I've been wondering about what the best news sources are, so here is a poll for you all. Currently I read, listen to NPR, watch the NBC nightly news, and don't read any print news (unless you count the "Current in Carmel" flyer we get in our mailbox for free). I don't read/watch/listen to any of them super-frequently, but they are my regular sources. I'm wondering if there is something better I should be reading/watching/listening to.

[Poll #1380727]

The Economist online is free.

I pipe a bunch of things into Google Reader, including and's top stories. I also read things that other people share there.

Your list sounds rather well informed to me. I just read google news and the local paper online (with occasional NPR in the van pool). Plus some blogs for news on specific topics.

I often read the "Today's papers" article on for this kind of thing. Also, seems to have gone way downhill in the past few months or so.

Yeah, I haven't been too happy with CNN lately, thus the poll. I should start looking at, I know a lot of people do.

I read Al Jazeera online also, and listen to campus radio which can contain news. I <3 The Economist and The Atlantic Monthly (I think now just "The Atlantic") for print news/culture.

I also read The Guardian, Reuters (UK and US), AP, and a few Japanese newspapers (mainly Japan Times Online, but also Mainichi and occasionally Asahi).

CNN has been pretty crappy recently.

Print news, other: The Week is a great news source. It summarizes all the major stories (national and international) from the past week and how they were covered.

I don't get a lot of news that's not filtered through the liberal media bias. :) On the radio, I let my liberal talk show hosts (usually Stephanie Miller, sometimes Ron Reagan) explain everything to me. Well that's sort of tongue-in-cheek. I don't listen to those shows *for* news, I just like hearing them talk *about* the news. I do listen to news segments on the talk stations, but not as a tool for acquiring news, just incidentally as it happens to be on. Ok that was verbose enough.

whats a few months late

when I could afford cable I used to really enjoy countdown<->rachel maddow with dailyshow/colbert report to round things off

lately I mostly read for political/economic news, is more complete but eschaton really does capture the most important stuff

when I am in my truck during drivetime I'll listen to npr, but they are frustratingly mealymouthed and suprisingly conservative
