Some of you guys in the US should definitely give the BBC a try for world news. In terms of journalistic standard and telling the news rather than intepreting the news, they're probably one of the, if not THE, best.

We do! On NPR (which is our national public radio) they play the BBC world news daily.

It is a fantastic source, I must agree.

And it's all "Because of the unique way it's funded". I wonder if they have ads on the world service? They don't on the website do they? Makes me feel proud, I'm helping to bring decent news to the rest of the world. [cue national anthem, fist to chest and tear in eye]

All over the net. Reuters, AP, E, MSNBC, FOX and a plethora of others plus local news in my area. Whenever there's a story on the BBC I catch that too. Great reporting there.

If you love news on the net, you should definitely go to Encyclopedia Dramatica. They're very fair and balanced over there and don't fuck around.

Er, anything without a blatant conservative bias? Most of that isn't news, it's echochambering. Just like Alex Jones isn't news.

Well talk radio is pretty biased I will admit. But that is more entertainment than news for me.

You think the weather channel is conservative bias? (;

Anyways, almost every major cable news channel is biased in some way. I mine as well watch one that I agree with. And it's not like that conflicts with the major current events. I still get the news no matter what kind of "spin" is put on it.

It's not like my views come from what I have seen on Fox News. I never even really watched it until just last year when the election was taking off.

I would like to add Create Debate to the list because there is usually a debate about every current event. (;

Whenever I watch the news on TV, it's usually FOX or ABC. FOX has a hot female anchor. ;)

But I don't really have that much of a preference... And I never check online news sources. It's not that I don't want to, it's just that I have a lot of other websites to look at online. I play server games, I'm an avid youtube watcher, I use social networking, and of course there's good old CD.

I used to read New York Times, but the bias mixed with boringness turned me off. at least MSNBC is exciting (sort of).

No cable. And I don't use the internet for reading news. Too much reading I'd have to do online. I'd rather read a book if I'm going to read.

Well, I sometimes watch Fox "News" and when I get tired of their propaganda I balance things out by watching MSNBC "News" and their propaganda. By watching the two propaganda stations talk about stuff I am better at finding the moderate answer because it often is somewhere in the middle.

On the internet I go to the Drudgereport and I use to go to the Huffingtonpost, but I got tired of their bullshit.

Youtube is good for news as it is happening but a lot of it is too unconfirmed to be considered accurate. I find articles via Google and sometimes even Wiki has some good stuff.

I think I'm the only 16-year-old with BBC as my homepage.

I listen to a daily coMedy radio show, and they have news and such. I get it podcasted into my phone and my phone goes everywhere. I have docking stations in my bathroom, and car.

I also love NPR, because I hate BS.

I read the LA times in the morning at work. I get a free copy, and I have a free hour usually around 6am.

CNN sends breaking news and articles with certain keywords to me as email alerts.

And about every other day I'll catch the daily show.

Oh.... And TMZ.

I stopped watching regular tv news and newspapers long time ago because it is all government media. I only believe in the news on the net because they are not as controlled and biased as they are on regular tv/newspapers and this is the same for any country in the world. Don't forget that today's greatest weapon is the media (or simply said "pity"), not some nuclear bomb. Today's media supports whichever side it's own respective government sides with. Too much propaganda.

I like to read the same news from more than just one source, compare it to others to determine which one seems to make sense and is factual, not fictional.......and most of all, neutral.

Side: various places

I get my news from The Huffington Post because this news website gets the news fast and this website is reliable with their news stories.
