    What online news source do you use?

    So I ask this because I often find myself wandering around on news sites trying to waste time at work, and wonder which news sites people like most.

    Christian Science Monitor. - csmonitor. com

    I find it to be the most even handed in coverage.

    Re: What online news source do you use?

    I use CNN.com but I'm tired of it... too many "headline" stories that remind me of FOX News. I just want pure information, and have been trying nytimes.com.

    I used to like google news but they recently changed their layout and it's worse off.

    Re: What online news source do you use?

    I follow a bunch of different news outlets on twitter, so whichever shows up there first is the one that I go to.

    Re: What online news source do you use?

    I read everything through an RSS reader.

    Get most of my "headline" coverage from CNN, BBC, KCCI, The Daily Beast Cheatsheet, and the Des Moines Register.

    Without getting too political, for somewhat non-partisan opinion and more in-depth articles, I like to read The Economist daily blogs (in particular Democracy in America, Lexington's Notebook and Free Exchange) and ProPublica.

    I find the call letters of the station reporting this story to spell out a word that is strangely appropriate here.

    Re: What online news source do you use?

    You gotta check out good ole' Drudgereport once in awhile!

    As with an earlier poster, I get most through RSS feeds. Mine are set to my iGoogle home page & "Feeds" tab on my browser. All the local TV stations, the Reggie, some local blogs, etc.
