I read the news today, oh boy

I don't have a lot to say about the war, other than it looks like Canada won't jump in without a UN Security Council resolution and I'm glad for that.

But I read a story on Wired News today that I found interesting. Apparently visits from America to foreign news websites are way up.

The article suggests that the American media isn't providing any debate about the pro- and anti-war positions or any criticism of the administration. And so Americans are going elsewhere to find it.

They quote an editor from the Guardian:

The only debate in the U.S. media is on the Web, Dennis said. "Weblogs are doing all the work that the U.S. media did in the past," he said. "That's an interesting development."

I don't follow any US media outlets, other than a glance at CNN every once in a while, so I can't speak to this. (I generally get my info from The Globe and Mail.) But I'm interested to know -- if you're an American, are you going elsewhere for your news? How do you feel about your domestic media?
