I just started reading City Room, by Arthur Gelb, about his life at the New York Times newspaper. Bought the book for my dad one Chanukah; thought he would enjoy. Mom gave it back to me, a few years ago when she was giving books to her library book sale. I grew up reading the Times as a kid, living in NJ. The "Week in Review" might take me the whole weekend to read, but at least I was up on the world news, when I was done. My sister and I always raced each other to glance over the Book Reviews and "Arts" sections.
Here's their homepage. They know they're good and are willing to entice you with an app where you can read 10 free articles each calendar month, as well as unrestricted access to browse the home page, section fronts, blog fronts and Classified. The NYTimes apps are free to download and install, and they include the Top News sections for free. Subscribers get unlimited access to all sections
Other places to get news? The internet, of course. I started reading the Daily Kos about ten years ago, when it was brand new. And I'm glad it survived. Founded and published by Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, it is the largest progressive community blog in the US. And real interesting. Take a look, and see what they're up to.
Of course, if you're a stock market watcher, you might enjoy the Wall Street Journal. You can get it risk free for 4 weeks; then pay $4.99 / wk. There's an interactive video app that is designed for the iPhone and iPad
I know I could add many more sites here and some will start name calling. So, with broken ankle, I will leave it at that and won't get political. But I'll say, follow the news in the world around you, and look out what's best for your beliefs. Remember, there is compassion in being informed. Hope you registered to vote.
