Where do you get your news?
What site do you go to when you want to check the news?

I was going to MSN but they changed the format and I don't like it. They also seem to have dumbed everything down. Most articles that you click on make you then click out to a dozen other places to find the story.

I just want somewhere that I can get the highlights and be able to read further if I want to. Not just teaser headlines backed up by crap.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

N...ews?

But seriously; I tend to rely on my Facebook feed for news, particularly from groups like The Secular Party of Australia and Atheist Foundation of Australia for politics, and religion, the RDFfRaS page for science news (along with I Fucking Love Science, but their content seems to have been slipping...)

Anything I don't see there I pick up from podcasts, posts here, or the TV.

RE: Where do you get your news?
I hop around to a bunch of places, although I usually just check CNN everyday to see if the world blew up while I was sleeping. Once I realize its ok outside my door that day, I usually check 2 local stations to see if there will be any problems with the hubby on his commute and if kids need an umbrella.

couple cups of coffee later washington post, huff post, al jezeera, bbc, cnn just for the comment section (they can be hysterical sometimes), Nbc, abc


thats on a boring surfing on the internet day, I usually swing by postsecret and tmz too. Blush

RE: Where do you get your news?
I mostly listen to podcasts. Wait Wait Don't Tell Me is a surprisingly good, and hilarious, recap of the week's news. I also listen to NPR's Here & Now, BBC's World Service Global News, and The Council on Foreign Relations podcast for more in-depth discussions.

Otherwise, like FT, I rely on Facebook for a lot of immediate news. I used to check Huff Post regularly, but it's been a while.

Oh I also see stuff on here sometimes.

I guess I could look at the pictures and guess the rest. Tongue

1. https://www.facebook.com/
2. https://www.youtube.com/
3. http://www.theskepticsguide.org/
4. http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/
5. http://www.abc.net.au/insiders/
6. http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/

The last two are actual news sites! Insiders is a program covering Australian politics, while mediawatch covers the media itself in Australia.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
