  • Where do you get your news and information from?

    Apparently there is something called "fake news" out there. This "fake news" is apparently designed to manipulate the way people think about a certain subject by only providing content that supports one view.

    Post your main sources of local, regional, national and global information so we can just if you're being manipulated or not.

    UW's main information sources:

    I don't really follow local news. But when I do its from our local 6 pm news show. It's shit.
    CBC (that's the publicly funded canadian boardcasting corporation) for regional and national shit. I'll listen to the CBC radio 1 on and off.
    CNN or BBC radio and TV for international news. Although CNN is mostly american politicals.
    Bloomberg radio for financial news.
    I'll throw on NPR on the satellite radio for sciency stuff too.
    TSN and espn for sports.

    I tend to ignore twitter and FB "news stories". They're most click bait.

        I do get a lot of news from UJ during the day. I seldom have someone tell me "did you hear about......???" and I haven't already seen it posted here.

        Also, newspaper, news radio, local news on TV, national news on TV. I usually scan cnn.com every day or two although that has turned into a tabloid anymore.

            BBC for general news. They are more geared toward news and less towards commentary disguised as "news".

                  The interwebs. If it's on the interwebs it must be true.

                    A guy named Bobby down at the bar. He gets there everyday at 11 AM and drinks bottles of bud and watches CNN all day. He looks likes this.

                          I read the WSJ daily but it's mostly worthless.
                          I get most news off Twitter by following Bloomberg, Associated Press, multiple local news reporters, some economic reporters, some political reporters I like who attack both sides, Human Rights Watch, wikileaks, CNNBreakingNews and a few others like it. The NYTimes and Washington Post get hit routinely via certain apps I have. Several reporters act like aggregators linking to stories they liked from a bunch of different sources.

                          I get 2 emails every morning with an aggregate of news - all non-political and mostly financial.

                          The Intercept I review daily.

                          News aggregators can be EXCELLENT sources for news but you have to be careful and monitor who they source. NakedCapitalism used to be good - I hit it sometimes still. They have a daily list of news links they've found interesting. Their own analysis is pretty much shit.

                            CNN, CBS, FOX and Breitbart

                            I try to hear all sides of the argument so I can minimize the spin. The main reason I read Breitbart is because they drive the Snowflakes totally crazy.

                              for radio, there's just a local news radio show that's on all day. during the week its sort of a repetitive update of whatever news is going on during the day along with weather and traffic.

                              local news on tv is just the local network stations for DFW news. I dont' get home until after 6pm, so i watch the 10 pm news. then on PBS there's some national news that's pretty good. i try to stay away from all biased news, although news in general has changed a ton in the past 10 years or so. When Ted Koppel left Nightline and it turned into a tabloid news show seemed to start the shift of most news going to a more of an entertainment business than a news business.
