When I'm at school I read my hometown newspaper online. Also the New York Times, and when I remember, BBC news online.

11-26-2004, 09:18 AM
As often as I can I try to read the following papers:
Dagbladet Arbejderen (The Daily Worker) www.arbejderen.dk
Politiken (The Politic) www.pol.dk (sort of social-democratic leaning)
Jyllands Posten (Jutland's Post) www.jp.dk (Conservative/Classic liberal)

oh and for websites:
www.memri.org Middle East Media Research Institute
www.tehrantimes.org Used by the Foreign Ministry of Tehran
www.iran-daily.com used by someone in Iran, not really sure.
Also several Yahoo groups:
Maoist Guns (information about the current maoist revolutions and uprisings)
CMPK-PK (Pakistan's Communist Party)
Anti-Allawi Group
Islam Peace and Understanding
Cascadia Confederacy
Cascadian Bioregionalism
The Cascadian Republic
Running on Empty

That's about that. Sometimes I check out al-jazeer, CNN, and Fox News.

I listen to news bulletins on the radio,as they are short,sweet summaries without unnecessary detail. I like to know what's going on,but I hate the news. I find it depressing and most of the news items are about irrelevant things I don't need to know about.

I am reading two newspapers ( volkskrant, metro ) a day and I check www.tiscali.nl often

11-26-2004, 10:40 AM
The correct answer was The Onion [ www.theonion.com ]

11-26-2004, 10:49 AM
True story I thought one of the onions stories was true a couple years ago.

I don't really read the news at all. I watch a lot of TV, daily politics, question time, news, etc. etc. but don't read the news at all.

Speaking of not-so-true news, I had a good laugh last week when the guys at Somethingawful wrote a fake review of Halo 2 (and trashed the game eniterly) and recieved thousands of angry emails from fat, geeky fans.

In my experience most geeks are skinny.

11-26-2004, 11:07 AM
Skinny from sitting all day at the pc and downloading celebrity skin pictures?

Truthmedia is great. I love how the idiots that reply to it just read the review and don't even bother looking at the rest of the site, where they would realize it's not a real review very quickly.

Anyway, as for news outlets I'll just watch whatever channel the TV happens to be turned to. Or the Daily Show. Apparently people who watch the Daily Show were more informed about election issues than for any other news program. I find that really funny because it's not even a real news show.

flick through The Metro sometimes.. (Free bus newspaper)

11-26-2004, 12:14 PM
I read The Australian every day almost and The Financial Review when I can find it or can't find the Oz. Sometimes if its at work I'll skim the Courier Mail but its pretty shit.

www.news.com.au thats most of australian newspapers right there but the afr is at www.afr.com.au

11-26-2004, 03:14 PM
slashdot and osnews...

all other news i'd care about is emailed to me.

11-26-2004, 03:20 PM
I have three links under news in my bookmarks

Fox News
Drudge Report
Toronto Sun

I don't keep up with current events nearly enough though... mostly because school takes up 95% of my time. And my major doesn't involve current events in the least. Sigh...

I skipped thru your papers and found nothing fun. Gah.

Don't read much news lately anyways.
