I listen to daily news streams over the web, and take it all with a grain of salt, but I have virtually unplugged from all television and cable media. Once in awhile when I am visiting friends or family, I get a glimpse at what's aired on television as far as shows/commercials and the agenda behind a lot of the programming seems blatant to me now.
