It's where I go. It's not a 'source', but has many I can go to.

In my opinion, anything from the US is probably not very credible.


Quoting Billiejeens:

 


You clearly know that Drudge is not a source.


It is by far the best place to access clickable sources though, and often without knowing whose news site you will be going to.



 


Quoting kcangel63:

That's why I like Drudge Report. It's a collection of the biggest news events.


Quoting Mommy_of_Riley:

I think watching/reading only one source is a bad idea. Every single one is bias one way or another.



I watch a mix of HLN, CNN, BBC, & Fox. I read the WSJ, NY Times, local papers, etc.

I prefer news sites like nasa.gov, the-scientist.com, sciencenews.org, sciencedaily.com, web.mit.edu/newsoffice, phys.org, dailygalaxy.com, apa.org/news, nsf.gov/news, or anthropology-news.org. I prefer science and technology news over all of the other stuff. But as far as non-science and tech stuff? Christian Science Monitor is one of the best I've seen as far as impartiality goes. It's funny because it's technically run by the church, but it's one of the most respected news sources around-- they're just good at separating personal bias from their reporting. I wish more stations (like Fox and MSNBC) could take a leaf out of CSM's book.

I don't think it's wise to get ones news from any single source as most have some kind of bias. Better to check out a variety to get the whole picture. I like DU because they have user posted articles from all over the web but don't go there much lately due to the hyperpartisan comments and op-eds. We usually watch the local FOX affiliate's morning show which has news and entertainment. I like McClatchy as well, they seem pretty independent.

Don't watch cable news much but sometimes see something on Stewart, Colbert or Maher and use that as a starting point to research it. No, I don't use any as a news source but many times they, or their guests, will bring up something I haven't heard about so give me a jumping off point.

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

Bahahahaha. Cuz Drudge is so much better. LMFAO, you should go on tour.

The news on DU is from a variety of sites all over the web. Even Drudge, FOX, The Blaze..among others. The op-eds and comments are a different story.

I read a lot.  Wall Street Journal( WSJ), Drudge Report, local newspaper(TCH), ocasionally the New York Times, Washington Post, Weekly Standard magazine, Commentary magazine, and I watch BBC, Fox news, local CBS, and listen to NPR and talk radio.  I find that if I watch MSNBC my brain starts to bleed.  :)

Drudge doesn't have any op-eds or commentary it simply has clickable links - c'mon Friday this is the easy stuff.
