Comments: Where's The News?

It seems to me that anyone nowadays who is serious about the following the news does so by reading blogs. The world increasingly divides into two parts: people who are informed, and people who are not informed. The people who are not informed either read or watch no news at all, or what news they get comes from the television.

At least, they do it by reading on-line, even if not mostly or always blogs.

BB (before blogging), I got so much of my daily news from NPR that I rarely thought of television "news" outside of the context of weather reports or the occasional interesting local story.

Sitting and listening to the "national news" that one evening, I was simply appalled. Not only that 60-90 seconds' coverage now sounded like an "in-depth" report, but by how careful the station was not to give offense, not to mention anything in either story that might cast doubt on whether all was as it appeared to be on the surface.
