I live near Seattle, am a former journalist/foreign correspondent. I watch no American network news shows; only the BBC from PBS.Org. It's by far the most balanced coverage available in the English language in the US.
On the Middle East, for print journalism, I'll take Robert Fisk as head and shoulders above everyone else.
