Can you recommend 5 insightful news blogs?
I’m looking for news resources other than the major networks/newspapers that focus on providing an explanation and insight into what is being reported, as opposed to just trying to be the first to report.
For a point of reference, I have found that the independent sports blogs on www.sbnation.com/ are (in general) intelligently written and provide interesting and thorough viewpoints that are lacking on the major networks. I’m hoping to find a more general news equivalent.
Edit: I realize that “the news” is probably overly broad, if necessary feel free to limit or break up responses into categories (e.g., economics, politics, etc.).
This question is in the General Section. Responses must be helpful and on-topic.
