Where do you get your news?

Asked by credo99 (20points) March 21st, 2008

I watch CNN a lot lately but am getting sick of them. I also watch Fox just for a laugh.

BBC online seems to be a good, neutral choice.

from the “funnies” in the news and four Germans. Ad random as that sounds its all true. I am jaded to traditional news gathering.

-The Economist. It rocks; well written and often with a Brit twist.
-I also like watching Fox to keep things clear of the “spin zone”

SquirrelEStuff's avatar, yahoo,, cspan(facts, not opinions),, I check mainstream media sometimes. Rawstory oftens reports stories weeks ahead of MSM.

Most importantly, talk radio. I listen to everything on Sirius, right and left. Also, Thom hArtmann in NY on 1600 am

BBC isn’t neutral, Reuters is…

I get my news online from these sources, via RSS:

The New York Times
Washington Post
Engadget (weak)
Huffington Post
Marginal Revolution
& a slew of Apple fansites.

Web: NYTimes
TV: The News Hour with Jim Lerher, Washington Week, Bill Moyers Journal, Frontline. All PBS.

I really do love The News Hour with Jim Lerher, though. It really is the most boring newscast on TV. I have to force myself not to change the channel, but I do so because I believe that the news shouldn’t come with sound effects.

I’m gonna say digg. I like it cause I go to one source for a lot of information, not just tech stuff. But for tech engadget. And occasionally

The ABC (NOT the American ABC, but the totally unrelated Australian Broadcasting Corporation). The ABC is pretty much the Australian equivilent of the BBC – they’re both highly reputable sources.

And the ABC are commercial-free because they’re funded by the government (even their TV channels don’t have ads, just like the BBC).

Plus, the ABC News site is really nicely designed, too ^_^.

I do miss “The Weekly World News” since it went out of business. Anybody have any updates on Bat-Boy or the aliens who visit congress?
