    With all the political debate going on I thought it would be telling to find out what news programs folks enjoy most - cable, network, radio - whatever.

    For entertainment value I like O'Reilly.
    For pure news content I lean towards Jim Lehrer (if I can stay awake for the entire program).
    But for objective political debate I don't think anyone can touch Chris Matthews.

    I hate to admit it, but I never watch the national news on TV. With a one-year old and a three-year old I have turned to getting my national news on-line. I use to love watching ABC Nightly News. In high school I drove my brother crazy because I would watch Headline News for hours. He never could figure out why I would watch the same half-hour show over and over, and I could never explain why.

    When I can I like to catch some Tim Russert. I like his style and approach to interviewing. I cannot sit and watch O'Reilly as I think he is nothing more than someone who thinks the loudest wins.

    Yeah, I'm usually still at work when the nightly news hits. For a good laugh, I usually hit O'Reilly's show. The ignorance and stupidity he displays on a weekly basis all the while keeping a straight face while he says he's impartial make for some amusement after a hard day at work.

    cnn's attempts at providing a neutral discussion always get me laughing too.....3 established liberals and one conservative who can never get a word in.....when he/she does....they break for a commercial....

    suffice it to say....there is no such thing as an impartial media outlet.....or a single good source......

    me...i just sample it all and try to weed out the crap from the information....and form my own opinion after reviewing several sources....

    I too enjoy watching/listening to Tim Russert and also Tom Brokaw. Can't really say why with Brokaw but he just strikes me as being forthright and honest but I could be totally off base.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I like the NBC nightly news, and also Tim Russert on NBC. Other than that, I like Fox News. I like Hannity & Colmes, too.

    Rush Limbaugh calls it the "Clinton News Network". I think that's kinda funny, whether he's right or not.

    Or is it the "Clin-ton News Network", Tibor?

    The KSB 4-4-11/11-5-11

    Sometimes i watch BBC in the mornings, other than that I get most of my news from the paper.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand. Staff Member

    Does the Tonight Show or Conan OBrien count?? :biggrin2: Just Kidding. I once read a story on how some people do rely on them for news.

    I usually throw CNN on in the morning and stick to the paper like KSB. I'll watch the local guys every now and then but I miss them most of the time because I'm playing with the kids before bedtime or I'm at work.

    only watch the local late night news (11:00 news). They don't really cover anything national. I do skim the Dispatch in the mornings (sports, front page, and business sections), if I see something of interest I read the article.

    I think the "Today" show qualifies as a "News" show.

    Katie Couric is on the "Today" show.

    E'nuff said.
