i would say A because with C, u could be reading untrustyworthy sources. with A you can be sure to be listening to up-to-date political topics.

I would go with c.
a has that ONLY word in there. In addition, there is no reason to believe that TV news and commentary is more trustworthy than other sources. (In fact, my personal opinion is that the news media, including TV news and commentaries, often slant the news to suit the occasion. The media deny that but listen and read closely.) c also allows listening to debates from the candidates themselves and that is a good source for deciding.

k, thanx. that was my guess, too.

I would be pick (c), but with qualifications. It depends upon the variety you select. A person who gets his or her information from Fox (cable) News, the National Review magazine and The Orange County Register, for example, is not getting a balanced view of the news. TV shows like Meet the Press and newspapers like the New York Times do a better job, in my opinion.
