    Where do you get your information?

    Network News?
    Cable News?
    Your local station?

    What about the internet?
    What sites do you visit to get your daily dose of current events and politics?

    USMB.

    I scour "The U" for snippets of Glennbeck's show so that I know what to think.

    Almost no TV news, but I do read a lot. I can't begin to list all sources I use online on a regular basis, but here are a few: NYT, CNN, Fox, WAPO, Quinnipiac Chronicle, The Atlantic, McClatchy, Drudge, WSJ. I also frequently read foreign press, including Guardian UK, the BBC, and al-Jazeera...and others. I also read a lot of blogs, not so much for news as for different perspectives on the news.

    You need to get out more xotoxi. And really, throw out the chalkboards you have set up next to your computer desk.
