What news source(s) do you usually use, and why?

If I hear people having a lot of conversations about something which happened, that tends to hold my interest for a moment. Watching the news is designed to fill you with fear and anxiety. I avoid the news as much as possible.

That depends on where you get you news from. Sure if there is a major storm on the way all news outlets will tell you what not to do, all the ways it can kill you and whether or not you should evacuate.

But some place relay information that can be useful on subjects that can affect you.

Since their exposure of the NSA Scandals, as well as the Murdoch wiretapping scandals, I keep to the Guardian.

It's often TV news which seems so evil to me.

I don't watch the news. Too depressing. I can enjoy a few amusements from The Daily Show from time to time, however.

I watch The Young Turks on YouTube. I like their unbiased views on everything. If there's a 'Breaking Story', then I tend to turn to CNN. But I'll watch TYT later on in the evening.

NPR when I have the chance. Sometimes NHK to keep up with Japan. Google News for pretty much everything else, lol.

On the train, i pick up what's there. Metro, The FT, The Guardian. I subscribe to The Economist. Most alerts I get from reuters and I enjoy reading some online blogs. Daily mail and msn are also fun to read, it cracks me up. BBC sports i'd check out and stuff lol.

BBC, Al Jazeera and ZeroHedge. They're not into sensationalism and would deliver the news as it is.

The BBC and The Times newspaper. The BBC does good reports on the various occurrences happening in the world and The Times newspaper is an enjoyable read when the subject is about a topic that I am interested in.
