What are your primary media sources?

As far as international media outlets go I tend to read BBC the most. It's free to read their articles online and it doesn't feel intrusive(doesn't force you to disable adblock) since it's a TV network and not a newspaper, therefore they don't depend on selling information printed on paper.

I really like The Economist, but my brother hasn't lived with me in years(he used to subscribe to it) so I no longer read that on a monthly basis. And there's a free online article limit on their website.

Then I read Die Zeit at times. Always good to rust off my German.

I really don't read any others on a regular basis.

What about you?

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"

I listen to news radio in the morning. And usually check Google news throughout the day, which collects articles from various sites. And then local TV news at night. I used to watch the nightly national news, but now I'm at karate every night during it. Don't have cable, so thankfully don't get sucked into any of those.

Well TV and the internet. I don't actually follow any new source though. Whatever I see in passing or mentioned around.

BBC news and facebook pages that usually link to the Guardian and Huffington Post.

Kindle Fire? My brother owns one, I think. I own a Kobo Touch. But that one is strictly an e-reader and not a tablet.

I love mine. It was an early Christmas gift last year from the mother-in-law. She got each of us one, but hubby barely uses his since he's only on wi-fi at his treatments and usually plays on his phone or watches their cable TV when he's there. I take mine to work with me every day and use it on my break and after I get off. I've even downloaded most of my D&D game book PDFs onto it for use when I go to my game group at the library. I even get games on it! The fact that I can check my emails and read up on the latest Trumpisms is a bonus!
