    ......major broadcast TV networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) do you consider to be the most conservative in their news reporting, editorializing, and overall entertainment programming? (You may have a different one for each of these categories.)

    Absolutely none of the choices offered. For any sense of conservatism or traditionalism in news reporting, Fox News is the one.

    100% liberal CBS in news and 90% CBS in program

    90% liberal NBC in news and entertainment. Very little redeeming value in any of their programs

    80% liberal ABC in news, but only 50% in special news programs (unlike uber-liberal CBS 60 minute). And maybe 50% in programs, altho ABC Family seems tied with Disney and heading down the "change society" path.

    NONE of these "reflect" culture or society; they all actively advance a liberal social agenda.

    Lifetime is so sickeningly women/liberal that I can't watch it. Hallmark, is often syrup-filled, but clean. :)

    BTW, add CNN to 100% liberal, Fox to about 25% liberal (esp in money). Out here in Mormon country, BYU network has excellent programing.

    Yes, if FOX were a choice, I would say that they're conservative - but I would also say they are clearly not telling the whole story either. There are very few places where you can get 100% objective news.

    If one had access, I would suggest BBC-America.

    However, given the choices, I guess I'd go with ABC as far as having some stuff worth watching.

    If those are my only choices, then I'd say ABC.

    But I'm not really sure I want my news source to be "conservative". I'd much rather just have them report the news.

    You did not read the OP - he asked which is the most conservative- if NBC and CBS are 1% conservative and ABC is 3 % - then they are the most conservative.

    Here is the OP
    (bold my emphasis)

    I see this happen quite often on this board as well as elsewhere - we do not answer the question. Could be we get that from our politicians.

    Now to answer the OP - I really don't know - I watch extremely very little network news -

    I see this often, someone make a charge against someone. I did READ the OP and I "interpreted" the intent to be which of the proposed networks to be more conservative....my response was NONE of those would I consider to have any shred of conservatism. Let me know if you are simply wanting....for some reason..... to pick a fight.
