Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

I used to watch fox quite alot, then I switch to msnbc and say "whew, it's not a dystopian psychotropic hell state!" Thank god.
Nope, but I do read a conservative newspaper.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
I watch O'reilly two or three times a week. Can't watch Beck or Hannity or Van Susterin (sp?). I sometimes watch their daily programming but it's not often that I get to with work and all.
I don't watch and news channels anymore. Its faster to get the news from the internet. I tend to go with Google News. I have gotten to the point where I believe that news networks (all of them) are a major source of our problems in this country. In their pursuit of outrage to drum up audiences and ratings, they have gotten people to the point where they are fighting boogieman over real issues. This misinformation (through characterization of one's opponent, selective information, and substituting perspective for fact and truth) is what we act on, over real facts.
What we need is in depth analysis and understanding. Not people who shout soundbites at each other and oversimplify issues.
