The News

The other day I realized that my mom and dad watch the news a lot (on tv). Before work, while making dinner and in the evening. They also read the local paper daily.

We don’t have cable and I don’t get a newspaper delivered. I actually tend to get most of my “breaking news” on Twitter and read about things happening in real time before most even know about it (perk of staying up super late?). While I know of things happening, I don’t always fully grasp a lot of world news. I want to be better about it but I don’t really know where to start (or where to get unbiased information).

How are you informed of current events? Do you subscribe to larger media outlets? Do you depend on social media?
