    How do you read the news?

    I am interested in how people get their information. *You can select multiple options.

    Do you believe everything you read, listen to, or see from your preferred sources of media? Let me summarize my process a little bit.

    For Breaking News I use a great website and even better app properly named, “Breaking News.” They are a great group of editors and seasoned news reporters and an off-shoot startup from NBC. If that alienates you than by all means don’t use it, but you’ll be left out. I get instant notifications on my phone from specific issues I care about from International Wars to news about corporate mergers. The instant they happen. No other News app works this good! Plus they track official accounts of these things on social media as well. The only downside to Breaking News is that populist stories and talking head outrages are not often reported. Unless the talking heads themselves break the news story. This however, is also a blessing because it’s a no-nonsense version of The Drudge Report.

    That’s the reason why I often use what I like to call the timeline methodology to track news events. If I see stories about immigration popping up in my news feed on social media or even the breaking news app, I immediately try to track down the origin of the story. Ironically 100% of the time, the origin is a mainstream media source! Despite anti-MSM critics.

    What are my Mainstream Media Sources? NBC, ABC, CBS, Local Newspapers, AP, CNN, BBC, and Fox News. I also use various tech news sites and Yahoo for my technology/corporate/economic news. Once I find the origin of the story I check which other sources followed up on it or linked to it. This is quite easy to do and can be done within half an hour of hard research.

    What CT Sources do I use? The Daily Paul, AboveTopSecret, The DailySheeple, Infowars, The Drudge Report, and Social Media like Twitter and Facebook posts.

    If I see more stories and baseless claims about a certain topic like the economy crashing or the end of the world coming from the CT sources instead of the MSM (which is often). I usually end up talking about it here on the site or on my blog. That basically is all there is to my method.

    I also listen to Z100 and WOR but that's purely for entertainment and hardly get any news out of them without hearing about it first from other sources.

    I generally don't read local stories from international places. So therefore I don't read the far eastern press. However, I would stay away from RT. Not sure if that is far eastern.

    I use many of the same sources you do. For some reason I find myself getting most news from MSNBC, but I also draw from other sources. Local news I get from our ABC affiliate in NH and also the Boston channels. For national news I look to Fox or MSNBC, with some NPR and on occasion, CNN. I get my business news from Fox Business or Bloomberg. I like the BBC for international news.

    I never pay attention to conspiracy theories.

    I think it's telling how many people are NOT responding to this thread. I wonder why so many are afraid to participate.
