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.

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.

For example, do you publish on particular days of the week or time of day? Do you promote based on hot topics on social media or news stories/current events on broadcast media? How important is it to be aware of what's happening day-to-day that may influence they way readers search for information?

We live in a time when anyone can post anything online and claim it is true. Some people believe such posts if they fit their preferred view of the world.I have seen many, many postings in Answers and Forums as well as Hubs that are filled with gross inaccuracies, especially about politics.

The local newspaper has reduced its size radically and talk is that it may reduce even more. Ad revenue has gone down in the past few years. This is happening all over the country. Do you still read the paper? How often? Why? I like reading the paper, but I am losing patience with...
