You wouldn't give the NRA money to study gun violence and expect an unbiased result, so why would you fund "studies" by groups like the Brady Campain and Violence Policy Center?
If they just requested the studies, but had no say in them, then yes to all, but that's going to have baggage. If any of them have any say int he studies then no. Anything these interest groups have influence over is going to be nothing but pseudo-science.
I don't dispute that Fox News is very biased. However, I think you're kidding yourself if you think other news sources aren't biased.
Fox is beyond biased. There is also a big difference between them and other news sources. MSNBC I would say is a better example of just being biased. Their actual news isn't too bad, but obviously their opinion shows have a liberal bias to open degree or another. CNN is mostly neutral maybe a tad to the right, but clueless and their quality has gone down. You also get the "moderate" fallacy nonstop, which only benefits radicals and crazies of all stripes.
ALL of those have a strong corporate bias though. Every single one of them. Fox is the worst because they run the company with an iron fist, but all the rest are still pretty bad.
Local news isn't too bad. Slight corporate or right lean sometimes though. Honestly there hasn't been a liberal bias since the late 1970's or earlier.
To get fair news you either need a raw story feed type thing like Reuters or PRN, or the BBC world news is also very good. NPR and PBS is the only thing hear free of bias and corporate influence. It doesn't seem that way to most people though because to them, corporate bias is normal. There is also the fact that anti-corporate liberals are the majority of the audience. So on the call in shows, there is a left slant, but it's from the callers, and not NPR itself.
The thing is, I don't always agree with the left or the right all the time. Both tend to start with that position, and then try to find ways to justify it. However the facts tend to be on the left more often than not. As the country has moved pretty far to the right over the course of the past 30 to 40 years (other than social issues), the perception of what is left is actually the majority of the political spectrum, so now even more facts end up going that way than ever before. So this can add to the perceived bias. Like global warming, evolution, and the big bang for example, or the things Republicans tend to say about the female reproductive system. Sometimes it ends up being verifiable facts VS demonstrably false nonsense.
