    Print: I read Arizona Republic every morning, which is pure crap. Most of it I've already read on the internet a day or two before. Whatever town I am in when I am away from home I always read the local paper and USA Today.

    I used to subscribe to the Atlantic Magazine, but I just don't have time to read it as I'd like.

    Television: I do not watch or listen to any broadcast television news. None, never. It is sensational and worthless. It isn't news. Radio, as above, only Radio Canada and BBC on SiriusXM.

    You might say I'm 35+
    Risky...

    I'm really gotten attached to SiriusXM's BBC World News...and occasionally listen to Radio-Canada. I play them in the background online a lot. I nearly always listen to BBC World in my truck or SUV (well, when I'm by myself)...other wise it's "CLASSIC ROCK on 7".

    I like to read The Economist and BBC News on the net everyday. I read a little of Nate Silver's stuff and I'm glad that he's back to 538 instead of NYT. I subscribe to Scientific American on the net. I get Science News Magazines at home.

    I'm sick of pundit radio and TV. Their brains are like warts on a gnat's ass.

    For national and international news, or if I want to look up something specific, I use Google News. I get my local news mainly on the radio, though not intentionally.

    I'm 29.

    The Beeb on SiriusXM is excellent, innit?

    I too am soooooo feckin sick of pundit radio and TV. Can't stand it. I like the way Radio Canada does its news. It is more straight reporting than I am used to hearing on American radio stations. I'm beyond tired of cute and bombastic "news".

    American "news personalities" are part of what has made American "news" reporting unpalatable and worthless. How far can American market driven infotainment, lightly masked as "news", be from having "gasp tracks" and "cry tracks" and "scream tracks" played in the background to tart up "news" stories? Won't be long from now, I suspect. And besides who the hell wants a "personality" to read the news, all perfect and cute. **** that! Of course it all makes sense in a nation that thrives on fake reality shows on TeeVee to the point that the fake reality stars are quoted by feckin elected officials in Washington.

    The Economist online. It never occurred to me. Excellent! I'm going to monitor that for a while. Thanks.

Everything is on Hulu, Netflix, or I just stream/torrent. So I get my news pretty exclusively from the internet which is to say usually Google News aggregation of articles related to a term I search or just the BBC news app in the morning.

    I'd also say I'm not that atypical of people my age that I know. In fact I'd say its rare for me to run into someone my age who watches CNN, FOX, MSNBC except those who watch certain shows or commentators.

    With all of the passion about which network is more biased or best it got me wondering if even unscientifically I could find out if there was an age gap on this on DP.
    I listen to Fox News early in the morning when I'm dressing for work; other than that, I rely on the Internet and have 'scrips to WaPo, the La Times, NY Times, the Telegraph (UK) and etc. My News folder in Favorites has links to just about every major publication online.

    My homepage for over a decade has been the Drudge Report not only because it had continual updates, but also because it links to major publications globally (English versions). I also check Politico, Mediaite, Daily Caller frequently as well as local sources. I'd check Instapundit too, but I have a friend who's a devotee of Glenn Reynolds, and she always forwards me the great stuff.

    Shamefully, I access a wide variety of news sources daily and more, including the Daily Mail. I love the deliciously low.

    In 2014 there is no reason not to access a wide variety of sources in addition to the fishwraps of record. I think that if you're genuinely interested in facts, it's irresponsible to rely on only one or two sources. And if either of them is on a comedy network, I think that's just sad.

    Re: Where Do You Get Your News? (And how old are you?)

    Your poll only allows you to make one choice. Anyone who rely on one source for gathering their news are uninformed and using the internet, one can be misinformed.

    I subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, L.A. Times and the Orange County Register.

    I read the San Diego Tribune, Washington Times and Post, and a few local papers on line.

    The Drudge Report.

    Local news, K-Cal and KTLA for police car chases.

    At least one hour of KABC and KNBC local news.

    One of the national evening news programs at night.

    Fox News Channel and CNN. Also Fox Business News.

    One local talk radio program, John and Ken on KFI. They cover stories that get little coverage.

    For political news, it's on line, Real Clear Politics, The Politico and The Hill.

    And numerous e-mail news letters like USNI News, Center for Immigration Studies, Stratfor, Defense Link, etc.

    Car: Sirius has some GREAT channels. Gives you a ton of options, hear all sides.
    Television: I don't view any T.V. sources as reliable. It's fun to watch professional liars though. Especially MSNBC, those guys really make it up as they go.
    Online: This is the majority of my news. Tons of truly unbiased information, but you need to sift through the junk.

    I voted "other" because there's no "all of the above" option.
