How to Eliminate the Lamestream Media From Your Life and Stay

Totally Informed

The first thought process we must eliminate is that we won't know what's going on
if we tune out CNN or MSNBC, or any other news outlet whose investigative
journalists look more like models and act more like Howdy Doody. First of all, I am
on Facebook, and nobody ever says they learned anything from the MSM. All they
really do is complain about the way the corporate-owned media covers stories, and
ignores real news. So, here's an opportunity to eliminate at least one stress point
from your life.

Here's where to get your news

Recommended with stipulations:

Some of these were, at one time, outlets you could rely on. Not anymore. Some are
relatively new. Pick your spots with this media. It is like everything else. Not
everything is as easy as black and white. There are gray areas.

Notes

A couple of people suggested Thom Hartmann, but I have a hard time defining
anyone supporting Clinton as a progressive voice. His name is here, although not
on the official list. If you choose to watch him, so be it.

The Young Turks (TYT) are off the list as is DailyKos. Both have ceased to be news
sources. They are both run by political operatives Cenk Ugyur and Markos
Moulitsas. Jimmy Dore and Jordan Chariton are both on TYT, but I have not put
them on the list. You may choose to continue watching them if you want.

It goes without saying that you need to look at everything with a critical eye.
