I used to listen to NPR on my way to and from work but after I got XM, I listen to Bluesville instead. 74 on the XM highway. Have recently begun listening to 72, don't recall the name but it is some great, great fusion jazz. Mahavishnu Orchestra/Weather Report/Return to Forever/etc.

For commentary, I look to this site, primarily and secondarily at another site. Folks who post political/social opinion here are hardly worse than the overpaid pundits on TV, radio or in the papers and news mags. In many instances I have seen better reasoning here than by paid pundits, especially from folks whose opinions I oppose. A big plus online is the feedback -- ideas can be tested in the crucible. That is only partially true of traditional media. Does anybody think that Jonothan Alter or Rush Limbaugh give a poop what we think of their opinions? And given that those same opinions are often expressed here, it allows for rebuttal and testing of ideas.

I often watch MSNBC and FoxNews at lunchtime as I like Nora ODonnel (who appear's porking-up to Limbaughesque proportions, BTW) and I like FoxNews straight TV coverage. You can keep their op/ed folks.
Primary sources:
TV news FOX News
Online news The Drudge Report
Local news paper for local news
The only thing I like on MSNBC is Imus In The Morning!
NPR, like PBS, is a communist conspiracy!

Don't believe everything you think
