Hey Catseye, try ananova.com for good offbeat news stories. It's a site from across the pond that can cure the daily news blues! :D

It will pass, it always does. Then I'll go back to watching CNN, C-SPAN and Jon Stewart's Daily Show, along with my two daily news mailing lists and my local paper.

Cats, I beliebe you and I walk the same path. Thinking of making a run for the border but cannot decide whether to go south since all of them are coming here or north to the cold country, you know up the maple leaf. I will PM you an opinion.

I read the local paper and watch the local tv news. Other than that, the national news is just plain depressing and pretty much just raises my blood pressure.

I also subscribe to Times and Newsweek. When the Man of the Year issue comes in, I'm going to burn it without reading it.

I have already replied here, but I did forget one I watch. OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting) has Jim Leherer and I love his news show, no commercials, so if I miss my local at 6 I catch him at 7. Occasionally I watch BBC and get Norway Post on the internet.
