As I continue my quest for a post a day, I am starting out with the easy stuff until i get into my groove. So I continue with another favorites post…. Here are my favorite news sites: The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, CNN and the San Jose Mercury News.
I have online subscriptions to both the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. I understand what the Wall Street Journal is doing, charging for high end news content while giving away the editorial content for free. But I have no idea why The New York Times is charging for access to its columnists. What a quick way to kill off their readership of the opinions of the left of center (and Brooks).
I read CNN.com primarily for the home page stories. I check it more than most of the other news sites as it is updated more often. And I read the San Jose Mercury for the local business news and Bay Area news. Wish they still had Dan Gillmor, who just finished up writing some columns for the Financial Times (but is moving on again…)
And of course I use Google News.
