I'm serious. I'm really starting to hate my current one.

What's your favorite, and who's the best at reporting NEWS and not "sensationalism" (i love that term fitz)

CNN and FoxNews will not be accepted

KTM RC390 race
Yamaha R6 race

Google News (aggregator) and NPR for the most part, and occasionally The Post, Politico or the WSJ, though the WSJ has gone downhill since Rupy bought it.

NPR, though admittedly left of center, is one of the best from a journalistic perspective IMO.

LOL, I'm with you there. Typically hear about shit here or on twitter feeds, then if interesting enough I'll dig deeper.

So I guess my answer.. follow a few news sources on Twitter gives you quick links to stories and works for me.

I watch Fox News. I know it's not acceptable but the chicks on there are hot and I like the blue color. I don't like CNN's red color.

Oh and I forgot to mention I have a big crush on Fox's Shepard Smith. He makes me laugh every time I watch Studio B at 3pm or the Fox report at 7pm.
