I have decided to become an informed individual, so I'm going to start reading the news every morning. I have an hour to kill before going off to school, so I might as well be productive and educate myself about the world.

The problem is that there are tons of news websites out there, but how do I pick the most well-rounded and informative one around? I really like The Daily Beast, it has a mixture of solid politics and some light-hearted articles for comic relief.

I know of stuff like NY Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, etc. What do you guys read?

Are you in California by any chance? www.rtumble.com is a decent gatherer for Ca politics and policy stuff.

For TV news, that is probably the best.

For newspapers, "The Times" and "The Post".

For magazines (well, they call themselves a newspaper actually), "The Economist".
