    For french news : Le Monde / Le Point. For English speaking news : NYT/The Guardian/BBC. Or just a Google news search.

    This is not going to be a helpful answer, but I honestly get all my news from sites like this and reddit. I try to make sure to actually read through the articles before commenting though.

      I get what you are saying. Nothing worse than people commenting on the clickbait title without having read the article.

        Exactly my issue. A lot of people feel like they can read a headline and then consider themselves informed. This is absolutely not true. I make sure to take special care when reading articles that claim "x study shows that y!" Often times, when you actually read through those, you find that the sample space is tiny and the variables are extremely biased.

    I get almost all my new stuff from the internet, like amazon etc. I sometimes go to the mall or Ross for clothes. I also like to hunt at thrift shops, but that's technically where I get my old from.

    NPR, Facebook, conversations at work, and The Daily Show. I used to catch wind of some major news on /r/OutOfTheLoop, but I've been staying off of Reddit recently.

    NPR is nice because it seems to have less spin and tries to get several sides on issues. Plus, I cannot stand the rest of the programming on other stations. It seems like it's tailored/standardized factory produced garbage to get the most listeners. If you have any special interests, you have to use one of those satellite radios or use up your cell phone data.
