I watch the PBS Newshour if there's an issue I want more information about from American politics - often that leads to more stuff I can research on the internet. They have both left and right perspectives and pretty interesting debates that are well moderated, also the level of background detail they have is just superb. Don't watch and wouldn't want to watch Fox or NBC (we get both station's business channels out here and they're just useless static by and large). Do occasionally read the New York Times, Washington Post or whatever other American newspaper, but never for political commentary.
Edit: this forum is a pretty good bellwether of political views in the USA, especially the Republican and libertarian views. If you want to find some perspective on a particular issue in politics in the USA from the right side, here is a good place to start.
