Nah, that enters into this thread. I am aware of US news atrocities, yet I have been sans cable/stellite/network TV for over 4 years now.
I seek multiple news sources from teh internets. I actually find that participating in/reading fora in which folks discuss news tends to spur an info-seeking mission in me. I often abuse Google to find as many viewpoints as I can before I grow lazy and slightly apathetic. (Apathy sets in MUCH faster with the unadulterated aid of TV, so I think I'm doing well)
