So I thought I'd do a post about the more significant sites I rely on for news. Be advised! This is not an endorsement of any of these sites! I provided some notes below, to explain my choices.
The Cincinnati Enquirer -- hometown paper.
Crux -- a middle-to-liberal Catholic publication. Seems to be positioned as NCReporter without the crazy.
The Daily Beast -- liberal gossip page, run by and for dimwits. Why do I read it? I want to know what they're saying.
The Drudge Report -- the originator of the news aggregation method.
Instapundit -- another aggregator, except it also includes brief commentary, which is usually very funny. The host, Glenn Reynolds, is a libertarian law professor with eclectic tastes.
National Catholic Register -- a faithful Catholic publication, owned by EWTN. A good site, but not a large amount of news coverage.
National Catholic Reporter -- would be better termed National Heretical Reporter. Why do I read it? Two reasons. First, because they do cover a lot of stories. Second, because I want to see more than my own point of view.
National Review Online -- conservative publication, with commentary on news, politics and religion. Especially good for judicial news.
RealClearPolitics -- disregard the name; it has pages of content on literature, science news, public policy, education, religion, history, technology, and more. Whoever runs this does an excellent job aggregating lots of straight news and opinion pieces, both left and right.
The Washington Post -- it's the Washington Post.
The Week -- a newish publication; tends to be liberal, but has conservative content.
Now, if anyone is keeping score, you'll notice I access material from across the spectrum. And these aren't all the sites I visit; they're just the main ones.
What do you think?
