I prefer LA Times to NY Times. Huffington Post. Where do you get your world news fix?

BBC and CNN mostly but I sometimes look at Al Jazeera, Google News and online newspapers. I like online magazines such as New Scientist and Scientific American for science news.

I just found out about the cruise ship in Italy so pretty much any place I don’t use.

My first stop each morning is news.google.com where I have set preferences to display extra content in topics that interest me. Then I hop over to the local ABC Affiliate’s site to see what;s happening in Boston.

I like BBC, ABC (Australian, not American), Al Jazeera, and the Huffington Post. There are more, but those are the ones I most regularly visit.

Newsmeat. http://www.newsmeat.com/ If I find something that strikes my fancy, I look deeper. Usually, the first place I go for more information on a story is a local newspaper.

I like the news feed from AOL (stop laughing), which comes from Huffington Post, but I don’t like the Huffington Post site, because it is too crowded, and takes forever to load.

I like NPR.

I use a variety of US and international sources including NPR, NY TImes, BBC, Daily Mail, Daily Yomiuri Online, Repubblica, Reuters, Jerusalem Post, Al Jazeera, and Xinhua. I find that US sources are still effectively blocking or ignoring some important stories such as the current tensions in the Strait of Hormuz. If you do a Google News search, you’ll see that there are almost no substantial stories in the US press.

There is no single source that is best; most (especially in the US) are biased enough that you need multiple sources to have any chance at truth.

Easy: 1)the BBC,
2) NPR,
and 3) Democracy Now. I may look to the paper also, but papers are getting phased out, and I like these sites more.

Another vote for the BBC for my quick check-ups. Slashdot for tech news. Science daily for journalized articles. Wikileaks central for an alternative news source.

@phoebusg, thanks for adding Science Daily. I enjoy hearing it on Science Friday on NPR and was thrilled to learn that they have a podcast for it. Now I don’t have to wait until Friday
