CNN is at the gates (usually sound turned off, closed captioning on) but the bars have either FOXNews, ESPN, or both). I fly SW a lot, so I watch free live TV on my iPad. The monitors on the cardio machines in my gym have all the news channels, ESPN, all the local network O&Os, PBS and some indie (mostly-rerun) locals. And you need headphones to listen. The rowing machines have no monitors, so I listen to music on my watch via wireless earbuds when I row.

Gramann Rapahannock, 7 Taylors, 4 Martins, 2 Gibsons, 2 V-A, Larrivee Parlour, Gretsch Way Out West, Fender P-J Bass & Mustang, Danelectro U2, Peavey fretless bass, 8 dulcimers, 2 autoharps, 2 banjos, 2 mandolins, 3 ukes

I cried because I had no shoes.....but then I realized I won’t get blisters.

Most Am's I listen to my local Santa Barbara news 1290 AM 6-9am.

Yet lately, with the level of negativity and upheaval going down in HD, I switch to music or reading. No TV or news all day long until the nightly news. You can find my finger on the Fast Forward button quite often.
Who needs some of these local slime crime and what seems like increasing dark depravity? Play guitar....or play _ _ _ _ _ !

BTW, I would not say that my news sources are not left or right
I suspect most of us feel our source(s) are broadcasting truth without spin which is why we chose it.

One person's neutral news source is another person's left, right, or far left or far right.
Probably best to just not rate your preferred sources on the number line from left, to center, to right ... especially here on AGF.

Just sayin.

BBC News.

During the day, I used to listen to NPR's KPFK, but, looking north, they fell of the western edge of the world a few years ago. KPCC, another NPR outlet, now gets some of my attention.

Currently though, it's the LA Dodgers network.....

Fox, CNN, NBC, etc...., has gotten unwatchable.

I learned about Spain on Russia Television (RT) because American television was stuck on Vegas and Harvey Weinstein.

As for online News, I get it here.................
