What are your news sources?

And do you make an effort to listen to opposing views?

  • I listen to NPR, read Yahoo News, and our local paper online. I'll also peruse the Wall Street Journal and New York Times on-line. I do try to find out "both sides" of the bigger news stories, especially if I'm passionate about the subject.

  • All of them - news sources, that is. Not pundits who like to hear themselves talk. With the internet, there is no excuse to not read 4 or 5 versions of the same story before making up your mind.

  • NPR, CNN, Yahoo News & The Daily Show...I know the Daily Show isn't a "real" news source but I learn a lot from it and then I do more research on the story on my own.

  • I read local news and national news online and sometimes if I get control of the TV I try and watch on TV too. I go to various sources and yes I read opposing view points then my own but usually just to see whats being said. I have yet to find an opposing news source that changes my mind on what I believe.

  • I get a combination of BBC, NPR and Comedy Central. I've attempted to consume Fox, but it gives me heartburn.

  • NPR, CNN, BBC, MSNBC, Huffington Post for the most part, but I also read local news sites, national and local newspaper sites (e.g. The Tennessean) or specialty websites with things like science or archaeological news. I read or listen to FOX occasionally, but I find it very biased and annoying. Typically I will only watch/read news from Fox if someone else is watching it, someone sends me a link (or posts one), or if I'm just curious how their story compares to a similar story on another site. Generally I prefer NPR as the most unbiased IMO, but I like to get news from multiple sources.
