Our Favorite News Sources

OUR FAVORITE NEWS SOURCES….A couple of days ago I asked my readers what news outlet they’d choose if they could only have one. Assuming I counted the answers correctly and successfuly ignored all the double posts, here are the results:

  1. New York Times (34 votes)

  2. BBC (30 votes)

  3. NPR (25 votes)

  4. Economist (12 votes)

  5. Financial Times (9 votes)

  6. Washington Post (8 votes)

There was also a smattering of votes for the Guardian, “my local newspaper,” the New Yorker, and various news aggregators.
