Is it only on the internet? Or do you just watch it on the tv? Or do you just like reading about sports for example? I like to know if anyone here is actually watching tv news anymore tbh.

I go to Google and click news, also I go to digg for fun news, and I listen to a lot of npr in the car. That's about it.

I like to catch the news on tv, see what the powers that be have cherry picked for us to see. I sometimes flick through the papers, and I have news stories that pop up on my tumblr.

I would usually use TV as a jumping off point to look up the news on subjects I'm interested in online, but I've been lazy this summer and have fallen out of touch with much of the recent going-ons (for lack of a better word).

Mostly just online publications of different newspapers and magazines, but I listen to NPR on the radio occasionally as well. They also have older copies of the local newspaper for free in my college library, and since I spend a lot of time there, I like flipping through it to see if there are any interesting tidbits of information that I hadn't read or heard of yet.

So no no video's or podcasts?

Not really. I don't watch TV news because they're always like 6 hours behind the internet (my first source). The only podcasts I listen to are music related.

Usually only the news on the Internet, and mostly financial news at that (I'm an avid investor). I'll watch local broadcast news some days, mostly for the weather forecast.

I read news, predominantly. It's just more information dense than TV and radio, as I can spend 20 minutes reading Reuters or CNN and get as much information as I would acquire watching several hours of television.
