My Canadian friend Jeremy posted this http://www.fluffontheinternet.com/pivot/entry.php?id=373 item on his blog about the TrooperGate reporting.
News here in the US is getting more and more sensationalistic on all sides. The volume and smoke surrounding the election is getting worse. I would encourage people to read all 3 articles to get a better perspective.
On thing that mitigates this is getting new from multiple sources, as well as getting it delivered that way all the time. I really like http://news.google.com/ The google Reader allows you get this type of news daily. Any feed reader can accomplish this.
