My opinion- I can watch left leaning news and KNOW it leans left. And when I watch Fox news I KNOW it leans right. The difference I see is that left leaning news doesn't claim to be anything but left.. while Fox claims to be completely in the middle. "Fair and balanced," they say.

What are your thoughts?
