Perhaps it's because I don't have a television that I depend on print media.
I have one word for you: radio!
In general news coverage and analysis is much better than television (perhaps because covering is not distorted by the desire to concentrate on stories which happen to have visually arresting footage) and less driven than newspapers by the desire to target a particular market segment to gratify advertisers.
I get most of my news from the radio, supplemented by online sources and newspapers in that order. I only look at the TV news when I feel like a bit of visually arresting footage.
