What r good web sites to get the news. I dont watch the TV news channels and honestly cant stand them. I do watch the Nightly News and sometimes Nightline but they can only do so much. So Id like some websites that do a decent job

i listen to npr mostly for news or PBS news programs. My alma mater's college NPR station
does a good job of covering both the international, national and local news and weather.

many portal sites will let you custiomize the news content. I use My Excite at www.excite.com as a portal, mainly because it used to have a Apple Computer content portal site which has morphed into their curret portal. Excite leds you choose
your content from AP feeds.

Peace
John

The web site 'Buzz Flash.com' is a good sourse for the liberal view of daily news.

Recently WP has become good source for (and living example of) News of the Wierd.

Yes. Reuters, BBC and AlJazeera are especially known for their fair balanced, non-partisan reporting. In the bizarro universe.

Do you think we have unbiased reporting here Doug? The United Kingdom has been far more forthcoming in it's reporting than we have been. I will grant you that we may have better reporters, but their hands are tied and the networks tape their mouths shut unless they do as they are told. Even though Osama has a personal problem with Al Jazeera, I like it anyway.
