News-Junkie

Getting older is funny...I find interest in things I never thought possible!



Besides the mini-van, wheat grinder and bosch mixer excitement, I must confess that sometime in the past year or so I've become much more fascinated with the news.



We don't have cable. (I know...how do we survive?!?!) The main reason I dream about cable right now, is so I can have good news channels whenever I want. I'm super excited to run on the treadmill in the morning and try to time it so that it's not too early so I can catch the morning headlines at 7am on the Today Show at the end of my workout (but still get done before I have a bunch of little helpers).


So the majority of my news intake comes from the internet. I got into this kind of haphazardly so I really haven't compared the different news sites. I started going to ABC news because Ryan would leave it up.


My question to you: what internet news sites do you like? Why? Is there a better site I should have bookmarked?

I quit getting the newspaper - some weeks it would just stack up and get thrown away. I like to listen to the first few mins of news in the morning while eating breakfast but need to supplement with something on the internet. MSN is just not enough.

I just discovered google news. You can personalize the page so that the sections you like are at the top. You can also "create" a section with the topic of your choice. For example, I created an "education" section, so I get articles having to do with education. Anyway, I quite like it. I do have to be careful about reading the news though. Some things in the news really get me freaked out or depressed about all the bad things there are out there. I just try to read the interesting or uplifting stuff. Have fun!
