Default Favorite Source of News

So in light of the election, news, current events, and politics I thought I would ask what all your favorite news stations, magazines, shows, news people, online news sources etc are.

So basically, who do you like, trust, go to for your news.

Greg Palast is one. Gregg Easterbrook. Usually, though, I'll google and read several accounts, starting with the most local and timely and work my way forward from there. If it's political stuff, I try to find the origins -- the actual speech, etc., or I look at the records of the individual politicians. Most of the time their rhetoric doesn't match up very well with their records. Big shock, hmmm?

The Debka site is usually interesting, and it often breaks news weeks before it's seen in any of our more regular sources.

Online I usually stick to reddit, lol. Sometimes I'll peruse CNN, but their website is really annoying.

If I watch the news, I prefer Fox.

I tend to have msnbc/cnn on during the day. I also really really like Rachel Maddow and record her show daily.

For magazines I've been reading The Week for years which is kinda a compilation from all around the world of news articles on all subjects and does a lot of different views and takes on the same subject.

For Radio it's NPR and online it's pretty much anything. I look at google news a lot, different articles from all different sources that friends and pages post.

And for my fun news it's definitely Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

I read BBC News on my phone before classes to get a recap of world events and serious stuff. I love Anderson Cooper on CNN just because he's an awesome anchor. Jon Stewart is definitely my go-to for fun news as well, and politcal news. I watch Rachel Maddow with my dad when I'm at home, but that's more for entertainment, (though I really think she's brilliant).
