Add grain of salt, stir, and let settle.
news outlet gives raw data anymore - you have to figure that out yourself from the spin put on it. By using/correlating different sources, you can learn to filter out the spin on your own, and what is fact (because everyone spins it just a little differently...)
Shortwave is fun anyhow - I remember flipping through the HF dial once upon a time, and catching KISS' "God Gave Rock & Roll To You." Listened to the song, then the DJ after - took me a minute to realise he was speaking Russian (coincidentally,) but I put the station in my notebook.
That was 15 years or so ago, but they stayed on a good rock format for years (which is a good thing, because there's getting to be precious little of that around here...)
