Best news orgs?
Organizations with balls, that tell it like it is and don't feel they have to cow-tow to conservative bullies.

1. Not a news org (yet), but
Keith Olbermann is continuing to do great work at his new home on Current.

I hope that Current grows as they intend - into a truly progressive news organization without corporate overlords ruling over the content.

2. Yeah I'm hoping for Current, too.

I think they need to get a little more serious about their reporting, though. I'm personally no fan of AP... would like to see some competition in the "adventurist journalism" market.

They seem to be going in a million different directions. I can't tell if they are a TV station, an internet radio, or a discussion forum.

3. Most factual and unafraid news is coming from Al-Jazeera...
http://english.aljazeera.net /

with BBC running second.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world/us_and_canada /

I find it quite fucking sad that there is NO hard-hitting American news agency anymore.

4. McClatchy's pretty good.
And they didn't fall for the WMD line, either.
