Where do you get your news, and what is news if not a slanted, agenda-pushing attempt at holding your attention just long enough to pay bills by pushing a manipulative ad that miraculously convinces you that you deserve that settlement, and Brian "The Bulldog" and his crooked law partner will get it for you...guaranteed? As a skeptic and critical thinker, I find it imperative to get as close to hearing the real stories that shape the world as possible (there will still always be an agenda).
In 2014, I'm convinced that the single most difficult task for consumers is finding a balance between consumption and curation. It's never been easier to dictate exactly what gets fed to you (and I'm not just talking news). How great it is right? Well, great if you've taken the time to curate and not just jumped in the herding line with your mouth open. With great power comes great responsibility right? By the way, check your facts on that quote...the original attribution should not be to Stan Lee, FDR or Winston Churchill. Man, where do you get your news?
Take a peek below at what I find to be some of the best media sources available today. Bias free? Hell no. Fully bipartisan? Wouldn't say that. Agenda-ridden? Perhaps at times. But given the current landscape, you could do much much worse. *coughcoughFoxNews* -- Excuse me...something in my throat there.
