Your first site for the day's politics.

Gateway Pundit baby. Take with a grain of salt, but know they will be 4-5 days ahead of other online sites due to lack of fact checking! Lol

I take a look at CNN, ABC, FOX, and then the BBC. Follow it all up with the WSJ and then whatever folks post here.

Yeah, we know. :lol:

Drudge is a dang good news aggregator.

And it could be me, but lately i've noticed that he's shifting to the left of alt-right.


Just slightly. He will link unflattering and "anti-Trump" stories regularly. :twocents:

That's where I get my fringe news - I have friends on the extremes on both sides and they all post regularly. It's quite the eye opener to remember the extremists out there.

I forgot about Morning Brew. It’s morning email.


I used to get the NYT briefing emails but units stopped reading them

Usually RealClearPolitics.com. That's because I am interested in polling. As a news site, according to the site I like to use for checking such things (mediabiasfactcheck.com), it has a right-center biased and a mixed accuracy in reporting rating. But the reason it has a mixed accuracy rating is that its news is just links to other sources and articles and/or editorials from some of those sources have failed fact checks.

I like to check Reuters because it has a "least biased" bias rating and a "very high" accuracy rating. When there's some big news story going on I like to check Reuters to see what that source has to say about it.

And of course I Google to look at a variety of sources when I'm wondering about something in the news.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

It varies for me, but right now the first thing I read is the Nikkei Asian Review

It is by far one of the best news outlets I have ever followed. They have some real investigative journalism and excellent analysis.

Our local outlet, DelawareOnline, is just a virtual version of the NewsUrinal. Gannett-produced POS. :thumbdown:

My local news source is terrible for national stuff. It's only good for what's happening in the general area, and even then it's pretty thin. Just isn't a market for local news anymore, no one wants to spend anything for it.
