...Any idea how to find out which ones aren't?...

The last two times the power went out for days, I turned on my battery-powered radio and just scanned the dial until I heard a station giving local information.

That seemed to be a rather easy way to find which stations were broadcasting local info. btw, there were four stations that I could receive which abandoned their automated programming to go local.

When have sensationalist headlines become popular here on /. ? I've been seeing more and more provocative political headlines on this site.

I visit /. to get away from the drudge-type sites.

Are these topics indicative of the course the new owners of /. are taking, now that they have found out they cannot change the look of the site?

It looks like the BBC presumes me to be an unsavory character here in the US. I am not able to view videos on the BBC news site, for some reason the BBC seems to think that the videos should not be viewed by me.

To me, the BBC looks to be an organization that is completely anal with regard to who can view or who can access what on their website.

It looks to me as if the BBC would rather restrict than inform. But, hey, that is their choice.

If I were a news-oriented organization, I would probably take a different approach, but that's just me.
