I read as much and as broadly as I can, including from magazines and newspapers that I think, to varying degrees, are retarded (Pravda, Xinhua, El Pais, Der Spiegel, The Nation, Mother Jones, NYT, etc.), just to see what they're saying/thinking.
The internet makes it so easy to read from so many sources, my real problem is feeling like I just can't read enough (typical enneagram 5).
The publications to which I subscribe are The Economist, The Financial Times, the LA Times, the NY Times, John Mauldin's 'Thoughts from the Frontline' and 'Outside the Box', Stratfor, Foreign Affairs (just ended my subscription -- wasn't reading it), the Pete G. Peterson Foundation and The Daily Reckoning (makers of I.O.U.S.A.), Casey Research, Zacks Investment Research, The Motley Fool, and The Daily Beast.
I wish it made sense to pay for the $800 subscription to Grant's Interest Rate Observer, but, alas, it does not. Same for certain other finance-related newsletters (The Gartman Letter, The Dow Theory Letter, Economic Cycle Research Institute, et al).
I also visit Drudge, which brings me into contact with the various British papers, Yahoo news, Reuters, Wall St. Journal, Bloomberg, local papers, and many others.
Aside from those, it's mainly Yahoo Finance, ESPN, one or two blogs, Sherdog (I love MMA
, and whatever other sites I stumble upon or are sent to me...
My dad, by no desire of my own, more or less subscribes me to a conservative op-ed writer for The Boston Globe (an otherwise liberal newspaper), but I only read those once in a blue moon.
I used to subscribe to The Hoover Institution (a conservative think tank based out of Stanford) early in my college days, but haven't for a long time, and I'm thinking about subscribing to Philosophy Now (the biggest quarterly journal on philosophy).
Oh, I also recently started subscribing to YouTube channels, so I get various ones on MMA, the Federal Budget, TEDTalks, etc.
