Reason: Where do I post the Poll questions????
Nothings perfect , but I use the BBC , public radio & TV , many things I disagree with on there views , but I think in some cases its closer to the truth .
And another benefit , a lot less soap-opra garbage .
For investigative , my favorite is Front Line .
As for posting a poll , from front page - 3rd section down - ham radio discussion - at the bottom of that section , its labeled survey center .
Or right here

In fact, it feed me this thread while reading through the news items.
I've been a daily BBC World Service listener since I was 14. I still listen to the Beeb on HF, even though BBCWS doesn't broadcast to N. America or Europe anymore. Generally the W. African or SE Asian services should still be copyable in most parts of the USA. Other times I'll listen to the Beeb online.
As for print, I enjoy The Economist.
My mother, who passed away at 85, read the newspaper from one end to the other, for all her life. She was always up on current events. That must be where I got my addiction to the newspaper. The only trouble I have now is, they don't deliver papers where I live. I have to go into town every day to buy one. In times of foul weather (snow, sleet, etc.) the paper is not available, even in town.
The newspaper gives me everything. Foreign news, local news, political commentary, etc.. Then, at the end, I get the comics and the crossword puzzles. The biggest gripe I have about our local paper, The Arizona Republic, is that they dropped Prince Valiant from the Sunday paper and replaced it with Zippy. That almost caused me to go ballistic and stop reading it. But my addiction to news print won out.

In my area, it seems that every pickup truck or SUV comes with one or more dogs. It's so common that I can only assume that the dog(s) must come with the vehicle. So logic tells me that, if you want to keep the truck for a long time, go for the multi-dog option. Otherwise, if the dog dies, you have to buy a new truck. I have five dogs (4 dogs as of 4/4/2013, RIP Katie), so I'm set for a few years.

Actually, I'm convinced more and more that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are more trustworthy news sources than Rupert Murdoch or Ted Turner. It's certainly a very sad commentary on American "news" when the political satire shows are often more accurate than purported "objective reporting"!

In the evenings I will tune in some of the 50 kW AM stations around the country for some local flavor in thier local news but most of the time thier other programming has become all the same few syndicated talk shows.
Local TV news is mostly about car wrecks on the freeways and unwed moms with 5 kids getting firebombed out of thier rented houses or shot ! (if it bleeds, it leads) . Fox news on the cable is not too bad to watch for national stories.
I look thru the Sunday Detroit news and Detroit Free Press papers, one leans right and the other leans left, I have to try to take an average of thier stories to get the truth..
