    I don't have any in particular, but I do seem to have a preference for foreign sources. Afterall, they have no emotional attachment to things that are internal to the US; so they just report the news as it is.

    But they do have emotional attachment as it relates to them. Being a foreign source is not the standard I would use. There are good foreign sources for sure (as I said my go-to source is Brit) but they all have their own agendas.

    I wouldnt agree with this. They are always bashing the government for this or that. I would say they tend to focus only on negative things. Than again that is what sells.

    There's only one news source I need. It's RFD's Facebook page.

    That's not true Joe. Most of the American journalists are so stuck up Obama's ass it isn't even funny.

    But I usually go for AL Jazeera, Dailymail, and Foxnews

    If you get all your news from a left or right leaning source, I don't care. I'm just curious.
    I find your question flawed. There are two websites I go for "news" but I don't go to them for a particular article. If you asked what three sources would I use to get news, that would make a bit more sense (and it appears that is how most people answered) but what you actually asked is where would you go if you could only read three articles a day. Anyone that actually cares wouldn't do that. They may read the same article on three different sites to get the different spins but looking for three articles to read on one site or one article on three different sites just doesn't make much sense to me...
