Just News!
4 May 2011 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Just news! Sometimes CBC News The National is great and other times awful. I can only watch The National in bits and pieces. Sometimes, I find some of "The National's stories unbiased, factual, and honest. Other times the left leaning The National has stories with bias, and leaves out facts which can create sensationalism. This is a problem which faces all news channels from Fox News to CBC. I like news where one views both sides of the story, and avoids name calling. Depending on one's views either the news is great or awful. I give The National a 6 out of 10. Some news stories are 7 or 8s, while others are 3 or 4s. My wife prefers to watch either global news or ctv's news.
