The New Yorker Admits Fox News is More Balanced than MSNBC
Made popular 100 days ago in
According to The New Yorker’s Kelefa Sanneh, who for 8 years was a critic at the New York Times, profiled MSNBC and found that “Conservatives are far less visible on MSNBC than liberals are on Fox News”. And not only is MSNBC less likely to have Conservatives on their shows, but when they do, they tend to be Republicans who talk trash right-wingers.
Sanneh had this to say about Phil Griffin’s show:
Virtually every other show [aside from "Morning Joe"] belongs to hosts who unstintingly support Obama and the Democrats, with only minor points of disagreement. ([Host Chris] Hayes criticizes Obama for his drone killings and surveillance programs, and often conducts friendly interviews with Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who collaborated with Edward Snowden. Melissa Harris-Perry, who appears on weekends at 10 a.m., nearly always defends Obama, and called Glenn Greenwald a “jerk.”)
Conservatives are far less visible on MSNBC than liberals are on Fox News, and the right-leaning guests who do appear are typically critics of the conservative movement: Steve Schmidt, the Republican strategist, who says the party is too tolerant of “nuts” and “kooks”; Josh Barro, an advocate for Republican reform who describes himself as “neoliberal”; Abby Huntsman, the daughter of failed presidential candidate Jon, who has described the G.O.P. as a party of “non-inclusion.” The over-all impression is that your average Republican or conservative is simply too fanatical to be part of polite discourse.

Do liberals want to hear different opinions?
Lean to yes
Lean to no
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

Liberals are NEVER willing to hear ideas in opposition to their own. They run totally on emotion with no regard or respect for opinions of others due to their egotistical opinions of their own infallibility.

Just like Republicans... That's why there is no progress in this country. BOTH sides always pretend to have all the answers and both sides refuse to cooperate with the political opponent and both love to blame the other guy.
