News Sources

The cartoonists, Mastroianni and Hart, don’t think much of Trump’s main source of news. And I agree with them. Andy and I spend a lot of money for investigative journalism, but none for cable TV.

Where do you get your news?

    We rarely watch “cable news” shows — usually only when there is some sort of significant news event, like the Boston Marathon bombing. We generally watch the NBC evening news and the local news (Little Rock) which we have recorded so we can zip through the advertising and, for the local, the segments we’re not interested in. Often, even when they call it “breaking news” on the evening news, it’s stuff I’ve already seen online.

    For online news, I’m subscribed to Google World News RSS feed, where I see a wide array of stories from all kinds of new sources (Reuters, Financial Times, Times of India, Voice of America, The Guardian, The Sidney Morning Herald, etc.).

    For current Washington politics, my “go to” source is a fellow by the name of Jamie Dupree. He is very non-political and balanced. I used to catch him on occasion on the radio, but that has been missing since last July as, disastrously, his voice has gone missing due to muscle tension dysphonia that has affected his larynx. I now see him on Twitter and read his reports on several sites, such as the Atlanta Journal Constellation http://jamiedupree.blog.ajc.com/

    I mainly get my news from the internet…
    I read the NY Times … and the Washington Post … and the Guardian in the U.K. and the Skimm (which linda recently told me about) I like it.
    It uses a multitude of different sources and links take you to the pertinent article.
    I also listen to NPR … as far as I can tell they seem to be fairly balanced.
    I often watch BBC nightly news America and every now and then I purposely listen to Fox News and CNN to see how they are sparring these days. and I read Huffington Post on occasion.
    all that said… however… sometimes I just have to take a news sabbatical.
    I grow weary of all the conflagration. then my curiosity gets the best of me again and i’m back! South Korea’s problems are interesting right now.

      I’m with you on The Guardian, New York Times, and Washington Post. And on getting most of my news from the internet. I like that much better than TV because it’s easier to pick and choose. And because I like being able to link to articles when sharing. Oh, yes, I started subscribing to Skimm too, thanks to Linda. We also get the Wall Street Journal, which is conservative but also rooted in reality.

  3. I read three newspapers (our local Times Colonist, the National Post, and the Globe and Mail). I watch and our own CBC mostly, and I spend hours on the Internet, subscribing to Washington Post and New York Times. I guess you would call me a news nut. Mind you, when I say “read”, there’s a whole lot of skimming going on!

      I know what you mean about skimming. 🙂 There’s not time for everything and it’s good to get ideas and info from a variety of sources.

    The Economist was a source that I subscribed to for a number of years, and still check into regularly. NPR used to be a commute companion, but I burnt out on them some years ago and don’t listen to anything. When I am traveling, the Wall Street Journal is next. Then I scan a lot of places looking for tidbits of interest including The Guardian, The BBC, Singapore’s Straits Times and others. If I find a topic of interest, I tend to do a separate search for articles, so random commentators are good. Often it requires some background reading. My big wish is that Trump, congress and the MSM could be cocooned off into a separate dimension of the internet so that I could find out what is happening in the rest of the universe.

    Mostly from the print media. I use that to source items online to share with friends.
