    I could easily. In fact, next week my family is going on vacation and during that time, I doubt I'll have any access to any major news outlet so I probably won't get any news at all. Certainly in past years, I've never bothered to seek any out, I'm there specifically to get away from it all.

    So I'll be about a week behind when I get back.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It wouldn't be a problem going without news for a while. It's all either bad news or leftist news. Either way, it's bad.

    2. America elected a foreign-born moooslim as President. (source: Fox News)

    3. Sarah Palin, not wanting to be outdone by the Octomom had six more kids. Names: Stix, Twig, Stem, Sprout, Root, and Chip off the o' block.

    4. Michael Jackson got even paler.

    5. Casual Fridays - now casual sex fridays.

    6. Texas secedes, but then gets invaded and taken over by Mexico.
    State Motto changes to 'Remember the Alamo, puto?'

    7. Global financial meltdown. side benefit: actually cheaper to stuff mattress with money than buy new mattress.

    8. Kosovo declares independence, as if anyone cared.

    9. Devistating earthquake somewhere on earth.

    10. A different bunch of politicians and sports figures get caught with their pants down, some for sex, some for steroid shots, respectively.

    I am less paranoid and more at peace when I don't watch or read the news.

    I just did. I went 12 days camping and out in a boat fishing and really did not care about the news. Several days into it got a news paper and read the news. I actually heard through the grapevine by overhearing a conversation that Palin had resigned. I find it easy to step away from the news but I also find it easy when I'm at home to listen to it all of the time. In one form or another.

    Easily. I could go months. (unless you count accidental news gathering by way of people just telling you stuff)

    I don't watch the news, ever. I hate it. And I don't read any papers.

    If you just mean "without any form of the news" to be purposefully seeking it out, then I could go a very, very long time.

    2 things,
    mumber one is that the news will happen with or without my knowledge of it.

    the other is a question...are we talking real news, or what the media spoon feeds us?

    No news is good news.
    Yes, I could go weeks in ignorance without any sort of news, but, I never have.
    If the news media would only improve a little, and stay away from trash( homosexuals,Jackson,lieing politicans??, so on and so forth) then my interest could be re-piqued..
    C Span could be an answer, but it moves so slowly, and is boring to me....
