Hacker News new | past | comments | ask | show | jobs | submit login

I've done something similar. I pretty much ignore what's happening on the news. Anything really big usually ends up on hacker news. :)

I do listen to a local radio talk show once in awhile to get an overview of what's happening in my state and sometimes the country. I've been meaning to watch Al Jazeera English more. I've enjoyed it whenever I've watched it.

Here's their site in case you want to bookmark it and take a look now and then: http://english.aljazeera.net/

Occasionally there's a story there that I find interesting but often it's enough to skim the front page.

I already have the site bookmarked ;)
