The point is to keep alert and from being fooled by propaganda, because it probably won't stop here.
What are examples of independent media? I usually read papers from back home (Belgian, German, Dutch news sites) and even though they're not as media oriented as Fox news, they're not necessarily independent or agenda free either.
