I don’t read the newspaper. I don’t watch cable TV news- or any news on TV. But I do read lots and lots of news online. Here are five news sources I find great for keeping up with current events around the world (in no particular order).
- NewsNow. “updates breaking headlines linking to news websites all around the world.” http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/
- Foreign Policy. I subscribe online, but I also get their Morning Brief sent to my Evernote every day. Great rundown of world events. http://link.foreignpolicy.com/view/52f14372c16bcfa46f27caaf1u4w8.19wf/c9038b65
- The Skimm. Another news aggregator, this one will cover a range of topics. Especially good when something is in the news that you just don’t understand- like basketball. http://www.theskimm.com/
- The Atlantic. Quirky and thoughtful articles, that people tend to like on Facebook when I post them. http://www.theatlantic.com/
- NPR. I especially like their blogs, such as CodeSwitch, Krulwich Wonders, National Security, Monkey Sees, and the Sandwich Monday posts. http://www.npr.org/
