First in the morning the newspaper (I have to read sth. to get my brain started), later the news pages (it's www.spiegel.de here), in the evening the news (I watch four or five TV news every day, just to get informed about different perspectives, too)

2. IS the source you chose a reliable source of news? Why?
Every news is biased. It's the audience job to filter or reflect information (but most don't do).
3. Do you take into account that the news may be biased?
Well, it's seems that the media gets worse and worse every day. But there's no scientific verification. The media sure controls a lot about hypes and agenda-setting that have too much influence on our daily life and minds. Those issues the media presents are often mediocre from my point of view (like celebrity shit and stuff) in antagonism to really important information.
4. How do you feel about the news media over all? (Are they reliable? Are they moral? are they professional? etc.)
I wonder how information development will look like in five or ten years, and how the internet will move on. How will we receive information in the next years? And is there some counterculture developing against media giants like Rupert Murdoch from the grass roots of the early 21th century internet?
Any other comments about the news media would be greatley appreciaited. It might give me some more ideas.
Myself likes information succinct, without the influence of a biased comment...but that's barely possible. The best news are the short ones from reuters or other news agencies.
