Infowars only.

No, seriously: BBC, YLE, SVT (Finnish and Swedish equivalents), Helsingin Sanomat, The Guardian, Al-Jazeera.

I follow our tabloids for live feeds which are actually quite good.

I sometimes just google search <<nation>> news.

That gets me in the ballpark, usually.

No positive mention of the blogosphere or alternative media? I'm surprised.

I have yet to find a blog/alternative news website that's:

(A) not only repeating what's on mainstream media or
(B) just posting whacko news.

It seems that there is so much bias in all news that it's hard to weed out the bull.

Still, the mind wants to be curious.

Meanwhile, on CNN:

CNN places Eastern Ukraine in Pakistan

Now maps like this start to make a little more sense.


Americans identify Ukraine on a map of the world

BBC radio, which I get on XM Radio, is excellent. They cover stories on parts of the world that the U.S. news stations never cover.

BBC news website is also good. Like their coverage of health & science, as well.

NPR (National Public Radio) has some very good news & discussion programs. Nice to hear people discuss things, rather than scream at each other.

I feel that most cable news stations (i.e. MSNBC, Fox) are really editorials, not news.

The only TV News service I ever watch is SBS.

Special Broadcasting Service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I occasionally read the local Courier Mail, its some times OK for a bit of local news, its a News Corp Rag however so its not much good at the international stuff.
