I prefer to read it on the internet, because, if it's interesting or relevant to me, I can quickly search for other sources and more information.

I don't like watching videos on the internet at all. I like to read the news.

Any source without obvious bias-but that is nearly all internet.

Another nod to the internet.

When in the car, I have 2 pre-set news talks stations. One is conservative and the other is liberal. It's always interesting to hear the opposing points and views.

I like Google News because I can see the same story as presented by different news sources. Amazing how differently the same event can be portrayed.

I voted internet. It is just easier that way. Get it all on my iPhone so its instant and with me everywhere I go.

I have:

CNN - National and World news
Reuters - National and World news
KNBC TV - Local station here in Los Angeles
KABC TV - Local station here in Los Angeles
KTLA TV - Local station here in Los Angeles
Yahoo
Boxing news
BBC
Aljazeera
Bloomberg - for financials

iPhone (via internet) is by far the best way to read/get the news.

I'm the same way, Erratikmind. I want to hear both sides of the issues. How else can you make up your mind on an issue?

CNN. Yahoo. Then discussion boards so I can see what other people are talking about. For things that interest me, I prefer source material. As in, if there is an article on CNN/Yahoo about education outomces. I skip the article and read as much of the study that I can. More often than not (as in always) the "journalist" writing the article has some agenda to push and you get the real picture reading the source.

Yes, you are absolutely correct, MissSoBelle. There have been quite a few instances where I have changed my attitude on issues, once having heard both sides.
