    Hey Fambly.

    We know there is so much misinformation out there. As far as credibility the major news media has put itself on a level with supermarket tabloids. By what standard and against what measure do you judge the truth of what you read on the internet, see on television or wherever?

    Thanks for the list. I read the Final Call sometimes when I am particularly fed up with the mainstreamers. These others that you listed I will definitely check them out.
