    Watch more than one news network.  Read more than one newspaper.  Read a different news magazine every week.  Watch NPR on a regular basis.  Their news coverage has been found to be the most factual in a variety of academic studies.  And don't trust any of them to make up your mind for you.  Do the work.

      Kathleen, NPR is about as close as I get to trusting, even they sometimes botch it.

    The best part of the Dallas Morning News, which I read daily - are the letters to the editors. I read those before I read anything else. Why? Because so often they are persons writing in to dispute what was stated in another article written by one of the professional, and often, nationally syndicated journalists.

    It's good to hear what the highly literate public have to say about the mainstream big shot journalists and their work. You wind up getting lots of perspectives by reading the letters to the editor.

    It's difficult to understand the exact news by any one perspective. There are different thoughts as far as the social and political issues are concerned. So, it's better to read more than one newspaper or go through the news on the internet and there you will find all perspective of that. And then use your mind over it.

      Maitreyi,
      I agree. But, there is so much noise for the media. It would be nice to just turn it off.
