Main Question or Discussion Point

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.

I compare the reports from all of the cable news networks, yahoo.com, news.google.com, Charlie Rose.

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.

PS - the Onion asked this question, too: http://www.theonion.com/onion3911/wdyt_3911.html [Broken]
"I watch the Fox News Channel, because they're unbiased and support the war 100 percent."

"I watch Al-Jazeera on satellite but turn the sound off and listen to NPR. I have no idea what the **** is happening."

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.
