I was wondering what everyone uses for News/Politics/World Events info on a regular basis, mostly to see if there's good sites or publications I'm missing.
The stuff I reas is generally pretty mainstream, mostly because I think the best alternative to the mainstream American media is the European Media (some of which I also read). The Indy-press or other ideological publications tend to annoy me to no end. If there's going to be editorializing in my news, I want it subtle enough that I don't notice if I'm not looking for it
My list: Most of these are local, NY based stuff. And this is just the stuff I'll read (or at least skim) on a daily/weekly basis, not if I'm hunting around for stories on various stuff.

The San Jose Merky News, the Wall Street Journal and The Economist, all hardcopy. I check Google and AOL if I want video clips, because I don't do TV news, short of apocalyptic events. If I'm over at Mama's, I read her copy of the Chronicle. That's about all I have time for these days.

Fark.com, newsfilter.org (right wing slant and porn... who could ask for more?), portalofevil.com and drudge seem to be a good starting point. I also check the "majors" (cnn, fox, 1wrestling... kidding) but for the most part those are linked outright or have a link to a story that gets me to those.
There's a few blogs I read regularly, too. I like Tom Tomorrow, although he's on hiatus right now. Atrios, Demagogue, TBogg and Kos are are regular reads for me. Bartcop has hit the point where even I think he's lost his everloving mind, but I still make sure to check his Entertainment News once a day.
Then, there are the blogs: www.instapundit.com, www.volokh.com and the Best of the Day over at the Wall Street Jorunal. . From time to time, other stuff will catch my eye. From those three blogs, you can get just about anywhere.
