If I'm out & about, I'll try to pick up a newspaper for news updates. If I'm @ the library or @ home, I'll often pop onto CNN.com, etc. for a quick update. If something interests me further, I'll look into it via newspaper, tv news, etc.
Most of the news is so depressing. I prefer to search the news websites and look for the headings that interest me. Television news just dumps all the negative stuff on you, with no regard for what you prefer to hear.
I always seem to go online for news. Since I work long days, when I am at my computer I will just click, skim and get back to work. Don't seem to have time for newpapers anymore..not when I work and have kids. If its late in the evening though I will turn on the 11 o'clock news and watch a little.
