What online news sources do you use?

I would just like to know where everyone likes to go for news, current events. etc.

I always like having a lot of different places to check out, some of my favorites are:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/
http://www.indymedia.org/ - I like this place because many large cities have their own sites you can access and see local articles, pictures, and accounts from what is going on
http://www.amnesty.org/
http://www.alternet.org/
http://www.cnn.com/

It's always good to share sources, so what are some of yours?

www.commondreams.org -- "An eclectic mix of politics, issues and breaking news with an emphasis on progressive perspectives that are increasingly hard to find with our corporate-dominated media." Posts articles from newspapers from around the world.

www.democracynow.org -- the best news coverage in the U.S., in my opinion. Amy Goodman is a national treasure.

And I like these two that you mentioned:

www.indynet.org
www.alternet.org

Indymedia - www.indymedia.org is one of the best for reading stories that are typically ignored by mainstream media.

BBC Online - www.bbc.co.uk/news/ - up to date, easy to understand and find info.

Guardian Online - www.guardian.co.uk - UK newspaper, theoretically on the 'left' usually has some good columnists writing for the paper.

Zmag - www.zmag.org - good for interesting analysis of the news.

Wow, joygirl, those websites are incredibly biased. Are you okay with getting your news through such a biased filter?

...because we all know there's absolutely no bias in the mainstream press, right?
