    I read
    Telegraph (UK, right)
    Le Monde (France, centre left)
    El Pais (Spain, centre left)
    La Tercera (Chile, right)

    I watch
    TVE (Spain) and
    TV5monde (international french language TV with programmes from France, Belgium, Switzerland and Canada)

    And sometimes Radio Caracol (Colombia, moderate right)
    sometimes Rachel Maddow (USA, moderate left)
    sometimes the NY Times (USA, centre left)
    Sometimes De Telegraaf (holland) and Radio Een (holland)
    Sometimes BBC radio (UK, centre left/trendy liberal)



    Obviously not all of everything every day... but it gives me a fair take on what is going on and what is really worth time

    30 Rock for news/economic mood via honest satire.

    Pete: So, first you thought he was illiterate and now you think he's lazy? Liz, you are racist.
    Liz: No, Tracy took advantage of my white guilt, which is supposed to be used only for good, like over-tipping and supporting Barack Obama.

    Come on boys... You can do better than this... You just read the cartoons, or just embarrassed that you only watch Fox/Keith Olbermann?


    I was just talking to a lebanese friend and am going to add L´orient le jour, which is the french language paper of Lebanon. That gives me perspectives from Latin America, the Middle east, North america, africa and europe....

    I´m also going to read Al Jazeera´s English site for a week and see if I like it.

    I've love the NPR podcasts, especially on radiolab.org. Very well done.

    Other than that, I tune into CNN until I can't stand the repetition anymore, then feel most relaxed watching the ABC and NBC evening news. Diane Sawyer makes everything mellow.

    they're more left. that's fine with me. they allow commentary from the right, but they don't foster all the shouting and sarcasm that is endemic in other usa media.

    Fox News is not news. It's propaganda. The Shirley Sherrod and birther crap should have clued you in.

    give an impression of its overall position: the right in the Uk is about the same as center left in the USA at the moment and the USA right wing has gone off the scales, hopefully just in the short term.

    Rachel Maddow is actually not very left wing. She´s really not.

    God. That's so funny. When I saw this thread, I was going to post this on your behalf. At least you are honest.

    But you did miss listing National Enquirer as your source for print media.icon_evil.gif

    (You will note that someone took you seriously, above).

    Well, for politics and general news:

    TPM (left)
    Salon (I read lefties)
    Oregonian (stupid local news)
    Buffalo News (stupid, stupid local news)
    NY Times (right. I mean, really. Tom fucking Friedman)
    Washington Post (right)
    Wall Street Journal (right)
    Politico (depends)
    FiveThirtyEight (statistics have no affiliation)
    BlueOregon (left)

    But I also read a log of medical and science news not involving Jesus riding a triceratops, so it is politics neutral.

    For laughs I read local Communist newspapers. 50 years after their glory days and the language is still the same. Hilarious.

    I really hope you are correct. But as you have probably noted in some of the posts I've made, what is disturbing is that some of the guys on RJ, either actual or potential victims of discrimination and profiling, have not uniformly stated they decry the tea party attempts to win the Republican party over to their point of view.

    What I see is equivocating.

    So do I icon_smile.gif I actually like a solid right in a country, one that makes coherent arguments to keep statism in check. I tend to think that the extreme righties on RJ are shills or delusional people who are allowed to use the internet as part of their rehabilitation programmes in institutions.
