CNN Is Slanted, Not Fox
Editor: I no longer watch CNN. Likewise my sister. Along with many others. If I want to hear the news, I go to Fox. I no longer watch ABC, CBS or NBC or CNN ["Parsons: 'Crazy People' at Fox News," 8/9, page 2].
Those four [channels] only give the version of the news that they want us to hear. I prefer to hear all the news and then decide what I want to accept as fact.
I watched Clinton's [impeachment] hearings, then would listen to the CNN reporters give their version of what had been said only to find that they had twisted the facts. That woke me up to the realization that I did not want to continue with their version of the news. When my cable would not [offer] Fox, I left.
I would like to state that I still have the same opinions that I always had when I was considered a moderate.
I would vote for the person I thought was best, Republican or Democrat. Now I will never vote for a Democrat. They no longer are led by Democrats but by Socialists. Instead, if I do not like the Republican I just do not vote for that office. I never moved to the right, they moved the bar to the left.
Tell Mr. Parsons he had best wake up and smell the coffee burning.

Editor: Regarding your article in BROADCASTING & CABLE , you are totally wrong. Fox News is fair and balanced reporting. You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. You are not telling the truth. CNN should have its broadcasting license revoked. [It endangered] our servicemen's and -women's lives in Iraq in giving out exact positions during the Iraq war. CNN stands for the Communist Nazi Network. They are truly the enemy within. Fox News has been ahead of CNN and MSNBC combined. Stop telling everyone lies.

Editor: The Time Warner Chairman Dick Parsons is "crazy." CNN is very liberal. That is why I switched to Fox. You get both sides and not one side slanting to the left all the time. There are enough channels like ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR and PBS that are so far to the left I think I'm in France.

Editor: I read the article about crazy people exchanging views on Fox. The last time I looked, this was still a free country, and we don't get 100 lashes for disagreeing with the likes of Dick Parsons. (I knew there was a good reason not to watch CNN.)
