How do you keep abreast of current events?

Mostly word of mouth, sometimes the news/paper.

Dianne, 17

I like to watch CNN...but I always have.

Jennifer, 19

I usually wait for everyone else to start talking about it then check CNN.

Alias Irrelevante

Mostly internet news and the newspaper.

Angela, 18
Bella Vista

I listen to National Public Radio -- the morning and evening news and if I'm travelling I'll catch the afternoon shows like Talk of the Nation. I read the local paper for local newspaper. I read the news at the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal web sites. Recently, if the president has a speech or news conference, I'll log onto MSNBC.com to see the video feed.  (I don't

Well, you see...there's this thing called a newspaper.  Actually, I only read the paper if I happen to come across one throughout my day. I never watch the news on television. I rely on Yahoo and MSN to keep me abreast of current events as I routinely check both sites a number of times a day.

Aaron, 22

I watch the news on TV, listen to the radio, and occasionally read a newspaper.

Tracy, 24
Ocean City

I don't.

Johanna, 18

My main source is NPR. I also watch the Sunday morning shows occasionally (I.e. talk of the nation, meet the press) and I switch to CNN. In general I don't like mainstream media, I feel as though I never get the info or truth that I'm looking for. I also read online Slate, The Onion, The Nation, and Salon. If the news is international, I'll try to watch the CBC and read a couple of online newspapers from other places.

Felicia, 35
, MA   USA

I get the Oregonian daily, but I also read the NY Times and the London Telegraph on line. I sometimes watch ABC or NBC news, usually catch the BBC World News once a day, and occasionally watch cable news.

Jane, 62
West Linn
, OR   USA

Have signed up for CNN's "Breaking News" email notifications and also read the newspaper daily....read news items on Internet every morning with my tea.

Fisch, 46
, CT   USA

I read two daily newspapers and selected articles on line from the New York Times. I read three weekly magazines devoted to news and current affairs and four monthly magazines which cover selected issues in depth. Recently I've started sampling news stories (translated) from European, Middle Eastern, African, Asian and South American papers.

Jill, 60
, PA   USA

I'm on the web all day, so mostly via news websites. Well, also on the radio news blurbs during my morning commute.

Talia, 24
, CT   USA

Not very well.

Karen, 22

I read the news on the Internet and sometimes watch news television in the morning before I go to work. I would like to add that I did not start watching the news in the morning until September 11 - there seems to be more at stake now so it's important to watch and stay up to date on what's going on.
