    Default C-Span is an excellent channel

    Its called C-Span and I started often watching it and it has all these "behind the scenes" meetings on issues like Iraq, Supreme Court ruling, relations between America and Russia and other interesting events.

    They show it uncut with some opinions and arguments that you will never see in mainstream media.

    One Russian delegation totally assailed Mr. Lantos of Foreign relations committee one night on issues like Kosovo. Last night they had law professors from top schools discuss whether the Supreme Court's new Justices are straight ideologues. Great stuff! Very informative!

    One night awhile ago they had Karl Rove basically explaining how USA should take over the World.

    Big, I don't watch it all the time, but I agree it can be very informative. And even though politicians are often posturing, as you say, it's a refreshingly unfiltered, unspun medium and you're exposed to a variety of different views. It's like being in the capitol, without actually having to go there. I like C-Span 2, too.

    Big, did you just get cable, or did you just now realize that there are channels other than CNN available?

    C-Span 2 on the weekends usually consists of interviews with authors of recent books. It's good as well.

    Not only is C-Span very informative, it is also a great cure for insomnia.
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.

    Contrast C-Span to talk radio, or the cable news networks like Fox, CNN, MSNBC.

    Contrast the BBC or DW to talk radio, or the cable news networks like Fox, CNN, MSNBC.

    In the U.S. we have a lot of dumbed-down media.

    C-Span has been around since 1979.
