It amuses me when most people talk politics. They clearly get all their information from news sources that agree with their point of view. They never question the source. They just absorb and repeat it. Both think their side is 100% right and simply cannot understand how someone can disagree. The radical fanatics on the other side are only in it for themselves and hate the US.
What I have found the best way, although time consuming, is to use a news aggregator. I find something interesting, then read different articles about that story. I only wish I had the know how to streamline this.
