    Default What are your news / info sources?

    And why.

    For a long time I didn't read the news, found it too depressing. But recently I've been getting in to keeping up on (some) current events. Because I realized I was ignorant about things that were happening, not that I really get in to such conversations all that much, and also because a war could break out and I've have no idea. I need to formulate a contingency plan in the event of, but that's another topic.

    I frequent:

    *BBC News app - comprehensive, well written and broad, brief articles and so far I am not aware of a strong political bias either way.
    *Alien Blue app (Reddit) - This does have interesting articles and information brought to the fore, it does also have a lot of garbage and the style of humor that is popular I'm now finding tedious - it's easy to ignore that though.
    *The Week App - Good to skim, I tend to find the style is 'in analysis' type of articles. Though I don't read too many of them. I'm a fan of the magazine because it covers many news sources and combines them, for a balanced political view.
    *This American Life podcast - obscure stories and interesting information on life. Haven't listened to it in a while though.

    Please include any good websites you use also...

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    I find it to be less biased when presenting the news, than any of the American news source (which can be ripe with sensationalism). And, especially, with regards to news about the Middle East.
