    Pretty self explanatory. Looking for a better place. Interested in global happenings and american news mostly. I am sick of hearing about non news stories on my news website.

    I used to go to BBC, but was looking for something different.

    Please include where your from to help separate the sites.

    www.whatreallyhappened.com is a pretty good news aggregator site. (They collect and post news stories from a wide variety of sources.)

    lol.....man, you're quick. I added that "until my brain......" comment about 5 seconds after my first post. Felt I needed to clarify things a bit. I watch Fox News for 2 reasons. One, is to get the other side of the story from those I typically disagree with and two.........for comic relief.

    But you ej, say you watch MSNBC. That station to me is the EXACT same thing as Fox News. The only difference is, is it's coming from the other side of the coin. Both just as dogmatic in their thinking as the other.

    I mean that might be true to an extent, but fox is far further to the right than msnbc is to the left. I don't like a lot of the things msnbc does, I probably should have listed it last.

    I disagree, but what's really interesting is that anytime that I have EVER mentioned that Fox News leans right to those that are an avid Fox News viewer, they will totally disagree and restate Fox's banter about being fair and balanced. They don't see it as a far right news outlet just as most avid MSNBC viewers would not agree that MSNBC is a far left news outlet. I just think it's two sides of the same coin.

    I'm always one to be out of the loop when it comes to news. I suppose I could say I get my news from the internet. Haven't watch tv "news"(or tv at all) for half a year now.

    I'll watch CNN and MSNBC, but I get my news from various sources online. I like to check out The Guardian and McClatchy websites to get a different look at things.
    To understand what the latest numbers mean for the economy, Calculated Risk is the place to go. It's been said he's always right.

    I never trust anyone who states that either they or someone else is always right.

    It was James Hamilton from Econbrowser and that's not exactly what he said. You can trust him.
    Maybe I should have said "it's been implied" or something like that. What he said was:
