1. I usually get it on the Internet, generally from iGoogle, Yahoo!, and the New York Times online. We used to get the Chicago Tribune, and then they changed their layout and it's 30% news and 70% ads/junk stuff now, so we canceled our subscription. Oh, but we get Newsweek. And I listen to NPR every morning. 2. I am very interested, and have been since the 2000 election. Before that, I was moderately interested but there were definitely other things that interested me much more, and at that point in time I would definitely choose CSI, Lie to Me (great show), etc. over the news. Now I watch MSNBC almost every night, along with The Daily Show (and Lie to Me xD). 3. Democrat all the way, man. I know a lot of mommies on here are Republican/Conservative or whatever, but I'm a Democratic person. Sorry. =\ 4. 12, 9, 6, and 9 months. 5. I consider my 12 y/o and my 9 y/o old enough, maybe even my 6 y/o although she is VERY uninterested. And I do talk to them, I've talked to them about it since they were about 8. My 12 y/o watches Rachel Maddow with me. 6. Discussions w/ adults and or peers, Internet, and radio. 7. Yes, mainly the sad stuff about small girls being raped by Congress people. And murder and everything overly violent, at least for my 9 y/o. Not because I don't think she's ready to hear it, but because she hears enough of it thank you very much. 8. Very. It's great. =]
