    The Economist is hardly conservative. I find myself agreeing with it more than just about any other news source. I'd classify it as center-left. I agree with you about the others though; those are good sources for intelligent conservative viewpoints.

    Nope, but I do read a conservative newspaper.

    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.

    I agree 100% and wholeheartedly. I had no say in the matter, however, since you were speaking my mind.
