The major networks ABC, CBS and NBC are biased towards the status quo. The coverage, in general is fluff (News Lite). Some questioning of the validity of the war in Iraq was voiced, prior to the war, but as it started, all three networks launched into their "reality show" mode, dramatic music, fanciful graphics and clever themes. The overall tone was not simply reporting, it was a "them versus us" mentality.
AM talk radio is almost exclusively right wing. Clear Channel owns most large stations and features the same format on each. Our local Clear Channel broadcaster, KPNW, is news, sports and conservative talk - only. NPR and college radio stations are about the only radio source of any left of center viewpoints.
After dark, the choice opens up, with many distant AM stations available. At night, I may listen to KGO in San Francisco. Conservative talk during the day, liberal at night.
