Slow internet connection so most of my news comes from TV, newspaper and The Economist. Get some from Huffpost, Yahoo but not much. Also get soem forn Wonkette.
I get most of mine on Yahoo News and it's just the top stories and the best Sports. Read it when I come on every morning. Hasn't ever steered me wrong !
The main three, in order, are the ABC (Austrralia's national broadcaster), the Guardian, and the Hufington Post.
If something's happening in a particular locality that attracts my interest I'll check the local news sources.
Local new apps, has numerous hourly popups, from there to Internet stories.
