    I assume that you're you referring to the Canadian station? There's 3 Sirius XM channels for Canada. The Canadian channel that I listen to isn't a French speaking station...so if Radio-Canada is French...then I've unknowingly learned a new language.

So I get my news pretty exclusively from the internet which is to say usually Google News aggregation of articles related to a term I search or just the BBC news app in the morning.

    I'd also say I'm not that atypical of people my age that I know. In fact I'd say its rare for me to run into someone my age who watches CNN, FOX, MSNBC except those who watch certain shows or commentators.

    With all of the passion about which network is more biased or best it got me wondering if even unscientifically I could find out if there was an age gap on this on DP.
    I have cnn.com as my home page, I trust their weather reports, obituaries (not on bin laden, but in general what celebrities died etc.) stuff like that
    For in depth coverage of events, I rely strictly on my own search on places such as google, which I also frustratingly understand is being taken over by the establishment slowly but surely.
    I'm 40

    I stick to Centrist news sources like MSNBC, Huffpo, CNN, and bloomberg. I avoid biased sources like Fox news, CNBC, FBN.

    MSNBC and Huffpo are centrist in your view and un-biased?
    CNBC is biased?

    Okaaaaay....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm 32 and haven't had cable since I was 18. I Do watch the news hour, from time to time. But for the most part it's all internet based

    Oh sorry, I looked into it and you listen to Radio Canada International which is in English and other languages apparently but in Canada, Radio-Canada is the French network of the CBC.

    I get my news from a variety of places, mostly online because that's where I spend the majority of my time. In the car, I listen to 100% talk radio, but since I'm not in the car often, that's a very small percentage. We haven't taken a physical newspaper for nearly 20 years and I haven't watched a regular televised newscast in probably close to that long. There's no reason not to get it online, you get information almost instantly and have a wide variety of sources to pick from.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I get what I want online, tuning into Fox, CNN, MSNBC, or any of the networks gives me a negative attitude that I don't need or want.

    I get my news from publicly owned TV station and newspaper. Once in awhile I listen to radio news programs. I'm 58 years old.
