Political

As a student of Political Science, I find it very important to know what is going on in the world. However, that doesn’t mean I always find time to read the news. Even worse, I understand the importance of reading multiple news sources and not only relying on one outlet, but sometimes only go to one station or site. So here is a list of newspapers and political awareness sites that I’ve found very helpful in assisting me with staying up-to-date. Althought I am very partisan and lean towards a certain political stance, I try to look at a variety of sources from different perspectives. Give it a shot, you’ll feel much better when you know whats going on (er, or perhaps worse…)

www.motherjones.com

www.cnn.com

I also HIGHLY recommend watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, for entertainment sake.

Also, be weary of what is actually “news” and entertainment. For example, Glen Beck is NOT a news source. His ideas are NOT truth, just simply his opinions. Sorry, I really don’t like that guy had to let you know what I’ve learned in my Poli Sci classes .
