Then came cable news and the Internet - wow you could have information over load!
I daily read my local papers, BBC News and Deutsche Welle [pronounced vella] and others. Then there is all kinds of cable news CNN, MSNBC, FOX, CBC, and well you know the line up.
I am aware of the bias of each and that is fine with me as it gives me a chance to sort out some truth. Well that is not always easy with both major parties playing dirty tricks with "Leaks" that are not true. But the over seas news gives me a wider perspective that helps me understand how other nations look at the US. It take a lot of study to take it all in.
