    What are your primary personal means of learning the news?

    First thing in the morning fire up the TV for the early local news, then the internet to surf the news sites before heading for the Baptist Board, pour coffee, bring in the morning paper and read it through. When I'm in the car, it's tuned to talk radio--Beck, Rush, Hannity, etc.

    I think the term is "news junkie."

    Most of my news is of the techie sort so the Internet is my main source. I sometimes catch an update on the radio, too.

    Various Internet websites such as Drudge Report, CNN.com, and Yahoo for news and financial info, sports talk radio for a lot of sports news, MSNBC, C-SPAN, BBC radio, maybe even listen to Rush Limbaugh for a couple of minutes, local newspaper.
