    How Fox is allowed to call itself a "news" network is beyond me.

    I would not use "won my heart" but I tune in to CNN.. partly because I'm from Atlanta.

    None of the above. Both have their agendas, non of them gives objective news.

    They have produced some awesome tv shows though.

    Either way I would say neither: I am from the UK.

    BBC all the way!

    CNN. Fox seems to focus more on stories in the US.

    Fox here. As for agendas and views, that tends to be only after 4PM US EST.

    Well, not everyone is American, so I'll opt for ARD and ZDF. Not that anyone who isn't German has a clue what those are.

    As for CNN, I do get that channel, but I prefer the German news reports. They seem more balanced and have a much wider range of international topics.

    And Fox, well, don't have that, but they broadcast House M.D., so I have a soft spot for them.

    Isn't that kinda like choosing between cancer and AIDS??? Fox "News" may represent the bottom of the dung heap, but all the corporate media reek.

    I turned my TV off several years ago and seldom bother reading newspapers any more. Which isn't to say the news I get from the Internet isn't tainted, but there are more choices, from Al-Jazeera to an army of blogs. Heck, even Twitter made a name for itself via Iran, though Iran has apparently been trumped by Michael Jackson. Oh well...

    I have very little faith in ANY of the media, to be honest. All the pictures that have been faked by Reuters photogs, the AP stories that have NO backup, the CBS memo disaster.....

    Even growing up in Kansas, I found Fox to be a little too pro-conservative :P

    I prefer Fox over CNN partly because of Bill O'Reilly.
