I don't know which premise is more ridiculous, that MSNBC is more biased than FOX "News," or the idea that FOX is the only outlet for conservative views. First, MSNBC is counter-programming to the per-existent FOX, and you can't tell me that a channel with a former GOP Congressman running a daily 3-hour show is more left-leaning than FOX is right-leaning. And secondly, conservatives have virtually the entire AM-spectrum to themselves, with hundreds--if not thousands--of hours per week dedicated to arch conservative views.

So, in addition to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Michael Savage and their countless compatriots and also-rans, there is FOX "News," FOX "Business," CNBC (c'mon, watch it some time), and a very skittish so-called "liberal media" terrified of being called that. You get MSNBC and CNN often putting "balance" into a story by trotting out the Family Research Council or American Family Institute for their counter opinion, even though those are hate groups. You've got Meet the Press, Face the Nation, FOX "News" Sunday, This Week, State of the Union and other national political talk fests, all of which are heavily skewed to the right (check their lineups). And the right needs yet another outlet? Okay then, go ahead and try it. I'd love for someone to take a bite out of FOX. But be warned. Ask Kelsey Grammer how his RightNetwork worked out.
