Poll Question:
How do you get your news?

I'm looking for your primary news source, the first thing you look at in the morning, your most trusted place.

This poll has two parts, you can answer the poll, and the second part is to specify the specific source once you've chosen your medium.  For example if you select television you could explain by saying you watch ABC or if you select internet you can give the name of the web site like CNN.

Responses:
Television
Radio
Internet
Newspaper
Word of mouth
What's news?

Internet: I look at newspaper's websites - they are strangely up to date & free & sometimes when I buy next day's paper, there is the same article in print that I read the day before
btw it's mainly business news I read --- other news it's better not to read, bleh

NRK and various other channels in my country is non-biased so its just to turn it on and watch. I use online for my second source, or non-covered news.

Internets. I'll occasionally watch the Daily Show and/or Colbert Report on TV (okay, so that doesn't really count).

For me it's the newspaper. Every morning, as soon as I'm dressed, I go downstairs and read the newspaper. I'd even go as far as to say my morning has not started properly without the newspaper and a cup o'joe.

As for specifics, I read two newspapers. Seeing as how their Dutch newspapers their names would not tell you much, a description might suit better. The first one is a local newspaper, which next to Dutch and global news, has a section with very local news. The second one is a more general right-wing newspaper. which has more Dutch, global and scientific news.

I get my news from "All of the above", which is not listed. Although seldom do I read a physical copy of a newspaper.

It is most convenient for me to listen to a radio throughout the day so I get most of the national and local news from the radio. I also check various sites on the internet.

Aww... here I thought you were saying god was speaking to you. Or that you had some kind of hotline to Jesus. Then again it's a good song (All the Above) if you're into hip hop.
