Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I have a widget on my phone that scrolls headlines from my chosen feeds that I glance at throughout the day. Also, Twitter, as long as you watch your sources.

All day, talk radio, internet, Fox, and CNN. The more up to date I am on the geopolitical situation, the better.

I listen to NPR in the car, but it's a five-minute drive, so I get most of it when I read the paper in the evening after work, when it is delivered.

I get a lot of news through Twitter, but for local news it's all physical print.

I do the AM/PM NPR Morning Edition/All Things Considered commute. But I also skim a physical paper newspaper every day.

NPR while commuting to/from work.

This answer is much more common than I expected it to be.

At work.

I have msnbc as my homepage on Mozilla and Fox News as my homepage on explorer. I open both when I get to work and then end up laughing about how they write about the same news events but almost nothing in their articles match.

I get my news exclusively from Drudgereport.com. It is by far the best News site on the internet. Everything you need to read is right there on the front page.

5 minutes of radio on the drive into work. It's pretty much all the same information regardless of where you find it.

my old android phone with regular earbuds switched seamlessly to taking a call from listening without a inline mic. it just uses the mic in the phone and outputs the call to the headphones
