I've always been a news nerd and get my news from a variety of sources.. online, TV and radio....after a while you pick up the leanings/biases of different sources and through mashing them end up with what you hope is somewhere close to an accurate appraisal of what is happening.

I'll list my sources below and my thoughts on them...interested to hear your thoughts and better alternatives.

GUARDIAN AUSTRALIA ONLINE...definitely controlled/edited by a late adapting hipster lesbian from the stolen generation that suffers from abandonment and genital confidence issues...BUT...great photos and excellent Long Story section.....sport is okay if you are into soccer.

CANBERRA TIMES...not bad overall...local issues and sport in general done well.

WAGGA DAILY ADVERTISER..mongrels put a paywall on it so only the story headlines..good fodder to rubbish my mates back in Wagga.

ABC RADIO NATIONAL...used to really like it but Fran Kelly has lost the plot...stumbles/bumbles/fumbles and is desperate not to offend anyone( unlike Leigh Sales)...chronic pusher of vague women's sports results...rushes the best guests...better to listen to it when she is on holidays.

FACEBOOK....yeah well....but every now and then something interesting pops up....especially stuff posted by mates... subscription to local sport and special interest FB pages are a good news source.

REDDIT....definitely leftist leaning but gets enough diversity in the comments section to give you a rough idea of what might be true.

THE PROJECT....headlines are okay..Walid's editorials a mixed but he is prepared to have a go...

CHANNEL 10 EYEWITNESS NEWS...bashings, crashings, slashings, smashings, trashings and fashion. Other than that its pretty ordinary with some decent sports headlines.

THOROUGHBRED VILLAGE...a scaled down reddit...really enjoy the disparate views and debate.

BIG SPORTS BREAKFAST..for breaking sports news..okay but very NRL centric..with Racing Radio for racing news.

Use to watch ABC NEWS, 7:30 Report, A Jazeerra..and 4 Corners but have gone off them of late.

Wait until Scamanda replies to this thread. You’re unlikely to get a better laugh all day.

In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!
