    Multiple options available.
    PBS should be on there. The Newshour does a great job. Newspapers do a better job than TV overall.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Oh, in addition to Google News being a godsend...another (in my opinion) fantastic news aggregate application is Facebook's Paper on iOS and Android.Some pretty good categories with interesting stories and commentary will come up. It's been pretty useful in terms of getting stuff I would not have ordinarily been exposed to.

    That's a real shocker.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Where do you primarily get your news/information?
    i'm a bit of a news junkie, so i use a lot of sources. generally :

    breaking events : CNN
    balanced coverage of stories : blank google news search. this one is my favorite, because you get every story from every angle and slant. helps to dilute the bias.
    world news : BBC. sometimes NPR, as well.

    on top of that, i generally listen to NPR when driving to work and back, and i usually watch NBC nightly news.

    Nah....just enjoy how long it takes for the prospective candidates to formally announce their candidacy. It's always a fun game to me. We discuss each of them ad nauseum, but there's the fear that they run overexposed if they announce too early.
