    BBC World news and BBC News America but if I want  to get the poop on what's  happening in my community I have a beer with the boys at the Rod and Gun tavern. Cheer!

    Do you watch it every day? And for how long?

    Pretty much ever day but I record them and usally fast forward  through the things I'm not interested in so 10 or 15 minuets of each half hour show. Cheers!

    Congrats on your ability to stay positive with so much exposure to it! 

    I'll watch documentaries on subjects that pique my interest, but I can't stand watching or listening to the news. I work too hard to stay in a positive mindset and it brings me down. If anything, I wish I could purge most of the 'news' that I've already learned in my life!

    I do get something emailed to me from one source, but I haven't read them in a long time. Just more junk in my inbox I don't care about. So annoying, really. 

    I've seen CSPAN on occasion. Pretty dreadful, to me.

    I like CSPAN in the mornings on the call in program.

    Lots of different sources online and a ton of common sense. This post was edited by Zack at May 18, 2021 12:57 AM MDT

    I guess I see things pop up on my home page that I notice once in a while, but I usually don't look further. The big news is always bad news, and I don't need to hear it. 

    Common sense doesn't keep you in the know, though. I have common sense about some things, better than common about some things and uncommon in a not good way about other things. Same as most of us. :)

      It depends on whose turn it is that night on the rotation, and whatever she decides to whisper to me . . .

    Seriously, I’m such a non-fan of what masquerades as “journalism” these days that I stay away from mainstream sources due to their primary quest for ratings (profits) and their disregard for simply reporting facts.

    I hear ya. I'm so aware of the tactics used to inflame and enrage and it repels me. I'm awake, not just 'woke'.

    I've wondered if I'll become more interested again at some point in the future. 

    That's a pretty wide variety.

    You can't depend on just one news source if you want to know the full story.

    Primarily The Guardian also Global, CBC and the Vancouver Sun and Province and the Onion. I google 'Trump New' daily where I can click on many various sources. I don't have TV. Forums 87 is a good source too.

    The local TV news to see who was shot, and the weather. I have been disregarding the evening news, both local and national. No on-line news. I really don't care what is happening anymore.

    I just don't watch. I've tried to resume and immediately start feeling negatively and I'm just not doing it. I have a couple of  people in my life who accept it and respect it, and they do tell me about some REALLY important and pertinent things. 

    I know there are many people who don't understand why I don't want to stay more informed and think I don't care (not true) or think the 'right way', or don't get all in an uproar about the ""disaster de jour". I can understand that perspective and have been there myself. I now realize that becoming overly emotionally involved about EVERYTHING isn't productive; for me, at least. I'm directly involved in being responsible for the wellbeing of real people every day, and if I'm emotionally exhausted by the horrific things that go on every day in the world around me, I can't be effective. It's counter-productive for me to focus too much emotional energy on things that I have no or very little control over.

    ABC (Australia, not the American one). Akin to PBS in the States, it occasionally gets it right because it doesn't need to sell advertising and thus doesn't need to appease corporations.
    The Guardian and The New Daily online. 80% of Australia's print media (all of it in my hometown of Adelaide) is NewsCorpse, ie Murdererdoch. Anyone who believes anything printed in a Rupert rag might be interested in buying this bridge I have for sale. It used to be right-slanted journalism, now it's outright neo-Nazi propaganda. He also owns FOX in the US. Same deal.
