Spurlock may be producing and starring in a show for CNN, but cable news is not typically where he gets his information from. Rather, his media diet is very fragmented, a familiar story for many news consumers today.
“I read a lot more than I probably watch TV news,” Spurlock said. “I will get up in the morning and watch a little NY1 or CNN in the morning, just to hear what is happening local, and to get a sense of the world, and then I listen to 1010 WINS when I drive in, but then I will read the New York Times, The Huffington Post, Talking Points Memo, to kind of get more of my news.
“All day I get pop up alerts from the AP, Reuters, you name it. Wherever it is, if something pops up I am like, well, I will check it out,” he added.
Spurlock’s “Inside Man” debuts on CNN tonight.
