Great places to get news (non already mainstream ones)

  1. Local news channel ? State videos ? News podcast ? Not too famous shows etc ? Nice report about someone or an association ? Anything that goes unnoticed you think should be noticed ? Hit me !
    Politics, activism sport, pop culture, check my new job page: we basically do short news videos : Fun fact about my new job : you can see it but my mother can't
  2. Not sure if this counts as mainstream but The New York Times runs this weekly newsletter called The Interpreter which does a great job of breaking down the story of the week in a lot of detail and provides context and history and such. And also Quartz is a great app which gives fun bite sized updates!

  3. I swear by Quartz
    The app is great in its minimalism and quirkiness, but the newsletter is also incredible. It's the only media newsletter I subscribe to. (Has a Spanish version, as well, and a lifestyle newsletter, too.) http://www.qz.com

  4. If you skip past the obscenely-partisan political coverage, Drudge Report is one of the best news aggregators out there.
    Plus, it always helps to know how your political opposites are experiencing the news.

  5. Wall Street Journal
    It's conservative-centrist by nature, but fair. It's therefore a great bellwether for how reasonable non-liberals see the news.

  6. The New York Times does a weekday podcast series called "The Daily" hosted by Michael Barbaro. It provides the big stories of the day but also goes in-depth about controversial issues including laying out their full history and talking to people effected by them.

  7. I'm a huge fan of this aggregate site that not only lists news articles from all reputable media sources but also the news media's political slant. As much as I like to read news that reinforces my own viewpoint, it's important to see what other viewpoints are reporting (or NOT reporting).

  8. The Skimm! It's an email service that presents facts in a non-partisan way. It's quick and easy. And they also mention relevant company shareholders for transparency which I very much appreciate.

  9. I fully stan for Wash Post & Ny Times. But that's the j-school in me talking. BBC, WSJ, Reuters and Al-Jazeera are always safe and fair
