    Political News Question - What is your political news sources and why?

    I am interested in finding out where political hubbers are getting their news and what sources they trust... and would like to also know if they are using factcheck.org often, seldom, never.

    I go to Drudgereport, then hotair.com, and then to gatewaypundit. I know what bias I am getting and I take it with a grain of salt, but it is the bias that I lean towards.

    Good Evening KKalmes

    I am not a very active "political" hubber. I do have my political views, of course. I find that events (or the perception of events) seem to take place so fast (due to the twenty-four hour, minute-by-minute "news" cycle) that I don't always know how to keep up with the swirl of events.

    I like to read history, start at the beginning, as it were, and work my way up to the present. This approach really helps me get a handle on things. But of course I do, vaguely follow the news. NPR is satisfactory, though a bit conservative for me. I like a progressive radio station called WBAI (99.5 where I am).

    As for Internet sources, I'll occasionally visit a website called GlobalPost.com -- an online international news magazine and globalresearch.ca sponsored by a Canadian outfit, the Center for Globalization Research, and so on and so forth. But mostly I find reading books the most helpful -- I'm a reader and reading history really does help me orient myself in the news cycle.
