Do you think the news media actually causes or contributes to the increasing divide between Republicans and Democrats, or do they just report the facts?

Are there any pro-Obama commercials on fox? There are on msnbc and CNN and the big three. I'd watch but fox but it makes me laugh too hard when I watch it.

Of course they fan the flames. The party breakdown illustrates it best. The media is biased to the left, and everyone knows it.

The wall street journal is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Everything that old lunatic owns is suspect.

There is definitely prejudice in media. But even if there was a completely unbiased station, people would interpret the news in a biased way.

Just about every network has a bias. CNN tries not to, but is liberal. The two worst are MSNBC and FOX though. Blatant partisan rubbish.

Lol our country is NOT retarded. The news lies like these made up politicians..like in that news movie about Mitt and his stupid choice. President Obama is really the president of the internet and doesn't even like politics. He's the funniest!!!!! ;D

CNN is heavy liberal, fox is conservative...the wall street journal is the best, although socialists hate it because they have a free market slant

Why is every one ripping on just fox? They all suck and are all just as guilty. Random people on the Internet are better at giving facts than all of the newscasters.

Look at the facts! America is broke. We need to cut back our budgets or well be paying huge amounts in taxes. The only person that has talked about cutting anything is Ron Paul.. Barack Obama and mitt Romney are way to shady to be presidents.

Looks as though the media needs to take note: The vast majority of Americans don't trust the media. I hope the majority, therefore, are not using the media to decide their options.

@gjb Every outlet I mentioned does have an editorial bias on their editorial board, but their coverage of the news is some of the best in the world. And I rarely watch MSNBC and Olbermann is as bad as Hannity.

@Responsible Just because NYT's editorial page and some of their columnists are liberal does not mean their coverage of the news is biased. That's one example of NPR's bias, and it was not even on air. How often do u listen to NPR anyway?

hasn't had a Cabinet meeting for how long? Thats what you get when you think you are the smartest person in the room.

Ishady really? That is exactly how the other side feels about this far left extreme President. Funny how perception is in the eye of the beholder. Where has his leadership been? Since 2010 he has chosen to hide and blame rather then get on the phone or have meetings with the opposition. Hell he

Drop the tea party and come in with your well thought out ideas and we will fix this country fairly for all concerned. Your hate for the left will not make us go away. We work together or nothing gets done. That is the way it will be.

This republican party if it were just about fiscal conservatism would be a good party. But this is not the republican party of even 5 years ago it is off the rails and being infested with an insurgency that is rotting it from within.

We need 3 non profit bipartisan committees to rank journalists (similar to a FICO score) on the basis of factual, non-biased reporting. EquiFACTS, Transproven and Experlyian. This score should appear in the lower right hand corner of the screen whenever they report on a story.

Fan flamers for sure. There's a reason the lunatics & extremists are interviewed & shown on TV (occupies & tea partiers) cuz they bring in ratings. What's deplorable is politicians play to the lowest common denominator to please them cus it's the only way to stay relevant & moderates get screwed
