Where do you get your news? And what is the quality of that information?
PBS is hosting a project with the Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in a Democracy seeking public feedback on the future of public information gathering and sharing.
At a time when newspapers are struggling and online media is proliferating, the question about what sources of news enable people to be effective citizens is more important than ever. There have been major concerns over the efficacy of citizen journalism and news bias is generally accepted even among professional journalists. Some web sites offer efforts to cut through, or at least acknowledge and help navigate that bias. What sources of news do you trust or avoid?
To join the conversation, you can visit the Engage Web site until May 8 and tell PBS how you consume information and what needs to happen to ensure continued citizen democracy.

I avoid Fox News. Actually, I avoid television news in general. Print journalism is where the real news is. You can’t do an in depth report in sound bites.
