    So my family got Foxtel again, so we have a great range of channels now.

    Of those, we get our usual ABC, which gives a lot of Left wing bias, but I am encouraged that we now have access to News Corp's Sky News and the infamous Fox News icon_wink.gif So that gives a larger perspective with a Right wing spin on it, moreso at least than the ABC icon_razz.gif

    So my question is, on account of most of the people here being American, what should I aim to watch to get the best stuff?

    The wondrous Bill O'Reilly has already been on, so he's one to watch. But what else is there?

    And to those who think they'll be clever and tell everyone how Fox News, News Corp or I am, I won't care, so yeah icon_cool.gif

    None of the above icon_smile.gif The goal of talk show hosts is the generate ratings... and frankly it gets a bit boring after a while (left or right - as you realize how impotent the people doing the talking are). Watch CNBC or read the Wall Street Journal - both of whom have a vested interest in getting the stories right vs spin because money is made up or down.

    My dad has pointed out the Wall Street Journal to me many times. I get a little detached from it, but I'll give it another go icon_smile.gif What little I have read of it has usually been good.

    Fox News caters to elderly morons with too much time on their hands and not a single original thought in their giant empty heads. Unless you are planning to die in the next few months, like the vast majority of the illiterate wind bags who Fox News caters too, I'd skip Fox for a more informational network, like the Disney channel.

    News does not have "spin" at all. The word you're looking for is "propaganda".

    The best news/opinion source that I've found, even over and above Fox News is Patriot Radio, channel 125 on XM Radio if you get that in Australia. I have no idea whether you do?

    Sean is on there along with David Webb (who I listen to nightly) Gary Bauer (yes, that Gary Bauer), Tom Rose, Glenn Beck, Breitbart News, etc.

    The Wall Street Journal is Fox News in an expensive suit.
