Five Things…News Sources

Leave a comment

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).

  1. NewsNow.  “updates breaking headlines linking to news websites all around the world.”  http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/
  2. 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 
  3. 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/
  4. The Atlantic.  Quirky and thoughtful articles, that people tend to like on Facebook when I post them.  http://www.theatlantic.com/
  5. NPR.  I especially like their blogs, such as CodeSwitch, Krulwich Wonders, National Security, Monkey Sees, and the Sandwich Monday posts.  http://www.npr.org/
