Thread Name: BS: Where do you get your news ?
Subject: RE: BS: Where do you get your news ?
I get most of my news from National Public Radio and Minnesota Public Radio. It's what I wake up to, eat breakfast to, and listen to while I drive to and from work.
On my lunch break, I usually read the Wall Street Journal. I agree with Ron Davies' comments. I often wonder how the reporters keep their jobs.
I subscribe to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, but I don't read much of it. My wife reads a lot more than I do—she's quite the political junkie, and will call my attention to anything particularly interesting. We agree on most political issues. I trust her judgment. She tells me who to vote for in the primaries, and in the non-partisan local elections. Often, she's met the candidates herself.
My favorite columnist/author/commentator is Robert B. Reich.
