Ok, this isnt really a very important topic but I was interested in how people on here get their news.
I used to watch and read CNN, quite a few years ago but I got tired of their love affair with the Democrats, so I switched to Fox "fair and
but they were just as bad as CNN, just the opposite, trying to force their ultra-conservative views down my throat.
The Network News stations havent even been a consideration for years so I wont even discuss them any further.
First of all, I dont want to be told their opinions and sure as hell dont want them to tell me what my opinion should be, there job is to report ALL
of the relevant news without a slant, or it used to be anyway.
You know its getting bad in this country when there's a war going on somewhere or there's some other type of very important incident going on and
the TOP story for the days is what celebrity just got a boob job and how big their gonna be.
I remember reading my moms Enquirer magazine as a kid because it was entertaining, not because I believed the stories but now it seems that you can
open up the Fox website and read everything, there that one would used to only find in the tabloids.
There is one sight that I do like though and that is Rense, yes I realize that some people on here consider it a "tabloid site" but that isnt the
case in my opinion.
Rense is more of a clearing house for stories, they add many stories to that site and give ME the option on what to believe and what not to.
Some stories link to reputable sites and some, though humorous, link to ridiculous sites but its up to me what to believe or not to believe and I like
that level of control.
I know how passionate some members here are against Rense but this post isnt about that site so please dont let it dominate any discussion that may
arise here because what I hope to gain here is information. I want relevant news that is reliable and truthful, back up by facts, not just the
I would just like to know where people, not just in the States but from all over the world get their news and if they could pass their wisdom on to me
