Listen to News Talk Radio
I only watch television news when I want to get angry or practice my arguing. I listen to conservative political talk radio shows because they're less antagonizing, they're educational and informative, they're more intelligent, and they confront subjects that the liberal media conveniently ignores. It's important for you to develop your own political opinion and be ready to debate intelligently; especially in the wake of 9/11. News talk radio prepares you for that. If you're liberal, watch TV News. If you're conservative, listen to News Talk Radio.
