I am a certified news junkie! I just enjoy keeping up with what is going on in the world around me. When I lived in the USA, I primarily enjoyed keeping up with US news, although I would keep up with the major world stories as well. Now that I live in the Philippines, I enjoy keeping up with US News and Philippine News, with World News as a “headlines only” type of thing.
For Philippine news, I particularly enjoy watching ANC (ABS-CBN News Channel, Channel 44 on SkyCable in Davao). They tend to have relatively up to date Philippine news there. For World news, I find CNN International the best. However, as I said, on World Headlines, I don’t keep up as in depth as I do for US and Philippine news.
For US News, Fox is my favorite source. However, last year (I think it was around July) I got dealt a little blow when it came to my US News monitoring… Fox News was taken off the air here! It had been available on satellite only (no cable coverage for Fox News), over the Dream TV Network, but it was dropped from the lineup. Because of this, there is a void when it comes to US News. I know, you are saying to watch CNN. However, CNN International is what is available here, and not the normal CNN that airs in the USA. The coverage is way different, with only a small amount of US news coverage available over CNN International.
When they dropped Fox, I cut off my subscription to Dream TV and just went with cable, which is cheaper. The main thing I watched on the satellite was Fox News anyway. In addition, I had both Satellite and Cable TV in my house anyway. Why pay for both, when neither has the main channel I wanted to watch?
I still get US news, primarily over the Internet, but I do miss my Fox News! Maybe it will be back someday, but I doubt it will anytime soon.
