We all know mainstream media is full of lying, fact-omitting, biased, agenda-pushing political lapdogs, etc. etc. -- but what are the alternatives? What are your favourite news sources? Maybe they're objective, maybe they make absolutely no illusions about objectivity. I hope to make this a thread not of political argument, agenda pushing, and division, but rather a place where we can find out about new sources, new ideas, and overall become a bit more informed. Gwynne Dyer is a personal favourite of mine. He guest-lectured at my high school when I was 16. Really interesting ideas. Naomi Klein is another Canadian freelance journalist, as well as writer of the famous book "No Logo." Her other book, Fences and Windows, is a very interesting series of articles and speeches on the subject of globalization. Her articles appear in many news sources including Canada's own "Globe and Mail." Other than these two independent journalists, I find the BBC gives a more comprehensive dose of world news, though not infallible. I've basically given up on television news networks.
