Today’s blog time has been primarily allocated to producing the list of links at right. I’ll add to them from time to time, and welcome suggestions. I’ve tried to give a reasonable range of political and media sources, while staying away from the more extreme nutjobs that provide more heat than light. Therefore you will find Air America and Fox News, but you won’t find the individual Web sites for the blowhards who frequent those networks. Frankly I generally recommend the sites produced by print organizations over produced by broadcasters, though there are occasional exceptions. More importantly, read and watch news from a range of perspectives–politically, socially and geographically–rather than relying on one source, especially if that source tends to reinforce your own biases.
