The is an off shoot from a thread that RevMitchell started. Here is a graphic I grabbed from the article he linked to in his post. This graphic shows where liberals and conservatives get their news. The further right on the x-axis the more conservative the person is, the further left on the x-axis the more liberal. Where these people get their news is indicated. I thought it would be fun for us to list where we perceive the media outlets themselves should be placed on the spectrum. That is, where on the left/right spectrum would you place CNN? NPR? FoxNews? etc. For this exercise zero is neutral and +10 is most conservative, and -10 is most liberal. I'll start. First off, MSNBC needs to be moved more to the left. As should CBS and Huff Po. Wall Street Journal and Washington Post needs to be moved to the right. As does Fox News. Drudge Report is tough to call. Since they are a news compiler service their bias is in the stories they choose to highlight. Anyway, here are my ratings. These rankings do not necessarily reflect the editorial department's position, instead it reflects the type and content of news stories and how they slant the news. There are some publications, like the New Yorker and Buzzfeed that I'm not familiar with, so they won't be on my rankings. -9.0 MSNBC, Al Jazeera -8.5 Slate, Huffington Post -7.0 The Daily Show -6.0 CBS News, NPR -5.0 Colbert Report, PBS -4.0 NBC News, BBC (though they change spots depending on party in power.) -3.0 The New York Times (still the best news gatherer), Bloomberg -2.0 CNN, USA Today -1.0 The Economist, ABC News, Google News, The Washington Post (currently my go-to first news read) 0.0 Politico (they're hard to pin down, so I put them at 0), Yahoo News +1.0 to +6.0 Drudge Report +3.0 Wall Street Journal +5.0 Fox News +6.0 Breitbart, Sean Hannity +7.0 The Blaze +8.0 Rush Limbaugh +9.0 Glen Beck What say you?
