Turning Off the Biased Broadcast Networks

This will come as no surprise.

More than 20 conservative leaders and media figures have sent a letter to the heads of the three broadcast networks and CNN, accusing them of rigging coverage to help re-elect President Obama.

Those signing the letter include radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin. They wrote: "To put it bluntly, you are rigging this election and taking sides in order to pre-determine the outcome." The letter was the idea of the Media Research Center.

It continued: "It's time the American people turn you who are offending off, once and for all. You have betrayed your trust." 

Many are turning them off, but enough still watch and are influenced by the way the networks cover the race. And they won't change because they are all liberals and liberals protect each other.
