I mostly focus on local news, the local newspaper in my area is free and they have tons of copies at all the grocery stores so it's really easy to get a copy.
I currently don't have TV, just internet, so I don't watch any news channels but I do follow the CNN twitter and check out Huffington Post occasionally.

I watch no news. To me, the world is a gold tinted gum-drop palace that snows pure Arabian heroine and rains unicorn tears.

I don't watch/read/listen to the news. All of them are full of shit and just make me angry. All the knuckleheads blabbing about how fox is just a bunch of crazy, right wing gobledygook; most of the remaining american news broadcasts are a bunch of crazy, left wing gobledygook. If I ABSOLUTELY need look something up, I use the BBC website, I think they are closest to unbiased out of all of them.

I work in an office with the local radio station on all day. They talk about news, but it's always mixed in with some rubbish like "Doggie Weddings on Valentines Day!". I catch a few minutes of BBC Breakfast in the morning, but most of my news comes from other forums...

To be honest, I only watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I read news from a variety of sources, mostly Al Jazeera and Reuters, or straight from the Associated Press. Occasionally I'll venture on to BBC's site, and on the very rare occasion, CNN.

In response to some other posters here - I'm not going to boycott the news altogether. I think a lot of corporate stations are extremely biased, so I don't watch/read anything from them if I can help it, but there are decent reporters out there. If you think a specific report may be biased, locate that bias and discount it. That's all you have to do, and is, in fact, what you should do whenever reading an article. It's part of being an intelligent and informed member of society. I think it's rather irresponsible to not know what is going on in the world.

I get all my news from The Daily Show. I want all my tragedy with a large dose of bias and a great sense of humor.

Speaking of... It's Tuesday! Time to visit thedailyshow.com !

AM Radio and whatever I stumble upon on the internet.

I used to watch more network and cable news, but for the last year or two between Comcast On-Demand, Netflix, Crunchyroll, Youtube, Hulu, etc. etc. I can't even remember the last time I sat down and actually watched broadcast television.

I find using foreign news sources actually gives me a more unbiased (and interesting) view of US events than US news agencies. I mostly visit the BBC and Aljazeera. I also listen to NPR. For local news I visit the local newspaper's site.

I'm always skeptical when reading news and try to distill the facts by looking for common threads reported from various sources.
