    Question YOUR Top 3 Sources for News.

    If you had time to read only 3 news articles per day, where would you go to get your news? Would you read all 3 from one source or would you go to 3 different sources?

    If you get all your news from a left or right leaning source, I don't care. I'm just curious.

    3 different sources but I'd have to think long and hard about which ones.

    Unfortunately, I should be able to get all the facts from one source (or every source should report the same facts) and then my only focus would be on which commentaries I'd listen too/read. Unfortunately, there is no news anymore, only commentary.

    I'd use a local source, a national source, and a world source.

    Today I read 3 news articles. I read about the Israeli strikes against Syria from the Wall Street Journal, The Benghazi Whistle Blowers from Fox News and the proposed internet sales tax bill from CNN. Tomorrow, I think I will pick one subject and see if I can find it on 3 different sources and compare.

    Well, I don't know about the other two but one would be The Economist.

    I tend to use cnn, fox news, and yahoo. Once I find a story I want to read about I start looking elsewhere to get the whole story.
