    It is most certainly not and you have no basis to claim that it is.

    This is about as accurate as it gets. It just hurts some people's feelings.

    Of course I do. Any website that says CNN is reliable news is most definitely leftist.

    Maybe reading graphs is too hard.

    If you plan on debating data based on emotions and not refuting it with anything other than opinion it will be hard for me to take what you say seriously. When I can't take people seriously my sarcasm level goes up.

    I didn't watch the news nearly the whole time Obama was in office.
    I never watch CNN, MSNBC, (fake news); I watch FOX.

    Opinions are not data.

    If you bothered to look over the website they explain the factors that go into ratings and they align quite well.

    If you have similar data that supports your theory feel free to post it up.

    Ratings are subjective. Data is not.

    Again, maybe you should actually read how they do it.

    I looked at your link. The only "data" they use is surveys. Surveys and polls are in themselves biased. If they were accurate Hillary Clinton would be president right now.

    Ok, then I'll wait patiently for your source refuting their claims and the claims of all the participants that pretty much nailed what most people already know.


    Take your time.

    Ok, so I'll take a survey on GT. Which news is more factual, CNN or Fox News?

    Ding ding ding! Winner winner!
    That's exactly my point. Surveys / polls are all biased depending on who you sample.

    The original thread title should be just a bit longer.
    (insert a ‘that’s what she said joke’ if you wish) :p

    Has anyone else quit watching the news, and started watching more porn?

    ..and my source samples anyone willing to participate and did a very good job of showing where most media lands. You're just bent out of shape because Fox got a slightly less reliability rating than CNN.

    The big difference here is that I provided a site that shows how it was collected and why it's likely accurate and you provided me with nothing. You refute the claims with nothing more than opinion and nothing else to support your assertion.
