Who is your news source ?
 
Hearing alot of conspiracy theories these days about our news stations . If some of you pecker heads dont believe the main stream media where do you go ?

Who is telling it like it is with out sounding like a broken record ?

Reuters. As much as any of them.

Do not know that it is a conspiracy, just lousy, biased reporting from most.

NPR, BBC, CNN, and The Daily Show. NPR on my way too and from work more often than the others.

Fox for local news. My local fox tends to stay away from politics.
The Daily Show and Cobert Report for some politics.
You guys for the rest.:p

Really! The Daily Show and The Colbert Report as a primary news source? Come on guys, they are satire. Comedy Channel you know.

I watch them now and again. They will chop a video out of context in a heartbeat in order to get the applause line. It's funny, but not a primary news source. At least not mine.

I truley don't know if any of us are getting the news that really counts. Oh, the media will cover the politics of WashingtonDC from all different angles. That I believe is part of the m.o., watch this hand type of thing.

The only way we can get close to be being an informed individual is by seeking out multiple sources and types or information. That for me is cable channels, cnn, fox and msnbc. Talk radio and the websites from world news daily to the huffington post. Some left, some right, and some almost kooky.

Seems like all news sources have an agenda these days. If you gather from a variety, I think we may reap the truth in with a whole bunch of chaff. It's up to the individual to process witch is what.

To my point, remember the John Edwards sex scandel in 2008?
What "news organization" broke that story? It was the NATIONAL INQUIRER. They broke it months before the other networks picked it up. In a 24 hour news cycle, how does that happen.
