I feel the need to say something in defense of FoxNews: they have the hottest women anchors any on cable TV station.

Anywhere but FOX emoticon I mostly read it online, from tons of sources - NYT, WaPo, BBC, al-Jazeera, Google. And Twitter, honestly!

Mostly online. For "breaking news" type stuff I usually look at Twitter. There's a lot of inaccurate stuff, but also lots of links to good news sources. Plus there is some pretty hilarious stuff at times.

I was pretty disappointed with the news media in general during recent events. I don't watch much news, so maybe my expectations are just outdated or too high, but too much newstainment for my taste.

Don't really care for CNN or MSNBC either one, but if my choices are those two or Faux News, I go with CNN.

the radio -then the TV at 5pm - but now I am living in the woods in a cabin - I miss almost all the news - the world could be ending and I would not know it.

I subscribe to the Sunday-only Arkansas Democrat-Gazette; the Sunday-only county paper "The Log Cabin Democrat"; Yahoo News; network news stations (except FOX...which is a right-wing joke); MSNBC; CNN; Reuters...and various other online news sites. I also will sometimes read USA Today, only because it is free at the hotel I work at. emoticon

In the morning, I watch my local news stations. At night, I watch the local news then the national news. I also check out google news to see what the highlights of the day are. They'll post trending articles from all over the web. So, some days I might read the Washington Post, the NY Times, La Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, etc. I love reading online news.

I only "paper" I read is the Metro when they hand it out at the subway. I stopped buying the Globe and Herald or NY Times ages ago. too expensive when I can read their websites for free.

Once in a while, I will pick up a Sunday paper. I do like spreading it out across the bed in the morning.

MSNBC for in depth. Local channels for local news. Internet for Dutch newspaper.

I have the AP (Associated Press) app on my phone. If something major happens, I get an alert with a sound, even if an article for it isn't ready yet. So, I knew about the Boston bombings before they even came up on TV. I will also read, but that's more just for lifestyle stories.

@BK: I know, foreign news reports don't have the same political twist that we hear here in the States, it's sometimes an eye opener as to how arrogant we can be sometimes (not that I'm complaining).

Last week I found myself using Twitter, of all things.

I hate freaking Twitter. I don't even have a Twitter account; have never tweeted in my life. And there is sooooo much crap to sift through. BUT it also contains links to all kinds of news sources... the left, the right, the overseas.... it was rather interesting to see how the same event is portrayed in ABC vs Al Jazeera vs BBC....

4/22/13 10:20 A

Hahahaha!!!! This a political thread in disguise, I LOVE IT!!!

MSNBC all-the-way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And no, none of them said right-wing extremists were responsible for the recent tragedy.

I usually watch the local news in the morning, except now the satellite is out and I can't pay the bill until I get paid on Friday.

Do you read your local newspaper? Do you watch your local TV news program? Or the networks CBS, NBC or ABC. Do you watch CNN, Fox News, MSNBC? Or do you get all of your news from the internet.

I read my local newspaper and I watch ABC's Good Morning America.
