Best Political News sites/News shows

I couldn’t decide what section this would be best in so moderaters if its better suited to another sections, please move appropriately.

After after reading this thread about John Stewart, Crossfire, and the role of media in politics, I got to wondering if there are any hardball news sources that ask tough but fair questions and don’t let politicians off the hook. Where are the media stations that serve the public first and foremost? I’d appreciate any websites or even broadcast/cable news show recommendations.

I like Hardball best. They seem rightist from my perspective but they’ll ask the hard question of anybody. Ron Reagan does an excellent job of representing the left, as I watch and listen and see how smart he is, I can’t believe he’s Reagan’s kid.
