Do you listen to, watch, or read political media and if so, what?

I do not. Well, I guess you could argue that anything was a political medium, but. . .

not really. i flip through channels and if something catches my eye then i watch it. the only that I watch with some kind of regularity is the british house of commons. i hope thats the name.

i like watching the british form of congress handle goverment business the way it should be done. i have seen our congress and its pitiful. people are sleeping or reading newspapers, or talking amongst themselves in the background. the person speaking just runs on and on for the sake of talking. there is no discussion from what i have seen and its sickening. i had heard about this from other people but i didnt believe it. well i have seen it and its sad.

the british are way cool about it. when someone is talking they are all listening and responding. they even do that grumbling sound that was used in the old cartoons about this stuff. i love watching it because its so fast paced and everyone is involved.

i do read the news daily over the internet and i have a radio morning show that i listen to and they are very informed and believe in properly informing their listeners competely with all
sides of the story. all of their information is researched and then presented and the listeners get to call in and the discussions and comedy begins. rob, arnie and dawn in the morning on 98 rock in sacramento. i love you guys.

I used to listen to Rush Limbaugh on occassion, but haven't for a couple years. Other than that, I don't pay much attention to all the political jargon going around. I do notice the media's fixation
with announcing when a "republican politician" does something wrong, but if it's a democrat that screws up, it's always a "local politician".

I get Newsweek Magazine and check the news on the Internet.


The only political stuff I watch, besides CNN, is Inside Washington...I don't like the MacClaughlin (sp) Group...because they are so rude...I mean, just because you disagree with somebody, let's not forget good manners...

I watch CNN and get some political news from the NY Times online, if that is what you mean by political media.

I read three weekly and two monthly magazines that deal with current affairs. I also browse several on line sites covering political news.

I use NPR as background noise on long drives. I do pretty good during "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me," their current events quiz show, but I can't quite pinpoint where I'm picking up the answers from.
