If we didn't have the internet then we wouldn't have news. Mainstream is unreliable at best. I don't trust anything from the big players. What kills me about commentators are that they don't have a clue about what they are saying and never did but try to appear as if they know something about what they are talking about. Notice the difference on CSPAN when a caller gives an opinion and then waits for a reply from the commenator - CSPAN hosts say "Thanks for the call" and go on to the next caller because they know not to offer an opinion; they are just providing information not opinion. The really important fact concerning internet sources is that one can check sources from several viewpoints and then make an educated decision. I like that! I wish someone would start a commercial network based on that idea. Instead of brainwashing we could have "information".
