    1) Wall Street Journal News Alerts
    2) National Public Radio
    3) Google and Yahoo! News
    4) Co-workers
    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).

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    A LOT of places, here's a listing of things news-related, that I read:

    1)-Newspapers: Two local papers (Star-ledger, and Courier News)
    2)-Magazines: Time, Newsweek, Informationweek (Tech stuff), Businessweek, The Economist, Money.
    3)-TV: If you want to consider it news, The Daily Show, and The Tonight show...but, I despise cable news, it never has anything of value on.
    4)-Internet: Yahoo news, digg, dailytech, arstechnica, torrentfreak.

    I do actually read that much, every issue of those magazines gets read, along with the papers, and probably almost every story that comes across the news sites.

    Like Anonymous, I also use the BBC for a lot of my news.

    Other sources include The Economist, and two Australian newspapers: The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian.
    Ah, thanks. And yeah, I like a mix of international sources too. I always find the differing perspectives on the same issues to be interesting, as well as what gets more and less attention.

    And also, I forgot to mention that I check my own local newspaper as well, though I don't have that in my news feed.

    BBC, and RocketNews mainly. RocketNews is a news junkies firmament of utopia.

    I don't know about everywhere else, but I know in the UK that you get Al Jazeera English on the normal satellite television subscription. The Arabic Al Jazeera you have to pay extra on top of that.

    Two of the worst and most biased pieces of tripe on both ends. Or in other words you may know them as:

    1. CNN
    2. Fox
    -
    3. Newspapers*
    4. MSNBC

    To say the least the first two give a unique contrast of perspectives, one stereotypically liberal, the other appreciably conservative. It makes for an interesting dynamic. Between these two I feel I'm able to construct a more politically neutral picture of reality.

    how delightfully naive!

    local newspapers, misc. online sources, Town Hall - mostly for a few select columnists.
    [I try to keep my exposure to the preachy pseudo-critical thinking ("Ben Stein's movie pisses off liberals everywhere for being so astonishingly objective and right!") or generically angry neo-con ("here's something you probably already knew about liberals but I get paid by the article, not the originality. Plus I'm just so goddamn pissed off about it.") columns to a minimum.] And tv news is only good for severe weather reports.
    I don't wanna!
