Self-determined approach to seeing the world

For many people (myself included) it is the media (TV, newspapers) that determine what we see of the world. The media decides what we see and what we don’t see. I suppose that by viewing a range of TV newscasts and newspapers, one can have a larger aperture on the world. And, by and large, I think the media does a descent job. Nonetheless, it would be nice to determine my own view of the world. Rather than someone else feeding me a view of the world, it would be nice if I deliberately chose the mechanisms by which to see the world. I wonder if it would be good to simply cut off all media and identify, say, 5 (non-media) avenues for getting an understanding of what’s happening in the world? How do you get your view of the world? Are you on a self-determined path to seeing the world? I am interested in hearing your thoughts.
