I use multiple information devices that can take any “Live Stream feed from the Net and from all sources on Xfinity cable. I’ve done this for years to be able to see how other networks or news sources cover events Especially “Live”. Working in Broadcasting for many years I had access to many many feeds that the most can’t see simultaneously. The 1994 OJ Simpson white Bronco ride around LA on the 5 Freeway was my first home based multi channel simultaneous watch. That was PRE- Social Media, but me and some guys on CompuServe text-chatted during the “ride”. This was also PRE World Wide Web. My most memorable moment: As the LA Sun starting going low in the sky I mentioned to 2 other colleagues on a headset conference call: “Those guys are going to have to roll filters soon.” (Meaning they would have to roll out their camera daylight filters and White Balance OR go to Clear as the Color Temp of the Sky was rapidly going warm) within 3 minutes of my saying that they rolled filters!!!!
This is my minimum set up for watching news, taking notes, fact-checking and Facetime/Skype conversations about election coverage. It’s basically just 3 iPads/iphone 6+ and a 55′ Flat Screen DVR with RF headphones.
If you are a touch typist you can interact with others and keep up with real time events. It’s all meaningless information. But fun.

My Global Media List. ( yes it has a western slant)
International Media — BBC, the Guardian, South China Morning Post (Hong Kong English Language) Council on Foreign Relations, DieWelt (german use the translate…it’s good) the Moscow Times/English Version.
If I could only read one Media site daily from each Category it would be:
#1) Domestic— The Wall Street Journal. (Paywall. IMHO Best Paper in the USA)
I’m going to do a”Live” Google Feed/Hangout on Election Night and Tie in HamRadio. Drop me a note if you want to join the round table.
