"What website do you used the most as a source for the news?"


          

I use to use the Huffington Post, but it's falling off. I still use NPR and Politico.

My only issue is that I can't block certain news sources so I get a lot of fox news stories but there is a value to knowing what the other side is thinking.

It's good for shorter news stories.

For Long form I use:

Daily Beast
Salon
Slate (Short form)
Vanity Fair
New Yorker (da gawd)
nymag
Politico
longform.org (great aggregator)

like okp?

I think it depends on the type of news. real news vs celeb type. there can be a bit of cross talk on that, but if I want some bullshit, I'll go to a bullshit site. okp is actually a pretty good spot for getting both types of news.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

lol, nah..

but I did use it and Huffpo for a while to see how the far right and far left could twist the same story

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*
