I think, including myself, we have all had a dig at the media and particularly a number of English newspapers. The Daily Mail often gets it in the neck and the Daily Telegraph is not far behind. I was simply wondering where we all get our news, information and so on from. I certainly channel and language hop on TV but actually find even dedicated news channels a bit lacking in depth. The exception there is when they do features, many of which are universally excellent. It is nonetheless newspapers and news magazines I trawl because I am far more interested in what is happening in the world generally than just in France, the UK or any single country.
So my own sources are as follows. I mainly use online versions of these - The Guardian (http://www.guardiannews.com/), Le Monde Diplomatique (http://www.monde-diplomatique.fr/) - there is an international version in English I very occasionally look at too, Der Spiegel (http://www.spiegel.de/) - again an international version in English for those who need or prefer, and then a random selection of leading national online versions of newspapers from wherever seems pertinent for work purposes mainly. I also like humourous journalism, so Le Canard enchaîné (http://www.lecanardenchaine.fr/), Private Eye(http://www.private-eye.co.uk/) - which is more a synthesis than a full version but fun anyway, and The Daily Mash (http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/) which is a rather anarchic take on Daily Mail stories and type of journalism. I also look at a few things like taz (die tageszeitung) (http://www.taz.de) in Berlin and its ilk elsewhere. I certainly do not plough through all of these every day, probably two most days and very selectively at that and I doubt many people would wish to. OK, I read a lot of news and that may be exceptional but rather than make assumptions about what other people do and do not read and fling proverbial mud at each other, what do actually people read (or watch) for news and information?
