What is wrong with American sources?

I stopped caring a long time ago, whether I got the news today or tomorrow. You get a lot less spin and disinformation if you let the news simmer for a day before checking in on the news sources.

I usually listen to NPR in the morning and check the BBC website throughout the day. I have dozens of news feeds on my Facebook from Al Jazeera to my hometown newspaper. Vice News has some really good reporting from hotspots around the world. They're on the ground in Ukraine and I just read a somewhat snarky article about the attempted kidnapping of the Americans in Yemen that really didn't amount to much. Just don't get Vice News confused with Vice which is silly hipster crap most of the time.

American television news is a joke for the most part. No wonder most people don't have a clue what's happening in the world.

Daily Mail


Ok I'm kidding, that's just for its entertainment value. Generally BBC and Yle, sometimes the Guardian.

CBS, NBC, BBC, CCTV in English and then local online news sources depending where events have happened.

TV :
RT, France24 (better than expected), ARTE (pure news propaganda, worse than FoxNews, but very good for fiction and nonfiction),
Digital : : Daily Telegraph, Huffington Post (alway interesting to read the official opinion of the Oligarchy-meaning HP), various independent blogs

The Economist, mostly. And The New Yorker -- both in print.
