Need to know more about what's really going on in the world than what the next club is doing. How about a little more meat? It's okay...I have the drudge report & Fox news; but what about the rest of you?
So, why complain about the Daily Sun?

Some of the major news shows, such as Good Morning America have gone totally Hollywood or "Disney".......it's a huge gabfest with perhaps a few minutes of news here & there.
Good Morning America, was never a "news" show.

I don't know who it is and I don't care. But I also thought it was odd that a first post was a question that brings out a predictable emotional response leaning one way or the other. My advice is if you are new, swim around in the shallow end of the pool for a little while.

Remember when people only watched a half hour of news before Johnny Carson. If you added up the time spent on the weather report to the commercials maybe you got 15 minutes of news. I wonder if watching too much news is a little like eating too much ice cream.

Oh for heaven's sake.

Who, in the age of the internet, reads only one paper-printed newspaper to find out national and international news?!?!?!?!????

To me, that is lazy or wanting to be ignorant. Slimy as they are, you can be lazy and go to Drudge and Huffington Post and click on any one of 200 newspapers' articles linked at the front page!

That well may be true. But not watching enough of the news is like not eating your carrots.

I go from one extreme to the other. We have to be ourselves.

I get my news online from all over the place. I like to research and try to substantiate what is printed or posted. I tend to trust sites that end in .edu, .gov or .org. That's what we taught the kids when they came down to the library to do research. If the information comes from TV or a newspaper I will look up who owns the station or newspaper and then look up their background. All this takes time but at this stage in my life I find it gratifying. I never had that kind of time before. For now, I am living alone so I like checking in here for conversation. That's who I am.
