So..... Where does everybody find out what is going on in the world?
TT and Drudgereport.com
I look into the eyes of the people I see in the street and elsewhere, for the most part.
Economist and local paper
local news channels
cable networks (cnn, fox, msnbc) I try and share time among the three.
90% online i'd say. The BBC, then I read the next mornings newspapers online the night before.
Sadly, as an American, I have to get much of my news of what is going on in the USA from the BBC.
Thanks for mentioning the BBC, almost forgot.
Mostly from yahoo and msn news.
Very good point, and we certainly need the BBC to be in the know of things going on outside the US.
If you're lucky many cable providers do have BBC "America" lol. However it is usually just Gordon Ramsey and Top Gear and Dr. Who, however I cannot complain with that. I also really enjoy Reuters and the New York Times (which had some of the best election coverage IMO). NPR is excellent as well, however listening to them on the radio puts me to sleep. To be quite honest, if it's just about regular "news" it's basically the same amongst all channels, however one must be careful and avoid the punditry that plagues the airwaves these days.
BBC CNN SKY RTL Cspan ABC CBS MediaWatch TheRealNews.com
WSJ BloombergNews Charlie Rose Alternet.com The NY Times
Der Spiegel Science Nature Scientific American The Lancet
Stockholmresiliencecenter Frankfurter Algemeine DemocracyNow
FOX SKY The Economist YoungTurks Bill Moyers Rush Limbaug
UR Berlingske Tidene and a few others
I use a really great iphone app called News 360
You get all the latest news and for each subject you have access to all newspapers website with the related article
Very complete and saves time too as you can see how an info is brought from different point of views
And twitter of course
Ok, thanks for the suggestion.
Do they have all of the ones i mentioned...? Some of them are quite democratic and free in that they are sponsored by viewers and or subscriptions more so than ads.
That can allow for great indepth kinds of journalism and broader views.
I mostly visit TheOnion.com
Weekend Update and the Daily Show...
Dont' laugh, it's more accurate than these guys:
The Pentagon is on top of the most important stuff happening.
Quarterly Defense Review.
Admiral Titley explains what is happening at 1.25
That's never been a problem.......
True.. here's some news along those lines.
I get my news from an unbiased source......The 700 Club.
Well, for any subject, they propose a selection of 4-5 papers and an exhaustive list so you can pick which one you want to read. It's more than 3.000 sources each time actually
I still prefer the daily newspaper.
Ok, sounds good.
i will check it out.
Its key so as to NOT get fooled.
Here is an example what can ahppen if you only get your news form one source.
I felt like I had no choice but to switch to xinhuanet.com once South China Morning Poast started charging online subscription fees.
radio, courrier international... and diverse sources on the net, depending on the mood and the topics to investigate.
I am sure rogerfederer.com links you to plenty of reliable news sources, depending on your mood.
Most reliable news source imo
I have found Pox News to be the most reliable and unbiased of all sources.
I try not to get any news at all, if possible.
Drudge is literally one of the few places to get the ACTUAL news...
I get them from mostly online sources. I'm still in school so my professors are insistent that we use official websites like whitehouse dot gov and stuff like that. Though there's nothing wrong with a news channel if you can distinguish facts from politically-motivated garbage!
The Ed Show and The Oreilly Factor.
What methods do you use to see what is what when you do it?? i.e. separate facts from disinformation?
Mac App BBC news. No BS or entertainment. I want news
how does it feel to be shocked?
shouldn't live in the bubble buddy...
Separate names with a comma.
