How many of you check several news outlets daily?

I can't handle TV news any more, between the pace and the commercials. So I check several outlets online a few times a day to get different takes on stories and try to separate the reporting from the spins and commentaries. Just curious how many of you do that too.

5. I do.

Don't have cable and very rarely look at local news broadcasts. DU gets me started.

6. I get home delivery of the Washington Post. I read it during breakfast.

During the day, I hear NPR and occasionally read the NYT online. DU usually points me to good articles elsewhere.

13. Wonkette is a really really good source of news

They explain things clearly and have a lot of insight, and theyíre funny as hell. Theyíre all phenomenal writers and I could never choose a favorite, but I have no idea how Evan Hurst is as perceptive and fast and prolific as he is about the Mueller Investigation. Whenever I canít understand what the dayís bombshell means, I go to Wonketter as well as to DU.
