LOL! Did you just link to Zeitgeist? Prepare to face some feedback.

All News Networks DO distort the truth, but stations like MSNBC and FOX are particularly good at it.
Wrong. MSNBC and FOX are actually the worst at it. They are more visible at it, as compared to CNN.

Somehow, this kinda gets back to what I said last year. We need a national news organization that presents everything like the "Federal News Network".

And Ringleader... fell for the Zeitgeist crap?
That hurts. That physically hurts.

More visible news distortion equates to more existent news distortion?
Seeing as they are competing with each other, then I doubt one news party would somehow be any less distorting then the others.
