They're not overtly conservative, but they have cut back on a lot of coverage and generally 
back the official line, more than they ever used to.  And certainly more than when the official 
line was coming from a Democratic-controlled White House.

I can't speak about every program, but where Rush and O'Reilly blatantly lie, I believe that Al 
Franken is very careful to research his facts and get them right.  He even brings 
conservatives on his show and has discussions with them.  And while I think Stephanie 
Miller is a bit shrill at times (and may not be so careful to get the facts right), she takes pride 
in not cutting off callers who disagree with her.
