Where do you get your info on the War?

  1. Apr 2, 2003 #1
    What are your sources for information on the War in Iraq? I usually go to:
    1) Washington Post
    2) BBC
    3) Public Television (News Hour with Jim Lehrer) and NPR.
    4) www.arabnews.com ( a Saudi paper)
    5) abc and CBS.

    www.agonist.org <-- This site is wonderful, it's a blog compiling news reports & links from many sources.

    For mainstream media, I use in rough order of preference:
    1) BBC
    2) Guardian (UK paper)
    3) Ha'aretz (Israeli paper)
    4) CNN, Reuters, IRNA (Iranian state news)

    The Washington Post and NY Times have great day-after articles, much more in-depth than the networks.

    I have been very disappointed by The Onion's biased coverage. I demand access to a sarcastic, humorous, fictional newspaper in favor of the war!

    Occasionaly pravda...although it's not a "good" news source I find interesting leads that can be further confirmed through more dependable sources.

    I also go to the
    whitehouse.gov/news/briefings
    photodudes weblog
    and i've been reading the agonist since damgo mentioned it. very good source, thanks for sharing it.

    I watch a bit of PBS and occasionaly cbs (mainly because that's the only channels we recieve :wink:)

    Quite often I follow drudge's list of news links to see what other news sources are saying.

    CNN and UsaToday. Their biases notwithstanding (read that however you wish) CNN specifically has more resources for gathering information than any other source.
