Where Do You Get Your News Off The Net?

What do you guys consider to be the most reliable source for news or news coverage on the net?

Most reliable? I don't know.

I still use CNN.com about 90% of the time because their site is clean and you get pretty much the same stories everywhere. I'm good enough at seeing the actual news through the sometimes junky headlines, I guess.

The best source of news is always here in Other and the Politics forum though.

My RSS news bar at the bottom of the screen cycles between Reuters, Yahoo News, BBC, Christian Science Monitor, CNet News, The Register, Slashdot and Wired News. Of those, I use BBC and Reuters the most.

My homepage is Google news, but since they are just outsourcing to a variety of other news sites... You can't consider them a truly reliable source of news. I've clicked on an article before and gotten a link to some Chinese state-owned news site, which had more bullshit than factual information.

I've used MyWay for awhile now. Clean interface, no pop-ups, and easy access to the most common news sources

Do we get news off the net or on the net?
