Moderate News Source, Please
Brooklet Correspondents

Ok, I am on a blogging rampage.

Can someone recommend a reasonable, moderate, middle of the road Internet news source?

I have used Yahoo as my home page since forever. I used to think they were a quick and fairly accurate source of news and happenings. I have ignored their leftward creep until now, but it has reached an intolerable crescendo! I can't open an article without it supporting gay rights (especially common) or some other left leaning/liberal cause, or discrediting any and all conservative positions (Bush/Cheney bashing is always popular as well).

I do not really want to use Fox (same reason) or MSN, or MSNBC, etc (same reasons)>

Suggestions please.

AJE - AlJazeera English is good for world news and objective US coverage - but not very in depth on the US side (which is why I like it). BBC is OK as well. I also like GPB news.

Unfortunately, Charlie, I also find most news (?) sources biased one way or the other. It's good to find a real right wing site and a left wing site - compare them on a single issue and split the difference to get an approximation of the truth,

Too much work for most people.

Charlie I am kind of like Bryant; I like fox for general (non-political) news because they seem to cover things others don't but if it is political I always double check CNN for a second view.

I have Google chrome and google news is pretty good because they use news sources from everywhere!Reuters, AP, Washington Post, WSJ, AJC, NYT just to name a few and many,many international papers-I like the variety -it appeals to my ADD and like Bryant I find that I can't find ANY news source that I totally agree with, so I check them all out and make my own decisions about the truth.

NPR has a nice website, Reuters and the Associated Press show up on a lot of the aggregators like the aforementioned Google. You're certainly right to look to a variety of sources rather than just one, a trick the Internet was--literally--invented for. I'm not a big fan of paywalls, which you run in to on sites like the NY Times and LA Times (they allow a certain number of "free" views per month.

Also, for longer-form, in-depth journalism, I love the magazine websites of publications like The New Yorker, Atlantic, The Nation and others. A pretty good cross-section of right and left is available and long-form tends not to be as abrasive or dogmatic, even when coming from a certain political point of view.
