Addicted to Current TV

What can I say? I'm hooked. For the Current-virgins, Current TV is (as far as I can tell) a relatively new channel. (Or at least, I've never noticed it, which could be a distinct possibility as Tivo generally rules our household's television with an iron fist.) It unique broadcasting format is perfect for those of us with short attention spans who are turned off by network news that continually airs the same, biased stories in 10-15 minute rotation.

Current TV airs 3-7 minute pods of content in constant rotation. I hardly ever see the same pod twice (thank the blessed stars!). The really neat thing is that the pods are user-created - they use the term viewer created content. It's almost a professional-version of YouTube. Anyone can create an upload pods, the everyone can vote on the pods to determine which of them will be aired. It's awesome!
