    I'd like to know where your get your "news" (the serious news, which for me, as I much as I love sports, it doesn't count as serious news). Since I got the 'net on my computer, I usually don't watch the news on 10 pm each weeknight (which, by the way, does come in English). I usually go to the BBC's website (www.bbc.co.uk), since I think that's a great news website. I also take a lot at the independent media, such as AlterNet (www.alternet.org) and the The Nation (www.thenation.com), since I think they're good sites for news, and I can hear about things not picked up by the mainstream media.

    I'd still say those are pretty mainstream. Some forums have great news, check out 'media traders' over here:

    www.guerrillanews.com/forum

    also:

    www.propagandamatrix.com

    Meh... can't be fucked to type out a hundred links.

    Go here http://www.konformist.com/ and look towards the bottom, you'll have all the underground links you'll need. Enjoy, and don't let your brain explode :D

    But i'd advise checking out the first forum as you have the ability to post anonymously concerning any of the cited sources. Cheers

    I get my news mostly from google and newstran.

    My morning routine lately has been to check cnn, fox news, and drudge. I also listen to the news on the radio in the morning.

    Then as time permits, I go to google and newstran and research the stories that interest me.

    google eh?

    www.google-watch.org

    I have a lot more websites but i'd rather let much more capable and time-free people do the hard work for me at: www.guerrillanews.com/forum ---> Media-traders

    of course, there are some psychos on there, but don't mind them. They tend to stay in the conspiratorial section. ;)

    When I'm eating, I usually watch the news channels. If I watch TV, I flip through the news. I don't get my news from online, don't trust it. Research online is good, but not news.

    i try to get it from a variety of sources, try to get different perspectives on the same story if possible. i don't trust reporters to keep a neutral stance, so on the major topics, i try to get more than one view. i don't like being given a skewed and limited concept of what's going on, that leads to flawed logic.
