1) Wall Street Journal News Alerts
2) National Public Radio
3) Google and Yahoo! News
5) Geeky News sites: slashdot, Tom's Hardware, MPR-Online, EDN, New Scientist, Nature, etc. --Very specific news.
6) Specific online news-sites relevant to stories I want to follow. "The Hindu" for Indian news, techsidelines for Virginia Tech Sports news, The San Jose Mercury News for Silicon Valley local news, the Stanford news service specific to Stanford, etc.
7) Magazine subscriptions (Popular Science, Psychology Today, Fortune, Inc., Entrepreneur--not very heavy on news, these, but there is some)
Sometimes I tune into CNN, FNC, MSNBC, etc. when the specific thing I want to fallow is being covered to death by the 24-hour news networks (A very rare occurrence).
