    I used to. Not so much any more due to time issues(I don't got enough of it), but I will still catch Bill O'Reilly occasionally. His humor works for me.

    I'm not a liberal (although that label has been applied to me many times), but I definitely take in news from sources that don't sing my tune -- including both Fox News and CNN. Doing so both allows me to test my own views, pick up additional ammunition for responding to the opposing view, and stay sharp in general.

    As an apatheist, I also listen to a lot of born-again Christian radio (a combination of opinion shows, question-and-answer shows, sermons, and the occasional 3-minute SRN broadcast) for essentially the same reason.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Apatheist? You don't care if there is a God or not? If that's your stance, why just Christian talk radio?

    Can't get much more honest than that.

    One of the hosts on the my favorite news-talk station was a Mormon. His show was mostly about local politics and the issues of the day, but I greatly enjoyed the occasional ingots he let slip -- right up until he publicly disagreed with a few positions held by the church and got booted.

    I'm not a conservative, so I suppose they would label me as a liberal, but I don't watch Fox News to get the other side. If you ask me, Fox News is actually extremely bad for getting the other side out. I think that too much of their journalism is accusatory and fear-based and just plain nasty. Also, I don't like the visuals on the screen - there's just WAY too many things to look at at one time and so I find it extremely distracting.

    I watch MSNBC, and one of my favorite shows on there is "Morning Joe." I like it so much because it isn't accusatory or fear-based. The panel gets together and they calmly discuss issues together and with others. They treat everyone well, conservatives and liberals both. Also, Joe Scarborough considers himself a conservative and was elected into Congress as a Republican back in the 90's, so I think his views are conservative even though they may not be dogmatic (which is why mainstream conservatives may consider him a RINO instead).

    (And just for the record, the only other MSNBC shows I really enjoy watching are Chris Matthews and Laurence O'Donnell but that doesn't mean I agree with them all the time.)

    As for getting conservative news, there's a local AM station I enjoy listening to when I'm alone at work. I listen to it because it's one of the few talk shows I can get on the radio. A new show started at mid-mornings with these two guys who lean conservative but they are rather more laid back about things than mainstream conservative pundits, which is why I like them. Also, I've tuned into Lou Dobbs when he airs in the afternoon. I've seen his television show when he was on CNN and I never much cared for it. However, I think he's wonderful on the radio. I think the difference is that when he's on TV he's alone and giving out his opinions whereas on the radio he's talking to and interacting with the audience. I don't agree with most things he says, though, but I do admit he's a good radio personality.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I watch Fox on occasion mostly for the entertainment value.
