52. Start with Pacifica

Although it's constantly undergoing tumult, it is entirely listener supported, which means it is utterly free of corporate influence. There are only a handful of stations, but if you have Internet access, you can listen to any of them online.

The Real News is also an excellent source of thoughtful discussion on politics and current events. Once again, it's untainted by corporate influence.

As for MSNBC, it's to progressive politics what porn is to sex. It only exists because it fills a market niche. It's designed to titillate not change. It's all about money not politics. If anyone on staff strays too far from the corporate agenda, they are dealt with rather harshly. Just ask Phil Donahue or Cenk Uygur (I'd say Keith Olbermann, too, but that's a bit more complicated).
