Where do you primarily get your news from?

I read the NYTimes and Google News.

I always have 4 news windows up - Boston Globe for local and sports, BBC for an international angle (sorta), NY Times and Washington Post. I read the Times as a hard copy on week days cause it's available free on campus. I get gossip and meta-media news and entertainment from Gawker. My screen name identifies me as a u2 fan.

Basically Spiegel.de and this forum.
I should read more newspapers, especially the Financial Times, but I'm too lazy and that takes so long.

New Zealand: Stuff.co.nz and the New Zealand Herald; when I'm actually in New Zealand, I read The Dominion though it's not as good as it used to be. If in the South Island, I pick up The (Christchurch) Press or the Otago Daily Times.

Australia: Primarily SBS, both on TV and their news website. I also read The Age. To hell with anything on news.com.au and its associated newspapers!

International: Along with the aforementioned Kiwi/Aussie sites, I also tend to favour the BBC.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

did that dude call you last night too?
"we're conducting a survey, it will only take a few minutes"
took 20 minutes!!!!!!!

anyway, after most major news network web sites decided to exploit my campus tragedy by plastering scary pictures of the shooter pointing his gun in my face ALL OVER the front page of their stupid web sites, i don't go to those sites anymore.

so i just mainly get my news from bbc, democracy now, and here.

TV- mostly Fox News, but of course I occasionally check all the others

Internet- Fox News, CNN, occasionally Drudge Report for some of the more obscure stories.

CNN, MSNBC, NBC Nightly News, washingtonpost.com, NYtimes.com, as well as various local papers.

How could I forget, I also read BBC and occasionally some of the British papers.
