    I don't pay much attention to the news. I forego reading or listening or watching entirely for days on end. I tend to get most of my news from the five minute news breaks at the top of the hour on CBC Radio One; that is when I'm listening, which is nowhere near as often as I used to.

    It all seems like a colossal series of farces to me. Stories manufactured to advance an agenda, stories of dubious origins that are parroted over and over enough times that people believe it: so much of it is just propaganda junk that I can't be bothered. It's all just so ridiculous and seems like such a waste of time to me.

    I'll admit I look at every once in a while though. It suffices. Otherwise I leave it to others to ask me, "Have you heard about __________?"

    "No, no I haven't, what's that all about?" Sometimes I follow up on these little exchanges, sometimes I don't.

    And a bunch of others.
    That reminds me... out of topic but...

    The damn Business Department buys so much of the Wall Street Journal that they need to stack them outside our building (the Political Science Department shares the same building.) It was funny when one of my professors was joking about how the Business Department was practically begging people to take all the unused newspapers because they didn't have enough students to make use of the newspapers.

    I don't go to one in particular. I tend to like to read all the major news outlets and blogs, and have no real preference. That way I see all sides of an issue.

    Of course, most people don't have the time to do that.

    If Trevor Noah is half as informative and entertaining as Jon, the Daily Show will still be better than half of the other news programs.

    (Also, 'fall'? Kind of a dramatic way to frame 'retirement.')

    Whatever Flipboard decides to feed me. Minus Salon, I generally dislike Salon articles intensely.
