I've been wondering about what the best news sources are, so here is a poll for you all. Currently I read cnn.com, 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 Salon.com and Time.com'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 listen to a bunch of news podcasts and also read some news-related blogs.

I often read the "Today's papers" article on slate.com for this kind of thing. Also, cnn.com 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 slate.com, 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 eschatonblog.com for political/economic news, talkingpointsmemo.com 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
