    Well?

    I get mine mainly from AlJazeera, CNN, and the BBC.

    Following the links from Google News mostly. Typically if a story is from a particular country I'll go read about it in that country's websites. Doesn't quite work for languages I can't speak, but still...it gives a more rounded view of what the story actually is.

    For TV it will normally be BBC News.

    This comes up monthly, but seeing as I'm 5 minutes into work and don't feel like being productive just yet -

    Mostly Google Reader, which has:

    - Engadget
    - Above the Law
    - BBC News
    - NYTimes (debating dumping since at least half their stuff is junk, but the rest makes up for it)
    - Top Stories/Google News

    Then for more foreign affairs, I tend to check out Aljazeera English, MSN, and Fox as well.

    Sports stick to CBSSports.com and Puck Daddy (Yahoo). Really dislike ESPN.com except for maybe their Big Ten sports bloggers when it's football/basketball season.

    BBC, I subscribe to The Economist, and read the Guardian, Telegraph and sometimes the New Statesman.

    I also subscribe to the Jamestown Foundation and the Moscow Times.

    The Irish Times and sometimes, (for coverage of Irish domestic/national issues), RTÉ (Irish state broadcaster, the chief radio station of which is especially good), and, I also pay attention to one particular current affairs programme on TV3 (an independent Irish TV station).

    That's pretty close to truth for me.

    I no longer watch TV, but become aware of some nice juicy issues via the anger of some MR members.

    It works well, and is a great time-saver.

    Also I guess this site somewhat, though only for Apple news. And I read ScienceDaily.com and Wired.com

    CNN.com and twitter. I love twitter as a news ticker. Once in a blue moon I'll check BBC but their mobile site sucks.

    Twitter.

    For instance, I just found out that Katie Holmes finally kicked Tom Cruise to the curb. :eek:

    Apparently - took her long enough, though I may fear for her. You know what they say about a Scientologist scorned....

    The Boston Globe and local 15 minutes of TV news in the morning for weather and traffic.

    But I'm really devastated that I missed the Katie Holmes thing.


    (Um, who is Katie Holmes??:confused:)

    She can once again wear heals.

    If she's swapping a Cruise for a Travolta, it's not much of an escape.
