I watch politics like its intellectual football, and people often ask me where I get my news. I get my news from many sources, but these six are actually on my bookmark bar in Safari. I visit all of them 1-3 times a day.
- Politico: My favorite. They are usually the first to pick up a new story and they tend to be pretty blanced, but like all media they sensationalize everything.
- CNN Political Ticker: This gives play by play throughout the day.
- NYT: Leans a little left, but it gives details where others give sound bites.
- The White House: Though always propaganda-ish, it’s nice to hear it sometimes straight from the horse’s mouth. I also like looking at the picture albums. I enjoy the cult of power, which I’m sure plays a role in why I like the West Wing so much. And it’s NOT just because I like Obama. I checked out this website just as much when GWB was president.
- Wikipedia News: I am not sure if I am ashamed our proud to say that this is always my starting point for worldwide news.
- Real Clear Politics: My most right-leaning of bookmarked sites. RCP mainly links to other articles. They also have lots of good polls and average polling data.
