    5. Internet news sites
    6. Internet social media

    9. Newspapers
    10. Other

    Multiple options available.
    Al Jazeera
    BBC
    Reuters
    RT
    The Guardian

    These were the news sites I was left with after eliminating those that featured
    1)headlines about which celebrity showed side-boob
    2)headlines that were questions, e.g. "He said WHAT to Obama???"
    3)articles that were advertisements packaged as news, e.g. "Angry citizens killing each other in the streets over release of new iphone."

    Chain letters from my right-wing friends who have been convinced America is on the path to Shiria law under the leadership of an illegal alien who despite being a devout Wahhabist, supports same-sex marriage and reportedly eats bacon every morning. Lol

    Actually, I wake up with early morning local TV news followed by NBC's Today Show. Sometimes I watch GMA instead of Today. If I'm home early enough, I watch NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. If nothing good is on TV, later in the evening I go between CNN and MSNBC; mostly CNN. Election Nights and breaking news, NBC. I have all the local TV news apps on my phone and get alerts when news breaks. I also have the CNN, USA Today and Fox News Apps and get alerts on my phone from those as well. If I get an alert I look online for more details when possible.

    If I want fancy pictures or obvious news reporting - the major sources...but the farther from Americans sources, the better (they have almost all become worse then useless, imo).

    If I want actual news reporting, I have to go hunting for it...and the farther off the beaten path, the better.

    I almost NEVER believe ANYTHING a major news source says until I have verification from an unbiased source.


    BTW, imo, if you get most of your news from ANY major American news cast...you probably do not understand what is really going on.

    Yes. I figure if anything is of noted importance, or particularly controversial, it's certain to be posted here.

    Re: Where do you primarily get your news/information?

    When I watch the news on television, 90% of the time I watch the Fox News Channel. I started watching Fox News in 2000 when I first heard about them (I was living overseas when Fox News started so I didn't even know they existed until I moved back to the United States in 2000). I also watch CNN occasionally (partly because I know someone that works at CNN...he pretty much goes wherever the President goes).

    I also read various sources on the internet, and I sometimes listen to Rush Limbaugh's often entertaining political commentary on the radio.

    Fox News Radio, or whatever news they have on the local public radio station, here, friends mentioning stuff, internet news sites usually linked from here or friends mentioning stuff.
