Newspaper? TV? Internet?

How do you get the latest info (I don't mean searching for a particular subject) ? If you use 2 ways or more, select the one you use the most.

lightbulb Breaking News!

I don't read much, that leaves out the paper. I watch the news on TV alot, then if I want to look into a story more I will use the internet and sometimes find a good funny article on various sites. But overall TV accounts for about 80% of it. (Sports, Weather, Local News)

i dont really bother anymore, i mean before there used to be something interesting and new, now its the usual suicide bomb here, palestinian murder there, bush here bush there, not worth the while. If something is that big than i will hear about it anyway if not from friends over at the respectable threads section

I listen to the radio. Could a mod add that, or an "other" option?

I read the paper and watch the news. I don't bother to look up for news on the net because I usually have better things to do.

I listen to BBC Internet radio. For news mainly PM and World at 1. People who don't care about british domestic politics might prefer World Service.

I typically read the paper, the tend to go much more indepth with a story and I back it up with trusted sites on the net.

TV is useless, they give you the barebones of a story and it only makes the news if it's flashy and cool. What constitues the evening "news" wouldn't fill a colum on the frontpage of a paper.

Because I'm not happy until you're disgusted!

One vote for everything now. I like the tv for information. Here in Holland I don't have a feeling they are particually biased, so it's fine with me. I read the headlines in the paper, and I follow some things closely on the internet. But mainly it's the tv.

paper- sports, headlines and comics. If there's something interesting from the headlines i'll read through. Internet is for unusual stuff, and only sitcoms and movies on TV

Wow that was completely random.

I use the net, and occasionally read the paper. I also quite often read the paper on the net 'cos if I want to read a South African paper (in Australia), particularly one from my home town, its a lot less trouble finding it!

I actually end up getting most of my news from these forums.

Now, I read the newspapers and watch news on TV, as well...but the way it works is that I usually get on the computer before I flip on the tv or read the paper, and all the really juicy stories, somebody's made a thread about them.

All the less important stuff I'll pick up from CNN or the paper.

It all works out, though. Often enough I'll see a story on here, then a few days later somebody will say "hey, I just saw on the news today..." so I somehow end up ahead of everybody else.

Internet closely followed by tv, then paper, then radio.


The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I use them all. I look on the internet a lot, I watch the news on TV every day, and read the paper a good amount. I try to be informed about what's happening.

All three... I am a politcal junkie. Although my local paper (Vancouver Sun) is incredibly federal Liberal (and I am a fed conservative).
