HGov: Current Events

Get in the Habit of Reading/Watching the News

Ways to follow current events:

  1. Watch an evening network news program. Local news is great for weather, sports, and local soft stories, but they do not cover politics and governmental events like the networks do.
  2. Read the Washington Post or the New York Times. Read the editorial and opinion section as well as letters to the editors.
  3. Read the front page section of http://www.msn.com, http://www.cnn.com, or http://www.nytimes.com.
  4. Watch C-SPAN and CSPAN-2 for coverage of the House of Representatives and the Senate. In addition, there are excellent evening and Sunday programs on the Supreme Court and the White House.
  5. Read weekly news magazines such as Time, Newsweek, or U.S. News and World Report.
  6. Listen to a radio talk show. There are numerous programs and hosts available to choose from.
