Two years ago I started using these services for my news, in this order:
Project for Excellence in Journalism
Media Matters for America
Fact Check Public Policy Center
One year ago I turned off all commercial broadcast, cable, and satellite services!
Now I've become an avid C-SPAN radio listener and an adept Google Reader user. Judging by the commercials I see at sports bars, in magazines, on billboards, I'm not missing much.
