I'm an open minded independent so I subject myself to news from all sources from both the left and right so that I can get an accurate feel for what's really going on in the world. That's how I recently descovered Thom Hartmann's highly informative radio show.
Coming from a conservative family, I'm a bit concerned with people who subject themselves ONLY to Fox News and conservative blogs. I have family members who do this and it's astonishing to me how much they DON'T know as they are simply not exposed to all the facts. They're not getting both sides of the story in most cases and this leaves them vulnerable to welll...well 'brainwashing' to be frank.
I think the same could be true on the liberal side as well. I think it's very dangerous for anyone to subject themselves to news (sometimes propaganda) to just one side.
Just like a judge or a jury we need to know all the facts.
