Re: “Fox, MSNBC viewers see the world differently” (TNT, 7-27).

Everyone knows that people who watch MSNBC and CNN are liberal and that most everyone who watches Fox News is conservative. The real issue is how the news is reported. Yes, Fox News does lean right, but MSNBC and CNN are both left. They report only liberal-left ideas and agendas, never offering a different point of few or opinion.

Every Fox News program presents both opinions so that the listeners can make up their own mind instead of having someone telling tbem how it should be. Fox News pits conservative and liberal talk show host, authors, reporters and celebrities head to head with the current issues of each day. Does MSNBC and CNN provide fair-and-balanced reporting? They give their opinions.

My question is, why are the producers of these two networks not sharing both sides of the issues? What are they afraid of? Do they simply think that the American public are too stupid to come to their own conclusions on the important issues in this country?

Those who want to hear all the national news, not just hand-picked news, and would like to see real people debate the hot issues of the day should turn to Fox News to get the whole story.
