Now OP, that's like asking a fisherman where his best fishing holes are or a hunter about where the actual deer trails can be found. It's one of
Outside juicy (hard worked to find) specialty sites? Well, I focus on aggregate sites more than anything these days. I check sites like CNN, Fox, Al
Jazeera and RT on a regular basis but Breakingnews.com and Drudge come to mind as the couple I check most. They'd be the ones I bother checking with
the limited time and ability from my phone at school, I'll put it that way.
Reuters wire and AP wire breaking news pages are also a regular load to see what the minute to minute stuff is. That's always interesting compared to
something like Drudge that may only update twice a day depending on the day and news cycle.
As for sourcing stories? All I can say is, very simply, learn the .gov system and it'll be the door to all the info and data you could want or need,
forever. Whatever else Obama has or hasn't done in his Presidency? He set the WHOLE Federal Government on the path to the web like pointing the
Energizer Bunny. Like the bunny, they have kept going and going and going.
To put it another way, what may have taken an hour or more just to find, let alone do anything with, like read, just a year or even months
in some cases, can be 10 minutes now. That's starting from a cold Google search bar. The expansions and consolidation in the best ways for both at
once have been pretty incredible to see. Those hundreds of thousands of office workers that populate "The System" really DO work at something all
day, as I've been seeing coming online more and more the past year.
BTW... That goes as much and as true for Australia (especially for environment related info) and Britain for a bit of everything. The E.U. also has a
lot of web based with new things popping up all the time.
