    Default News Links Thread

    Here's a thread for everyone to share any good news links they may have. I personally tend to turn to Google News and UN Wire for my updates.

    Google News: http://news.google.com/nwshp?hl=en&tab=wn&q=

    UN Wire: http://www.unwire.org/

    Really. If you learn to read between the lines, you can actually glean a pretty good understnading of the state of things.

    I always thought www.theonion.com was a website for fake, or "made up" news. I probably have it mixed up with another site though.

    It is. It's like the reports on the Daily Show; not real, but it points out the idiocies of contemporary news with astounding wit.

    I had an Onion book a while back, though I've never quite made it to the site. Funny stuff.

    I tend to watch the SBS news (that's like a channel down here.) It's the only source that isn't baised to the extreme and it shows relevant material - unlike other channels where all they talk about is some local conman. I hate trivial news, it's so... trivial.

    If I see an issue that interests me, I usually go and research it on the net somewhere. And yes, theonion is very clever sometimes, however it isn't exactly a pure and reliable source itself.
