TVNewser attended the NCAA Tournament Media Day to speak with Charles Barkley, Marv Albert and the other voices of March Madness. But we didn’t talk basketball, instead opting to get the Turner Sports and CBS Sports commentators’ take on current media issues.

In Part 3 of a three-part series, we ask the talent behind the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament how they consume news while traveling. Do any of them actually watch the news on TV?

Check out Part 1, when Barkley and Co. discuss the Brian Williams scandal. And Part 2, when we ask if Barkley should look into taking over hosting duties on “The Daily Show” once Jon Stewart retires.
