New York Times
CNN
Washington Post (I get the print version, but check online late in the day for any updates)

and when something is going on in a specific location, or when I'm going to be traveling to a specific location I am not familiar with, I search for online newspapers in that location.

Aside from the mainstream, which are only for purely fictional entertainment value, Slashdot and UnknownNews are MUST reads!

/. is cool but it tends to be geared more towards real geeks (i.e. ones that use Linux)...at least the comments seem to lean that way.

Yes, it has a very pro-Linux and pro-GPL vibe.

I've always found that interesting, though, as an OS/2 + Mac + mainframe geek. Some slashdotters don't appreciate that UNIX has not always been the center of the software universe, so they can be fun to stir up (or correct).

All geeks, much like lawyers and sports fans, are easy and fun to wind up. It doesn't take much to get them frothing...

I use Twitter as a news feed - I follow CNN, CNBC, The Economist, local news sources, Wall Street Journal, the White House, Huff-Po, TV Guide, Financial Times, Chelsea Handler, Mr. and Mrs. Demi Moore, rww, New York Times, Kirstie Alley, Conan, Craig Ferguson, Xbox, Slate, Texts from Last Night, Funny or Die, Southwest Airlines, Meeting Boy, S*** my dad says, Recession Wire, Freakonomics, People Magazine, Red Cross, several local news sources and others. I found it's easier to do that than click around to different websites.
