    It's all manufactured fiction.
    This is a bit naive. Take some salt with what the media spins out, sure, but try to stay informed about what is happening around you.

    I watch BBC news and read news over the internet. On the internet you can look at all the newspapers and pick what you're interested in. I tend to look at the Guardian, Independent and Telegraph mostly.

    I also get some from conservation charities I support. They often cover the sort of stuff which the news doesn't pay much attention to.

    BBC news mobile and on TV. And I try to watch it everyday since I believe it's important to be knowledgeable about the current issues, which could affect me directly or indirectly.

    Seriously though, mainly BBC and various newspapers for online, but I prefer either The Times or The FT in print. Magazine-wise The Economist is pretty good.

    P.S. Probably not worth listening to CNN as their ideas on how to reduce gun crime in the US are truly laughable.

    Back when I was doing my A levels I used to read The Times everyday to pass the time during my long breaks between lessons, I chose The Times due to the thickness of the newspaper which took longer for me to read it and pass time.
    I'm actually at university now doing a joint degree, one of my subjects happens to be politics and I'm very ashamed to admit I haven't done much reading on news since leaving college roughly a year ago. I really need to get back into it because it does interest me, I'm not sure as to why I stopped, that is in regards to reading newspapers anyway, usually I just watch Andrew Marr Show, Question Time, Prime Minister's Questions and maybe Daily Politics once or twice a month, I don't usually keep up with that show much because it's on daily and can't be arsed watching it everyday.

    I watch Al Jazeera.

    And I love the way they take on the twisted stories CNN, BBC, Sky, Fox News, Washington Post and New York Times present us with sometimes and how they get to the bottom of the actual truth in those news stories. Their programme 'Listening Post' is specially good to deal with that kind of stuff.
