Re: [CHAT] News Blues

I mostly hear about the news on TV or over radio. Personally I watch NBN news 

Re: [CHAT] News Blues

Nice @Bookworm2004, do you like NBN news?

1. Where do you hear about the news? Which is your favourite?

 

I mainly read about the news online on The Sydney Morning Herald in the morning... I just skim the headlines and click on what I want to read more about. Sometimes when I get home I'll watch the 4 o'clock news on TV but I usually end up changing the channel.. Sometimes I watch The Project, The Feed or The Weekly if it's on at the time, but this isn't often. My favourite news source would probably be The Sydney Morning Herald because it gets updated regularly.

Re: [CHAT] News Blues

Its aright I guess. It has a lot of information in it whether it is good or bad but sometimes it has too much onformation and it confuses me.
