    Sources of Information

    I'm curious where most people get the majority of their news information, so here's a poll.

    I made it so you can only select one choice, but if you feel you don't have a majority source, then please note it in the thread.

    If I missed an obvious choice, select other and note it, please.

    I don't believe you spend 4 minutes a day learning about the news.

    Or are you assuming this poll was based on a year timeframe?

    What about internet news that's not a blog -- cnn.com, drudge, realclearpolitics, etc. I put down traditional print news, but internet news would probably be no. 1 if it was a choice.

    Also, People Magazine is not really "news"

    I broadcast the news. How come that's not an option?

    I think generally the aggregators should be classified by the typical source link.

    And yeah, I haven't picked up a real paper to read in a while, so electronic versions of print news is what I meant.

    Cnn.com is kind of a tweener, but I'd go with print on that too.

    I actually get mine from wherever I can. Aggregators, official sites, radio. But if I have to read it, it comes from the interwebs. No wasting paper for me, and I don't have a parakeet.

    Actually you're right, what takes most hours to understand takes me less than 4 minutes.

    If online real media sources are categorized as print, then that's what I use. CNN.com and occassionally WSJ for breaking news. Lots of sources for more in depth coverage.

    And of course, Huskermax, for sane, rational, well-informed and civil discussion. It has no peer.

    Traditional print by far!

    No way could I pick one choice. In general:
    • Local newspaper and local ABC newscasts for local news & weather
    • Local newspaper and Reuters/AP via my yahoo homepage for national & international news
    • Almost never Fox, MSNBC or CNN for anything except breaking news when something big is happening
    • HM for Husker news!
