If anyone doubts that much of the TV news we receive on a daily basis is skewed far to the left, I would to point to the two most-watched cable news networks as an example.

I confess to being a Republican and a sports and news junkie, and although I watch Fox News more than CNN, I have always respected Wolf Blitzer. And who could ever forget the melodic sound of James Earl Jones’ voice when he said, “This is CNN”? But in general CNN leans far more to the left than Fox News does to the right. So what is my proof?

Liberals are always talking about free speech. Well, a number of the daily contributors on Fox News are liberals who are allowed to speak their minds freely:  Geraldo Rivera, Juan Williams, Alan Colmes, Bob Beckle, Kristen Powers, et al.

Who are the regular daily conservative contributors on CNN?
