PBS and NPR are the worst offenders of the group, when it comes to liberal bias. The NYT are a close second.
You, like everyone else, have your favorite. It's your favorite because it corresponds to your views.

I'm far more worried about lazy, slipshod, superficial journalism than I am about political bias or even commercial bias, to be perfectly honest.

I am interested in what people think makes the majority of TV News 'Liberally biased' when the way crime is reported, on all stations, constitutes a 'Conservative' bias. Further, All the channels have been relatively soft on Reagan, Bush and Junior yet focussed an enormous amount of attention on Clinton and a stained blue dress (did anyone else find it creepy that Monica never washed that dress...?). If the Liberal bias, as the term is usually applied, existed wouldn't Reagan and the Bush's have been given a hard time by the media and Clinton left in relative peace?

They all have baises... Just as we all have baises...
And of course the bias against us easily out weights the bias towards us...

American TV news is pronouncedly liberal, if viewed from within, Fox being a mild and not terribly dishonest exception (nobody here screams much about the CNN "Nerve gas in 'Nam!!!" stories). Externally viewed from Europe (and perhaps some South American areas), it is so far right as to be laughable. For the mideast, the liberal nature of even Fox must be nothing short of horrific. I can only imagine what it would be considered from other areas.

Horror of horrors, I agree with merv.
On both the slant around here and the fact that Fox is no more biased than CNN, just biased in the opposite direction.

Commercialism in the news is a separate concern, and while it bothers me the above bothers me much more.
