I don't read or watch the news. Rely on twitter and forums to know anything. If it's that important, people will talk about it.

I read the Guardian and the Daily Mail to get a balanced centre view.

Pretty sure at this point even I could get a spot on CNN or something if I started spouting conspiracy theories about Russia.


Provided your occupation is listed as "activist" on social media, of course <roll>.

BBC <whistle>


<roll>. I wish I liked it. I get pissed off with the BBC because it really should be the best source for news in the country. Instead it seems to me to be slower than most other places at updating the stories, the writing is way crapper than most other places, the investigative journalism is poor to non existent. And because it pretends to be unbiased, when it isn't, it feels less trustworthy as well.

I've just read an 'article' on the BBC website that was 75% embedded tweets and was about some game show and a door.
