People, people, people! How in the name of St. Swithin can you pay attention to what’s going on and still believe the reporting on Fox News?

CNN aired an excellent program last night, hosted by Campbell Brown, on dirty political ads.
In this new year, never has it been more important to keep yourself abreast of the news – real news.
