#SupportHeForShe Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
Local news from the local (Chicago) TV stations. Usually in small snippets in the morning or evening. I don't usually watch the whole broadcast.
National and International news from a news aggregator like Google. Many of their sources still lean strongly left ( ) but it's about the closest to balanced as I can find. I think it's important to see alternate perspectives.
However, as a rule I avoid the far left sources like Huffington Post, Salon, CNN... I can only tolerate so much BS.
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. ~ Ronald Reagan
It doesn't matter, just use multiple sources of [hopefully] different allegiances. I use NewsNow.co.uk online because it brings together news from a lot of different sources and it covers non first world countries in detail.
I like the No Agenda podcast, hosted by well-known PC Magazine columnist John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry (of MTV fame, and also claims to have invented the technology behind podcasting).
It's perhaps not my primary source of news, but what makes it unique is that they dig into the popular stories to show how all mainstream media twists everything to appease their advertisers and corporate sponsors.
It may come across as satire for some, but they discuss world events at enough length to keep abreast of what's going on.
