Cable news to remind me how blessed I really am.

@Cruiser: “It’s impossible to be happy with…‘Cable news to remind me of the pain and misery humans inflict on each other’ was my take when I canceled cable about, hmm, 1999?

ibstubro's avatar

Not had a broadcast channel since, @Cruiser. I have radio and video (dvd) options at my house. I hear world news and watch what I want. It’s GENIUS

Cruiser's avatar

@ibstubro I do not find the news on the radio any more optimistic than cable I am simply spared the shock and awe visuals. Personally I don’t watch news much anymore and only watch the cooking channels….there I find genius!

To me, @Cruiser, the news on NPR is ideal: couple of minutes once an hour with a world focus. If it’s something that could affect your well being, it will likely be mentioned. My local radio station lists accidents and local events, but is still only a minute or two a few times a day.

Cruiser's avatar

@ibstubro I will have to find the NPR call numbers as all the news I get is 5 minutes to and 5 minutes from work and NPR would probably be the better choice. Thanks!

ibstubro's avatar

I enjoy most of the NPR lineup. There’s a Diane Reams show I’m not fond of because she sounds and acts like she’s 101 years old. The world view news makes me feel less of an egocentric American.

@ragingloli damn dude, you are so fucking funny

GracieT's avatar

Actually, for me the ideal news source is Free Speech TV. Otis truly unbiased and not under the control of anyone. Free Speech TV is exactly that. Not controlled by the right or left, and no corporations either.

ibstubro's avatar

I’m checking it out, @GracieT. Thanks for mentioning it.
