I subscribe to several electronic newsletters from the CBC: a daily morning news briefing (world and national headlines) plus weekly reports on health, politics (Canadian), the environment, the economy, and a summary of upcoming CBC Ideas
topics (which sadly I rarely have time to listen to in full, but I do often read the backgrounders that accompany the episodes). I also read the Nature Briefing and, when I have time, I trawl the Web for additional cool science news.
I try not to watch television news in general, although I live with people who constantly have the television on and often have it tuned to CNN, CBC News, or the BBC World News. So I have exposure to that, even when I don't want it. (I spend a significant amount of time in the kitchen. They watch television in the next room, with the volume cranked high.)
Occasionally I watch Fox News segments on YouTube in an effort to get a handle on what people who are not like me are being exposed to and led to believe.
