Times have changed. My grandfather still reads the paper daily and watches the evening news. I read many different sources on the internet and sometimes listen to news on PBS and BBC.

Where do you get the majority of your news?

NPR, PBS, BBC and MSNBC (in small doses) and newspaper websites

My friends (ie. the phone). They may be biased, but they're informed and biased which makes them better than most newspapers :)

I think he meant American news, Chip.

NPR (morning and evening), BBC (when insomnia strikes overnight) are my main sources for the news.

CBS evening news is on while I'm fixing dinner.

Newspapers on weekends, but not for news, for the most part.

The New Yorker, Time

Enquirer online for Reds (plus RedsZone)

Huffingtonpost.com for political blogs.

I get them it from numerous places...the web (CNN, BBC, various blogs), newspaper (Washington Post, NY Times) and NPR, on days when I drive and am not rocking out on my way home.

MSNBC--("Countdown" is one of my favorite programs--and no, I am not a liberal)

The 'Net. I rarely watch TV news. I probably read the paper more than I do watch the news on TV.

I gave up on "the news". I don't get a newspaper anymore (used to get 3), I don't get any magazines outside of sports, I don't watch any TV news stations.

No news is good news. :)

Generally I follow enough links online to places that I have a good idea of what is going on and why.

In no particular order, I get news from the internet (both several blogs and various internet news services and internet versions of traditional media), The Wall Street Journal, my local paper (solely for local news as its national coverage is a bad joke), several news weeklies/bi-weeklies, talk radio if I am driving, on occasion TV (but I only watch the traditional evening news programs about every three months or so).

I try to catch NPR whenever I can. Everything else seems all Anna Nicole (or whoever the celebrity/media sensation of the moment is) all the time.

I rely on the town crier myself.

Don't you get tired of having your country bashed hour after hour? We make mistakes but I sure don't think we're the devil that Olbermann makes us out to be.

Yep. It's why I don't listen to O'Reilly and Limbaugh.

Those guys don't bash the USA like Olbermann does. In fact I can find little in common among the three.:confused:

I typically avoid all three.

Yep. That's why I prefer to get my news from someone who only sings our country's praises...










John Cougar Mellencamp! :p:

This is OUUUUUURRRR COUUUUNTRRYYYY...

Well, now we're both confused.

I would respond to this appropriately, but I fear it would get this thread banished to the Peanut Gallery.

It sure is, so you sure as heck better not criticize our country or our government. That's just un-American.

We buy the NYT on the weekends. I read my local rag every morning, either in paper or online, whichever I happen to get to at work.

I listen to NPR in the mornings, and the local AM station once in a while.

I have a few feed searches set up for work related stuff.

Like others, I get mine from numerous sources. I haven't watched any of the mainstream nightly news shows in over 20 years.; but I bounce around from CNN, MSNBC, and Fox.

I read the newspaper daily. I usually take it to work with me. And I also like to read many on-line papers.

And I like watching The O'Reilly Factor and 60 Minutes. I'm smart enough to be able to show discernment on the material being disseminated. :mooner:
