But almost equally, don't watch CNN.

I'd recommend The Independent and DemocracyNow! if you want "leftist" news, although DN is way more "left" than The Independent, which is a mainstream newspaper.
Otherwise BBC, Reuters and AP. Also, check out EuroNews and al Jazeera if you get it on your TV.
Otherwise Fox if you want something closer to "Jerry Springer - Current Events" than news.
