What blogsites do you trust/go to first?
I am fed up with "traditional" media as Kos refers to.
What/who do you trust? What is your lineup in the a.m.?

22. Me too, and sometimes I think this is too much.
My husband keeps me apprised of Huffpo, Digby, Talking Points, Kos and Atrios, though.

39. Do we consider DU a blogsite and we bloggers?
always been a question to me.

42. I think of it as a message board and we posters.
a "blogger" seems to have more respect. :-)

2. Blogs aren't really my thing. My favorite sites though are:
buzzflash.com and here. I like tbrnews.org, but we're not suppose to mention that site. HuffingtonPost is good, Salon.com.

6. I always go to this one first:
http://firedoglake.blogspot.com /

Firedoglake frequently cites to other blogs, so you'll find other ones just by going there.

This one's also a gem:

http://jameswolcott.com /

And here's one I KNOW you'll like:

http://www.thismodernworld.com /

These are also good:

http://www.warandpiece.com /

http://talkleft.com /

8. It's probably not what you're looking for, but this is my essential
site.

http://politicaltheory.info /

It's a labor of love for the poli sci grad/doctoral student that runs it. The breadth of his links is astounding, covering a wide range of topics, and, yes, a wide range of viewpoints. Don't be afraid to have your thoughts challenged. It will only strengthen them.

19. A few good ones - Democratic Daily, DCP, Donkey Rising
The Democratic Daily

Donkey Rising

Democracy Cell Project

But I confess, I still check BBC, MSNBC, and NYT. Not that I trust them, just that I want to know what they are talking about. And I usually hear one or two things on NPR as I get ready for work that I won't see later on in the MSM.

23. I haven't listened much since Air America got up to speed.
I think Amy Goodman should get the Medal of Freedom
from a legitimate administration though.

24. I like Raw Story and HuffPo for breaking news,.
They seem to get the news faster than most other sites.

www.rawstory.com

www.huffingtonpost.com

Josh Micah Marshall is good for his investigative reporting.

www.talkingpointsmemo.com

IMHO :shrug:

30. Disclaimer: Among many others, I have to be partial to
Buzzflash.com....because I do the World Media Watch and I wish more people would read it because the foreign press is where the action is in terms of the geopolitical situation...

37. If you're not afraid to put on your tinfoil hat.....
InfoWars is a good site. I'm a big Alex Jones fan. But he's a little too "conspiracy theory" for some.

51. I would recommend canofun and Altercation.
Altercation is on the MSNBC web page. And while you're there, Bloggermann (KO's blog) is worth a read too.

Those two were the first blogs I started to visit and I'm still a loyal fan. I also enjoy TPMcafe and the Huffington Post. During the last Presidential primary, I was glued to Blog For America.
