Do you use the newspaper, political journals, blogs, news websites, tv stations? How do you follow the news?

I personally watch a variety of channels while also reading some blogs and websites. I watch both the conservative news from Fox and the more moderate news from CNN (I've tried but can't really stand MSNBC), while also watching some of the public news hours. I also watch The Daily Show on Comedy Central for a more leftist comedic slant on the news to keep my opinions in perspective. I also read a bit of The Economist online and various blogs for alternative perspective.

I usually have the news channel (Sky News) on in the background while I'm surfing Nolan Fans and writing. It keeps me constantly udated. Sometimes it even gives me inspiration.

If I'm really intrigued by a news story, I'll research it on the net.

I don't buy newspapers at all, they're a waste of money. I can get all of the articles in a newspaper online, and it's easier.

BBC have terrible reporters, and their design scheme is just awful.

Sky News have the sexiest presenters. ;)

tumblr, since I don't have a TV. But when I do, I usually watch MSNBC...really rare though. Aside from that, Fox News and CNN because those are the only two that play at my work. They are all pretty biased, so I use tumblr the most cause it has varying news sources.
