Today’s resolution: switching primary news internet sources

Date January 21, 2006

My primary source of news is National Public Radio — Austin has a really good station, and I’ve been a fan since my college days in Boston.

My default home page in all of my browsers is My Yahoo!, so I get AP/Reuters top headlines whenever I fire one up, whether I’m at home or at work. I use MSN Messenger and have news alerts turned on for that, too. Invariably, though, if I see an item that I want to read more about, I got to cnn.com. I watch practically zero CNN on TV, but I somehow got in the habit of using CNN’s Web site.

I’m going to try to make a change to the BBC as my primary internet news source. Off and on over the years, I have been able to catch the BBC World News on various NPR affiliates, and it does not take long to realize how Ameri-centric U.S. media outlets are.

We’ll see if my resolution sticks.
