Thanks,

Interestingly enough this is true for me as well. I figure if it's important, PWI will be arguing about it. But sometimes I do like to just skim through some articles of whats going on in the world and get it from varying sources so I can hold a semi-intelligent conversation with anyone if they go the current events/politics/news route on me.

This is my favorite method.

I've cut way down from my news junkie days. Now it's just the New York Times. Occasionally reason.com to remember I'm not alone.

Here is a counterintuitive thought: The less news one pays attention to the more informed one will be. In fact, just reading the headlines on any RSS news feed is more informative than actually reading the articles they link to. It should only take one sentence to report any news artifact -- who, what, where, when.

My biggest issue with news reporting is why we should care about some spot on the other side of the world that we have never been to. It's information overload. It is my belief that the instant availability of information has turned us into a culture of busybodies.

The news these days is not about reporting facts but rather about swaying popular opinion.

Mainstream news is the worst and should be avoided altogether.
