Unfortunately there is no sufficient filter for politics and sometimes I like to get a dose of the real thing just for perspective. If I only read the lefty stuff that I trust I'd be unable to have reasonable conversation with 90% of the world. If I only paid attention to the mainstream media I'd have to die of depression (or hyper-inflated capitalist patriotism).
As far as news goes, I consume many kinds of media. My filter is that when I get overwhelmed I just stop and pay attention to my community.
