Anything like CNN, Yahoo!, MSN or your local news? I personally don't. It's usually the same crap. Oh, boohoo, Timmy fell in a well in Idaho. Granted, I do see good things from time to time when I glanced at it. However, it's always covered with some serious stuff now adays. Anyone else here watch (or lack of) the news?

Notice: I think there's already a thread on this, I just don't know how to search for one. :/

Nah, I don't watch the news as I feel it's mainly bias reports and brainwashes people easily. Most of the time, the articles/reports often lack information and end up discuss minor issues.

Unless you count reading articles now and then, videos on YouTube on issues (I.E. presidential campaigns), then I do watch the news but in general, I don't.

yup, I watch the news, but no more than once a week, it gets to be tiring after a while; newser, online sources, hell, I even go on CNN.com from time to time.

News stopped being objective several decades ago. I noticed the shift in 1994 on NPR when this radio outlet went from informative to left-wing to radically left-wing venue. Likely by then I shifted from left-winger to the right so my perception of the said versus the unsaid became more pronounced re government sponsored/supported broadcasting via NPR.

Big 3 alphabets don't do decent broadcasting as far as I'm concerned but big 3 will do well 2012 selling political ad space to both political parties. Fox has become influenced by Murdoch's son who is more liberal thinking than the old man. I see their reporting becoming a little more centrist than right lately. I don't care for this outfit either, never did buy the bs of fair and balanced mantra.

I listen to many venues. Accept some of the yak-yak, discard the remainder. Heritage Foundation is representative of reporting I'd like to see more of over the airwaves.

I haven't had any tv service for 7 years. It's amazing how once you have to find out information on your own, that you realize what a waste tv really is. As far as news, I go to japantoday every once in a while. The other issue is that news sites and stations may have certain political views, so the news ends up getting skewed to their preferred view.

hm, well nowadays i've noticed that a lot of news is- i don't want to say biased, but is very...opinionated about everything. i mean i find that a lot of reporters have to add their two-cents in a story that isn't necessary. like 30 years ago they would just give straight facts and we could come to our own conclusions, now, it seems that they think the general public can't come up with their own conclusions, so they throw in their opinion, idk it makes me feel that i can't think for myself with all their input that isn't needed... maybe it's just me

that aside, i still watch the news despite all that, because i think it's good to know what's going on in our world- i don't think i should be ignorant either just because it seems all the news today is bad. but stories like "timmy falling down a well" are kinda pointless, just give me the important stuff. i find ctv is pretty "neutral" mind, you i live in canada so the news channels i get are different compared to channels like cnn
