Yea, I never said it was easy.  The 6:30 network newscasts on TV are 
sometimes not bad, but they too are often selectively edited to avoid 
offending the administration, because the network reporters fear 
losing access.

As for Pacifica, I thought their program "Democracy Now" was on WMBR 
and WBRS.  Sometimes I catch the TV version of the program on the 
Worldlink channel on DirecTV.  But, I wouldn't call them objective 
either, their reporting is definitely to the left of left.
