When watching or listening to programs like the "The David Packman Show" or "The Rush Limbaugh Show". Keep in mind that theses shows are mostly not news but running commentary to support their political agendas. Trying to bring you around to their way of thinking. Some of these programs are supported by dark corporate money (Like Rush).
You start wonder about something talked about on these types of programs you should check it out on more that just one news site. Good place to start would be National Public Radio (NPR). "NPR has in place a strong system of checks and balances." Try to stay away from big news services like Fox News who has ties to corporate money and political agendas.
