Usually cause I leave the tv on after other shows and the news just comes on.. I really hate the news though sometimes, 80% of the stories are tragic, kids dieing, people dieing, teachers arrested for inappropriate behavior with students... Depressing

fuck the news it's all over dramatized garbage that intended to bring fear into American homes


02/16/12 6:32 pm

How can anyone watch fox Noise? It's illegal in Canada for lying.


02/16/12 6:31 pm

boogereatr. How is something that has no emotion gay? Gay means you are attracted to the same sex not a negative term. It's horrible people use it that way.

David00127 I have heard NPR, I do hear their news between programs I like. I completely disagree with you. They do not try to tell the whole story. And their non-news discussion programs are as far left as Glenn Beck is right.

Also, NPR, since they are non-profit, will often avoid polarizing, over-negative reporting, and exaggeration, and instead try to tell the whole story.

@2katz, I agree that NPR has some liberal bias, but what sets them apart is the fact that they do not enforce a liberal agenda, and whenever possible in reporting, they try to compensate for their bias.

If i want totally unbiased, just feeds you the news and think for yourself then i turn to NPR.


02/16/12 1:04 am

No. But I watch both CNN and Fox News to be an impartial viewer.

Rarely. Mostly check our 2 local papers online. For non-local, I check Drudge headlines, and flip around between the major news channels. Despite what people want to believe, Fox News usually has more complete info and panels of people arguing both sides of issues. Only thing I really ignore is PBS.

Not that I don't obsessively keep up with current events, but local news just brings me down most of the time.

With ohio you just have to be prepared for any and all weather showing up all in the same day. If you dont like the weather, just wait, itll change. No weather man necessary. Local news is crap though. The anchors act like the viewer give a rats ass about thier kids and husbands and stuff.


02/15/12 3:01 pm

I have the local stuff on in the mornings as background, while I check my emails (and SoH results overnight lol). It's also interesting to see how they guess the weather'll turn out. I joke that I want a job where I'M paid to be wrong...

If you want to be depressed, then watch your local news.

Surprising results. It's on while I'm getting ready for work every morning. A little local news and weather is important to know. Weather especially in winter in NE. School closings etc.


02/15/12 1:47 pm

I do, almost every day and I'm fiercely loyal to the local news on a particular channel.
