    Where do you get your news?

    It's increasingly difficult to get reliable and objective news for a variety of reasons. Increased competition from cable and internet sources has led to increased pressure to succeed. There is an overall decline in journalistic standards, partially due to blogs but also amongst traditional newspaper and TV sources.

    The end result is that it is more and more difficult for the average person to get accurate and fair news. Many people aren't interested enough or don't make the effort to get the truth.

    The result is people that believe that Barack Obama is a muslim or that Sarah Palin banned books in Alaska.

    My strategy is to review a variety of news sources and to avoid making judgements based on blogs, word of mouth, annonymous sources, or committed right of left wing ideologues.

    What news sources do you rely on and which ones do you mistrust?

    Does MSNBC even do hard news? Every time I surf it they have a left-wing ideologue on there doing commentary/opinion.
