So I'm a self-confessed news junkie. I watch a lot of it, but basically limit my sources to CNN and Fox. I'm also a self professed liberal democrat and the main reason that I tune into Fox is to get a bit of a different perspective on things........most of which I just laugh at, some of which I want to put my fist through the TV tube (Hannity gets me a bit upset) and sometimes, although rarely, they offer up a different perspective that makes me go................hmmmmm. (but that doesn't happen often). Two days ago, I tuned into a Russian news station called RT (Russia Today)....this is all through Dish Network. Never saw this before. They are obviously on a small budget, but their programming is done really well. It's a 24 hour news station, much like CNN and follows a similar format, mixed in with some pretty rough political commentary similar to Fox, but from a Russian perspective. VERY INTERESTING. They obviously put their own spin on things but it's really interesting to see how they frame things like what is happening in Syria along with the NSA spy revelations. It's a totally different perspective on things but again, after just getting spoon fed from the American press here in the States, be it from the left or the right or somewhere in the middle, it's really an eye-opener to see how "the other side" thinks and why they think what they think. What's also interesting is that ALL of their journalists and talking heads speak English with a very deep English accent...........like they were all broadcasting from London. If ya like your news, this is worth a tune in. The last show I saw was a commentary on Bill Maher and they lumped him in with Colbert and Jon Stewart calling them all Democratic lackey's who do the bidding and are totally subservient to the Democratic Party. lol..... Can't wait to what their take is on Fox News. Some of their stuff is really outrageous, but some of it will definitely make you go...........hmmmmm And for me, anything that makes me go..., and challenges my preconceptions, be it a news program, a movie, a book, a debate or a discussion, is definitely worth my time.
