so I can find out who won...

Trivers 10-11-2012 06:38 PM

I think MSNBC is as bad as FOX.

Started watching a little bit of Current. They appear to lend left; appear to be intelligent.

MSNBC is pretty awful. Chuck Todd and Richard Engel are tops in their field, I still watch Rachel Maddow (but not as much as I used to), and I can tolerate Chris Matthews in small doses. Their rogues' gallery, though - Ed Schultz, Lawrence O'Donnell, weenie Chris Hayes, Melitha Harrith-Perry, and Al "Why Did You Hire Him, What Were You Thinking" Sharpton, et. al. - are just as unstomachable. They're every bit as bad as most of FOX, in that they're only pretending to be news at all.

CNN if I have to watch everything. Honestly, I usually just watch the debate and then turn off the commentary. What I pick up is a combination of tomorrow's episodes of Brian Williams and Jon Stewart, and whatever I read in places like Real Clear Politics or Politifact.

Not a big fan of the talking heads.

I try to avoid both.

I'm pretty much straight CSPAN on debate nights.

The individual players are biased, but the larger organizations are packaged, branded and marketed. That's not bias, that's business.

CNN. I can't stand FOX anymore and I never could stand Madcow and that smug ****ing look on her face.

I've always stuck with CNN, they are as objective as one is going to find, imho.

I saw some commentary on both CBS and NBC, but most of what I've observed has been on chiefsplanet.com.

I thought as Republicans we have to wait until 11am tommorrow when Rush tells us what to think.

At this point it only matters what a relative handful in Ohio think.

Chuck Todd is a liberal hack. Is that what he tops in?

For Pure entertainment value, CSPAN before and after with the random half-drunk people calling in on the public lines to let everyone know what they thought.

None. Cable news is bad for your brain.
