Recommended TV and Internet viewing for those wishing for news of what is happening other than Hollywood gossip.
Get yourself to television programs like "Democracy Now!" Grit TV and Thom Hartmann on channels like FREE SPEECH TV and LINK TV.
Corporate interests have not helped us learn much regarding what is going on in the world lIke they should: ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, MSNBC, etc. All these are short on what is happening. Their editing is not good for us common folk.
For good reporting the BBC-TV or BBC AMERICA are great. And generally PBS programs great, too. BBC-AMERICA is now on most PBS stations. An informed public can avoid wars and other odd things legislators come up with all the time.
All these are on the Internet also. Get informed.
