I think you've jumped to a conclusion here. As anthonyb started pointing out (and I added to), I do follow general world news, read long-form pieces if they seem interesting and stay abreast of local issues very occasionally through the ABC, chit-chat with friends and colleagues and hear AM radio in the car (my wife listens to it for work reasons).

Think of what I tried to explain as removing some junk food from the diet - or driving through backstreets to avoid the roads they're on!

I'd guess that my media-light diet might have me more informed than many out there who'll read whatever catches their instinct-driven fancy, do you agree?
