Where do you get your news?

This morning WBEZ asked folks in the Daley Plaza what they thought about recent articles about Bush planning to go to war to prevent Iran from developing Nuclear weapons.

The first lady interview said “I just don’t know who to believe anymore.”

Personally, I think that’s just a cop out. No matter how busy we get day to day, we need to be aware of what is going on in the world–not just what our government is doing.

My question to you, dear reader, is simple: What local news sources do you trust?

    It’s not one news source that I trust, but many. Throughout the day I listen to NPR, 780AM, read the Trib, SunTimes, NYTimes online, among others. I figure the more I read, the more I’m going to hear all of the opinions. To stick with one and only one is cheating yourself of at least one angle.

    I read the Trib every day, that’s my local news source- but I also read BBC news online every day as well and see how the two compare. They generally compare pretty accurately, in spite of what conspiracy theorists would have you believe- the news is out there, you just have to be diligent enough to actually READ it.

    Well, I certainly know who I *don’t* trust… *cough*Bush*cough*.

    Anyway, I agree… that is a total cop out. It’s not hard to have at least a sense of what is really going on: ignore statements made by politicians, be they Republican or Democrat. Then balance what you hear from a variety of MSM sources. You might not be 100% informed, but you’ll have a pretty darn good idea what is going on.

    Sheesh. Sometimes I wonder about people…

    trib, sun-times, ny times, even drudge, you need to read it all to round it out, i say. i do not watch the tv news so much, or any cable, and i certainly don’t feel less informed because of it.

    Michael Miner in the Reader is always good.

    in a way i am envious of those who are blissfully unaware. they are probably a lot happier.
