Tradition of independent press

Quoting Jacob Weisberg

"What's most distinctive about the American press is not its freedom but its century-old tradition of independence—that it serves the public interest rather than those of parties, persuasions, or pressure groups. Media independence is a 20th-century innovation that has never fully taken root in many other countries that do have a free press."

I concur. I find all the cable news disheartening. None seem to do any investigative jurnalism - where are Woodward and Bernsteins of today? Hmm, maybe Micheal Moore? Though none could say he doesn't have a liberal agenda.

So, where to get news? How about digg or Comedy Central? It's just too hard to say.
