Since this is obviously a group that goes to alternative news sources, I would love to hear what places you peruse.

I recently found a site that has a compilation of stories that is fairly interesting. This is more of a "news as entertainment" type site.

Fark.com

I also check out the Drudge Report often.

BBC World Service. I stream it or hear it on NPR at 9:00 pm.

I also like Reuters for headlines.

For commentary I like NPR and Salon.com

Joe Conason's Journal is loads of fun.

Here in Houston the radio is KPFT. Alternative media heaven. Pacifica Radio is the network of which it's a part. It's a listener sponsored network - without all the commercials plugs like NPR is giving in to. Democracy Now is an excellent program which airs on different stations throughout the country - there are many other great programs too. There is some excellent independent radio out there - you just have to find it and live in the right place.

Check out www.pacifica.org for information.
