My Thoughts on the News

An excellent article about stories that the mainstream media missed or underreported:

I highly recommend it. I’m no fan of the mainstream media, particularly network television. I actually don’t even own a tv anymore and I watch all my media on my computer. I rarely read newspapers or news magazines. I tend to get my news from aggregators like news.google.com, which allows me to select the categories of news that I want, and avoid the “junk-food news” that has absolutely no bearing on my life.
