    Did anyone else see this on CNN?

    The Fight Over Faith
    "It is the fastest-growing form of Christianity in America. Some surveys say nearly 40 percent of Christians in the United States describe themselves as "evangelical" or "born again." What does it mean to be an evangelical in America 2004 and why is this brand of Christianity spreading so rapidly right now? "

    This was on again last night. Unfortunately, I found it as the closing points were being made.

    I never can bring myself to watch CNN they are so liberal. But if I had known that was on I would have watched it.

    The show takes a liberal stance from what I saw( about 20 minutes). I look at everything CNN does with a jaudiced view. They are liberal eletists.

    The only really biased network I've encountered is FOX. They claim to be fair and unbiased but they're anything but that. I don't watch them because they're so hypocritical.

    Oh my , ABC,NBC,CBS,CNN,MSNBC, are fair and balanced and Fox is biased.
    Fox is much more conservative than any of the above networks but not that much more.I suppose the New York Times is also fair and balanced.

    I should have added the BBC and National Public Radio, fair and balanced. Right.

    The only news I've ever seen that is obviously biased is FOX. It's so obvious it's laughable.

    After performing a search for this subject matter on the net, I came up with this piece from Baptist Press that predates the November CNN showing of "Fight Over Faith". The one at this link, dated 24 Oct 04 is either the original broadcast date of this same presentation or it is a different segment of the same topic.

    Fight Over Faith

    Indeed.

    I think you ought to give the BBC a bit more credit, you are probably right about all the others you mentioned (so is StraightAndNarrow when talking about FOX by the way).

    Oh I know that FOX leans heavily to the right, no doubt about it. So that gives us 7 to the liberal side one to the conservative side. I guess the gig complaint is that the conservatives would have a voice at all in Straightand narrows view.
