I have the opportunity to watch the local and network news once a day between 5:00 and 7:00, the last half hour of which is national news. The past week or so I watched intently the information about the rains and flood waters out in the Missouri, Arkansas areas and felt really bad for those living there. This winter has really been a strange one for the whole nation, not just areas of it.
I enjoy watching the news like that, I don't have time, with my current schedule, to sit down and read a newspaper, besides, I feel newpapers have a tendancy to be very biased in their opinions, even when they are writing about issues where opinions aren't even called for.
I'm not saying that the networks can't be biased, I just feel that they are less biased than most other forms of getting the news, at least at the national level. So, that's my choice.
