Well there is an interesting thread going on right now about the major mainstream News stations.
FOX, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC etc...No ISSUES, just gossip, and the corporations are loving it!
And several posters suggested that many people are turning online for news and information. We all know about Drudge and you could even consider ATS as being somewhat of a news source.
In this vein I was wondering where ATS members go to get their online news and information?
Here are a couple of mine to start it off.
Breitbart.Com
Blacklisted News

Where are the rest of you going?

I get all my news from yahoo news or on my cellphone with sprint on demand.

What Really happened, New one for me..
Going to check it out now and it looks interesting.
I use to go to BBC a lot, but they are also falling under the influence of the mainstream media to some extent.
I also like The Christian science Monitor. despite it's name, the news seems to be middle of the road.

I use Yahoo Personal Page for my start Page, it is very customizable (is that a word?), so I have added various news modules that serve my interests. It can also be very technological oriented and that suits me also.

yes, but I seem tom have a lot of trouble with the Video links from Yahoo. All the other linked videos work fine but the Yahoo ones don't always work. I have Drudge and Breitbart linked directly to my Yahoo start page. I also like a lot of their entertainment and other helpful content like weather and local movies.

Hate to say it, but I like 'Rense', I just put it through my crap filter, and get the good stuff.
Yeah I know but rense does provide many different sources, I can choose what I will give a read to.
I read everything with a cautious open mind (crap filter), I have a maybe, maybe not attitude toward most of what I see or read.
Perhaps when my grandfather years ago yelled 'BRAINWASH!' at the TV years ago, something stuck, ever since, everything is 'BRAINWASH!'

I use Fark.com for its headline system and instant delivery of important and non-important news items. Might as well take everything happening in the world as if it were a joke while retaining the information provided and observing other peoples' takes on the events.

I hardly ever read news sites (or watch the news or read papers) I tend to get what I need to know from forums. There's one I use,but I'm going off it,as you can't even mention 9/11 let alone have a decent conversation about ufos without the pseudosceptics ridiculing you. So I won't mention it's url. You'd all be banned within the first couple of posts

yes I go to fark and the Onion occasionally for a different take on things.
The Sacremento Bee also has what seems to be a pretty fair look at things, and although they are a west coast City news Org. they seem to break a lot of world news

useful info, thanks! i was just thinking about finding better news sites just the other day.

right now i go to slashdot for tech news, and google news for general updates.

I have slashdot linked to my start page also. Good place for tech stuff.
here is an interesting newsfeed service that is kind of mainstream, but it does have some alternative viewpoints also.
Newser

It is basically a configurable search engine for news feeds.

Most of my news is gotten from Digg.com (User news community where you rate stories and submit your own), rarely I will pick some up from specialty blogs like Joystiq for gaming.

Maybe even 4chan.org...

I use Yahoo and Drudge.

I visit several different forums but really enjoy ATS because of ALL the different views regardless of how wrong they are.

Social Bloggers sometimes have a lot of news content. Every once in a while I will use StumbleUpon to see some sites. I just update my preferences to just show "News General"...and start stumbling.

Since getting rid of Cable TV in 2004 I've been getting the majority of the
news from Internet news sites and also from Talk Radio. ( I drive a lot. )
Aside from having the usual ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX sites bookmarked, I
also visit www.NewsMax.com every day and of course ATS. ATS is the
best for obtaining news that most of the world will not see, along with
some very intelligent feedback from members here. -CWM (chicago)

quite liberating...getting rid of cable tv huh? i must say it frees up a lot of off-time, and you do not miss anything of worth. except maybe a few gems, like bsg, jeopardy, and heroes. but i can just wait until those very few come out on dvd [except jeopardy
]. quit with the rush-rush, be patient, play scrabble, and just go chill by a creek or something until then. that's my view.

and the ridiculous thing is that the internet is infinitely better for news than the tv in the first place.

though i do enjoy stewart and colbert pointing out political stupidity...i mean who doesn't?
