For radio I alternate between NPR & conservative talk radio so I can get both sides.

On the internet it is Yahoo for current events and Bloomberg for financial news. In the evenings I open the Associated Press app before I go to bed.

For the last 2 months, I have watched the Jerusalem Post website for the latest concerning the Gaza Strip.

Gave up giving a damn years ago. Still get some on the radio, and the stupid phone I have gives me Google headlines. If I could figure out how to turn them off I would.

NPR, Fox News online, local paper four days a week plus the WSJ (paper and online). The only TV news I'll watch is Fox, but that is sporadic; not daily. I'll catch the BBC, WaPo, plus my hometown paper online also.

Every morning I check the weather provided by the local TV station's web page and I check the obituaries from the web page of a news paper published in the area where I grew up to see if any old friends, acquaintances, or any class mates have passed. That's the only news I really care about and tend to ignore the rest of the depressing garbage. Besides no one is going to allow me to resolve some of the problems we're having anyway because my methods may not be politically correct. lol!

The BBC like Adam. I have an app on my phone and tablet. I also listen to BBC Radio 4 a lot too. For a different opinion other than Anglo American slant, I visit Al Jazeera's app regularly too...

I'm with you on Al Jazeera as well, particularly when it comes to the middle east and Europe.

In the morning I bounce between Fox for its slant, HLN for fluff,and local stations for the important stuff!
