Most american news on the war has been propaganda crap. They should seriously rename foxnews to "the USA! USA! USA! network".

Who said that?

I heard that German TV was cautioning viewers to shield their eyes from Fox News.

That just makes me suspicious that Fox may be on to something or no one would care.

In order for a news source to not be biased about this, it must state the US is already in a quagmire.

There's nothing wrong with a bias . . . as long as the outlet is honest. FOXNews is head cheerleader for the war effort. I think the troops should watch it b/c they should believe all Americans support the war and they should believe the war is just.

The rest of the world should avoid FOXNews. NPR, BBC, and CNN are far more likely to produce a credible . . . yet on-balanced skewed towards the coalition viewpoint.

I don't believe that there is an unbiased Newsource reporting this war.

Your balanced sources are generally stating things are going badly, when in fact they are not. Read them all(including fox) and make decisions yourself.

Isn't it funny that the more a network tells us something we agree with the more "balanced" the coverage seems to be. ;)

Not me of course. I'm completely objective.

This is the only news source you need!
Yeah if you are a simple Minded Dittohead who likes having others do all the thinking for them. Newsmax, the Site for Sycophants!

Making a mistake does not constitute censorship asshat.
BTW a post like yours belongs in forum issues or you could PM the moderator directly.

NPR, BBC, and CNN all need to get a clue.......2 days ago when we were 9 days into a major war those networks had us 'bogged down' 'uprepared' etc. Fox News isn't perfect but it's still the best out there.

Anyone with a clue about the military...like myself....need only to listen to the ridiculous questions posed by reporters at the briefings to realize how uninformed the media really is. It is unfortunate that those 'uninformed' are tasked with reporting the news.

btw, love that news source mansnake

I'd take NPR off that list. They have a pretty pro-liberal bias. Pro-democrat, anti-republican. If you listen to them they also seem to be pro-Palestinian, anti- Israel.
