  •  For punditry, CSPAN rocks, CNN sucks (none)
    My parents get CSPAN on their cable and I really enjoy watching it. Their discussions with commentators, on both the left and sometimes the right, are pretty enlightening.

    The format is much better than the infotainment-oriented shouting on other networks. Instead of soundbites and witticisms, the guests spend an hour or two giving a detailed explanation of their views with large amounts of time to respond to questions. The audience gets to see the assumptions in play, which is VITALLY important given how the amount of right-wing control of social thought.

    With the Crossfire format, the thinking behind the opinions aired is buried under all the yelling and accusations. Innuendo functions as a substitute for clear reasoning.
