well i don't hold anything off american news channels, but that's probably because i am spoiled by bbc and the german government channels and their excellent news shows. i watch the morning news about two times (they are aired half hourly between 5 and 9 am) and when i am at work and have my break, i check different international news sites too. i don't like slash dot, proly not geek enough
-edit- i used to read all sorts of other pages and a lot of rss feeds, when gotten home at night. i have reduced that though. with internet, its just a tad of an information overflow. i tend to buy weekly magazines like "die zeit" or "der spiegel" too, as it gives me more time
and its more like focussing on the important / major topics. additionally it gives me no time rush and sometimes i read it over a fortnight and just skip one release. its not about how much news you read, its about reading news after all and being aware of the main issues / happenings. just mho.
