I like, in order:

Washington Post: Breaking News, World, US, DC News & Analysis

Latest US news, world news, sport and comment from the Guardian | guardiannews.com | The Guardian

Business & Financial News, Breaking US & International News | Reuters.com

Breaking News | True Activist

DRUDGE REPORT 2013®

Breaking News Headlines: Business, Entertainment & World News - CBS News

If I'm really bored, I'll sometimes read the Daily Mail for their human interest stories. Their actual news stories though are often filled with errors, so I don't bother clicking on anything serious or important on that site; I don't trust them to get all the details correct. Honestly, it's very hit or miss with them.

i love Al Jazeera (Youtube news also) and RT (Russian Times on youtube) and been hooked to Drudge Report since 2005. The first two i really love because they give you a subjective view of things and show news stories many of our outlets basically refuse to cover. MPT is awesome also. I watched their newscast for a whole summer, when i only had one channel, great memories of that

Thanks for all the great ideas! I repped all of you i could

FYI -WaPo began a fee on 17 june. However it lets me read 20 articles for free per month-I'm guessing its because I am a local.

I am still frustrated with local investigative news sources- patches here are mostly repackaged and bare bones WaPo reports. I will stick with the local TV news reports on the internet as suggested.

I just came back here to correct my last post, since apparently WaPo recently started charging and I didn't realise that....I'm in MI and get 20 free articles, too. I ran out of mine on July 4.

I prefer the NYT for national news and opinion so I will probably resume paying for that.

My local newspaper is absolutely terrible and TV news stations around here aren't much good either.

Check your local radio and television websites for free local news--that is where I get most of my local news. Our local newspaper, however, does let you read one article for free and then you are asked to subscribe.

You could always just clear your cookies when you get close to your article limit for the Washington Post. It starts your article count over; you can view unlimited articles as long as you clear your cookies before/when you read 20 news stories. That's what I do for any news site that tries to limit views.

I also broke down and made a twitter account for breaking news. News travels faster on social media, and you can hear about it before CNN or whatever large news co. gets a detailed article up on their site. Twitter's actually a great place to hear about things, because sometimes large news companies like CNN and CBS don't report on things b/c they are affiliated w/ other companies or people that don't want certain events made public. Kind of like how you never really hear much about Monsanto from big US news sources. Alternative news media is great.
