A national poll has found that Americans prefer Fox News as the best television news network.

Poll Position, a new company set up by former CNN exec Eason Jordan, a 23-year veteran of the cable network, polled 1,180 people, with 36 percent picking Fox News as best, 28 percent saying CNN, and 17 percent choosing MSNBC.

Americans picked on partisan lines, too: 62 percent of Republicans picked Fox News, while 72 percent of Democrats chose CNN and MSNBC.

Fox consistently is one of the top five shows in all of cable, while its rivals usually sit somewhere outside the top 20.

This latest poll also confirms many widely held notions about the three networks' fan bases.

Fox' viewership skews Republican, white, and older. Sixty-two percent of respondents who identified themselves as Republican chose Fox as the best, as did 42 percent of whites and 46 percent of those past the age of 65. Fox was tops in every age group except those under 30.

Meanwhile, both CNN and MSNBC skew Democrat, young, and ethnically diverse.

Among those identifying themselves as Democrats, 40.8 percent chose CNN as the best, and 31 percent chose MSNBC. CNN also was the preferred choice of 35.6 percent of blacks, 45.4 percent of Hispanics, and 39.4 percent of respondents between 18 and 29 years of age.

MSNBC was not voted the best by any particular category, but it registered north of 20 percent among Blacks, Latinos, "Other," and females (not to mention Democrats).

They are all biased left. Fox is the least biased.

What we need is a 20/20 type show for all of the crooks in office.

I think all three are terrible. If one sifts through the fluff and fanfare one can find some news, but these networks spend far too much time telling us what our opinions should be rather than just giving the news.

I don't worry too much about that. It is easy to spot the left wing fluff from all these networks

It takes a lot of "research time" to be well informed, but I find the Fox clips I see on the "net" contain more fact and less emotion.

Watching MSNBC and CNN clips are emotionally painful.


Watching any of the opinion shows on MSNBC, like Maddow, Matthews are useless.

CNN used to be better when Dobbs was on, and he used to be respected by the "left" also, but since obama became President and he has begun speaking out, the "left" now considers him a "radical right wing extremist"

say hi to Mrs. Greg for me. Remind her that she flew off the handle for thinking that I called her a "liberal", when I did no such thing. she'll no doubt remember that one of the only times I every PM'd her was to apologize for the misunderstanding, after apologizing publically.


right after that is when you, OT, starting accusing me of sexually harrasing the women such as Mrs. Greg.

If I remember correctly, she left because of all the name-calling, false accusations etc. OT, you should be ashamed for chasing her away.,

The old leftwingernut socilaist is still at his childish games. I can see it after he has had it handed to him so many times he feels he has to snipe at the good people on Ranchers.

If anyone wonders who is on here they can come on and look, they wouldn't need to ask someone else. ot your drivel is getting more lame and childish by the day. Personaly it looks as most of the leftwingernut socialist crazies got all childish and pouted off

Somehow i doubt that oldtimer heard from MrsGreg, just more of his look at me postings!!! Just like he has yet to prove there was any harassment,,, just look at the proof he has offered to substantiate his claim NONE NOT ONE THING other than what he says, and we know about his lies !

He is always hearing from, running into,getting calls, from folks who SE HIM to take shots at the rest of the folks on here!! Losing more credibility all the time oldtimer, Stop embarrassing yourself......

Remember when he made the wild azz claim that other boards were talking about ranchers. Then when he was asked for the site he had all kinds of excuses not to give us the site. He never did post the site. Of course he can't post a site it was only in his imagination.

That is just another example oldtimers ""HEY LOOK AT ME" posts,
He uses them when he needs attention! He knows he does not have to offer proof, so he creates situations in his mind to justify the lies and accusations, for one oldtimer show us the proof

Sounds like her and Greg are doing good.....Just like me, their extended family keeps growing... And everyone is bracing for the tough winter everyone is calling for again this year...
And I too miss her on this site- but I don't think her return will ever happen while some are still on the site....

While she is a nice lady and has a heart of gold she is way to sensitive to handle mild criticism. I hope she is doing well.

To tell the truth, if she thinks we are radicals and especially thinks OT is clear thinking, I hope she never comes back.................................

I want no part of any conversation that refers to OT as having "common sense". Especially a Canadian......................................

Of course if he DID really have contact with her he had to tell her the most radical person this site ever saw is still here, namely oldtimer himself!
I feel for Mrs Greg if oldtimer is the best she can find to relate to, must be hell to be in that situation :D

Eh ole liar :wink: :wink:

I find it a bit hard to take any rancher or rancher's wife seriously if they don't believe in hauling a horse which is already saddled. :wink: Just kidding, Mrs. Greg. :)
