I generally catch it online, either from Twitter, Facebook or news websites.

some times, I read the local paper online, and i follow the news from back home on FB.

I don't routinely watch the news on TV at night, unless it's to catch the weather report

I read our local news sites every day that I am at work (don't really read them on the weekend) as well as cnn.com. I check out msn every now and then.

I don't usually watch the news at night on TV because I am already in bed by then! Sometimes I do catch the 6pm news though.

I open Google News every day, but UGH the stories just make me want to never look at the news again.

Nope, other than reading updates of the government shut down and being concerned for our pay check I enjoy life in our bubble.

I watch our local news while I'm getting ready in the mornings, and then I get to catch a little at lunch time also. Sometimes I check the news site of our local paper.

I mostly read, but I catch about 20 minutes total of local news on the t.v between the morning and 5pm news.

i will check the newspaper here and there to see what is going on, or hear it on the radio, but I would much rather live in blissful ignorance to the chaos in the world. I get easily dragged down, and a lot of the news out there is incredibly depressing.

Hardly, I find it too biased and negative.

I get most my "news" via Facebook, comedians and various message boards.
There's nothing wrong with living in a "bubble". I used to be very involved in issues and politics and it really did nothing but stress me out. We had an election last week in which I left half the ballot blank because I hadn't even heard of the issues at hand.

Yep... I'm a news/newspaper junkie! I mostly watch the local news and I love HLN.

What I hear I only hear because DB is watching the news or tell me about it. I don't watch by choice, it really really gets me down. I, too, appreciate living in my bubble. I don't want to hear that an earthquake is likely to hit our area soon (which DB told me last night). I have enough to worry about in my own little bubble! I don't need added stress.

That being said, during election time I try to at least educate myself about most of the issues.
