Today’s Plinky prompt: Where do you get your news?
I wake up every morning to NPR on the clock-radio and I also have my car stereo tuned to the local NPR station, so for national and international news, that is my primary source. I don’t watch television news at all or read any particular newspaper frequently.
I used to visit the New York Times website regularly, but now I depend on an RSS feeder (I use Google Reader) to aggregate articles from a few news sites. I’m trying to be better about keeping up with local news, so I’ve added a few local newspapers and blogs to the list. I also use Google Reader to keep up with professional news, like Inside Higher Education.
My favorite blog for commentary on news and politics is Andrew Sullivan’s The Dish, which is now part of The Daily Beast.
Lately I have been using Google Plus to identify online content worth reading. I have circled a number of science experts and educators, so I see a lot of exciting science and higher education news in my G+ feed every day.
