Fox definitely leans to the right, and Glen Beck has probably gone over the top or is having a nervous breakdown. But O'Reilly's show is the best of all the channels, and he is the only one who consistently debates those who disagree with him, often vehemently.

By contrast, Olbermann's show is sixty minutes of bashing Bush, Republicans and Conservatives and never a word from those of you seeking fairness. How about Chris Matthews and Olbermann being fired from their election-week coverage they were so politically partisan? Of course they wear it as a badge of courage, like being on the Nixon enemies list. When they should be ashamed for what they tried to do, they just say "the end justifies the means."

Why are The Ed Show, Countdown and the Rachel Maddow show any less partisan than O'Reilly, Hannity and Beck? And why doesn't their bias bother you?
