GNU, GPL, Open Source Keith Curtis worked at Microsoft for 11 years, coding on Windows, Office, and at Microsoft's research department, before leaving the Redmond giant. Call it a revelation, call it giving in to the devil's temptations, but he's now a complete open source and Linux advocate, and in his new book, "After the Software Wars", he explains why open source will prevail against Microsoft's proprietary model.

If warmongering is sold as "Fair and Balanced", I wonder what real bias looks like.
Part of "fair and balanced" information is giving the context. Never in Fox history has the channel ever mentioned that Saddam Hussein was installed by the CIA, and that he killed democracy in Irak. Or has it been mentioned that the US and the UK killed democracy in Iran, by murdering Mosaddeq who was the elected leader of Iran. That kind of context is needed, to "balance" the warmongering.

Fox News is considered the most accurate:

The most trusted national TV news organizations, for accurate reporting, in declining order included: Fox News (27.0%), CNN (14.6%), and NBC News (10.90%). These were followed by ABC News (7.0%), local news (6.9%), CBS News (6.8%) MSNBC (4.0%), PBS News (3.0%), CNBC (0.6%) and CBN (0.5%).

In 2003, CNN led Fox News on “trust most for accurate reporting” 23.8% to 14.6%.

Well, if they say it, it must be true.
