I thought this might be an interesting topic, given the increasing concern over freedom of the press in the USA, and over biased news coverage of the Ukraine crisis.

Sources may include both mainstream media and alternative media, legacy media and digital media; newspapers, journals, television/radio channels, social media, blogosphere etc.

The Guardian, BBC for the most part. I don't read any American sources anymore. If there's nothing on TV, I tune to CCTV English and watch that instead, or CNN as background noise

Die Presse (newspaper, that I subscribed to a couple of years ago) is what I read in the morning. I sometimes read Neue Zürcher Zeitung or Die Zeit at university.
During the day I usually check out the web pages of spiegel.de, diepresse.com and derstandard.at.
I occasionally visit the web pages of The Guardian and The Telegraph, usually for opinion pieces on the EU.
Other than that, I really enjoy the "Foreign Affairs" magazine and I sometimes watch the evening news or some other political shows on ORF.

I can't watch mainstream american news channels any more. They're either over the top biased or laden with punditry and frivolity.

I actually watch RT for news on world affairs. I know it is propaganda, but I actually trust it more than NBC, Fox, BBC and so on to represent a fairer dissemination of current events.

From smoke to smother Seriously, I'd stop watching 24h news altogether and read a quality newspaper.

I form my opinions based upon all manner of sources beyond the mainstream, but I look to RT for the newsfeeds and alerts. I appreciate the irony, but we live in a borked world where whistleblowers flee from the supposed land of the free to Russia to escape persecution, smear, character assassination and possible actual assassination by the powers that be.

I used to read The UK Dailymail but I recently quit reading news altogether.

Asia Times is pretty good for political analysis - they don't limit themselves to Asia. Market Oracle is good for financial analysis. In both cases, the editors seem willing to let their many contributors say anything they want so you get a wide variety of opinions which is always valuable.
