When Laura wrote about this the other day, it prompted this thought from DM, one of our local yokels. He brought up that it’s almost impossible to get a well balanced source of information. Which lead me to wonder where most of us go? What or who do most of us turn to for our news and or information on things?
This is going to sound ridiculous but I listen to our local news at 11 AM. 12 PM, 5, 6 & 10. I don’t really listen too much of the world news. Unless something catastrophic happens, I tune that out. Paul and I will occasionally watch Nightline after our 10 o’clock news if there is something on there that interests us but we mostly watch things we DVR at other times.
I know A LOT of people who do watch cable news all day long and their televisions don’t change channels much. I do notice however that what channel you’re watching takes on a “tone” of “one side or the other.” I do feel whatever news you watch, you are getting the tone of the person delivering it to you. Don’t you think so?
My mom will say “so and so” only watches “this or that” because they are republican or democrat. Or way to the right or way to the left. Open minded or very old-fashioned and narrow-minded. Do you think this is true?
So my question is where do you turn for your news? Do you go online for it and if so, where? Do you watch your local news or the major news networks like Fox and CNN? Just where do you turn for your news?
