Alternative News

-- by Dave Johnson

I hope you all stop in every day at BuzzFlash - Daily Headlines and Breaking News. And tell your firends and relatives, too.

Other great sources are Common Dreams, truthout, The Smirking Chimp and AlterNet.

Of course I assumed you already visit Raw Story several times a day.

Who is at the top of your list?

Update - I was going to links to news, non-blogs. Anyway, commenters add:

Truthout was already up there

Hullabaloo and Eschaton, All Hat No Cattle, Bag News Notes, Crooks and Liars, and the Daou Report
Yellow Dog Blog
Steve Gilliard, Once Upon a Time, Talking Points Memo
Information Clearinghouse
The Next Hurrah

Of course, I recommend every blog on the blogroll over on the left. ESPECIALLY the ones you haven't heard of. That's where the FRESH perspective comes from. That's where the story you haven't heard about comes from. Try to make a habit of checking out a new blog every week or so.

I start every morning at DU and then proceed to every site mentioned in an angry/orderly fashion while listening to CNN. Then it is on to the foreign press.

Information Clearinghouse is absolutely essential.

You might also want to read the progressive news reports on DemocracyNow.org and InnWorldReport.net. Pull up yesterdays news reports on these two websites and you will be very suprised at what you learn.
