A 1918 Front Page of the New York Times -- a news outlet that I do not consult.
As a historian, teacher, and student of current events, I am constantly trying to keep on top of the latest developments around the globe.
To that end, I consult several news sources on a regular basis, which I present to you here. Please bear in mind that this is my short list -- I am certainly aware of, and consult, other sources when conditions suggest. Of course, I would welcome quality suggestions to supplement my list.
For Church News, look no further than News.va! http://www.news.va/en
New Advent does a great job in pulling headlines from multiple sources on Church news: http://www.newadvent.org/
The Drudge Report, while often a bit on the spectacle mongering side, often breaks noteworthy stories, or links to interesting headlines: http://www.drudgereport.com/
I like to check the Telegraph of the UK, as well: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/
I am a big fan of the graphics of the National Post of Canada: http://www.nationalpost.com/index.html
Finally, when events unfold in the Middle East, as they usually always do, I appreciate the quality of reporting of Al Jazeera (this, of course, is not an endorsement of their worldview!):
My go-to source for weather is the National Weather Service: http://www.weather.gov/
I find the intellicast site rather useful for radar and a few other items: http://www.intellicast.net/
My favorite blogger is the great Fr. John Zulhsdorf: http://wdtprs.com/blog/
Also a useful resource for Church News, Whispers in the Loggia: http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/
Finally, for Traditional Catholic news, I check Rorate Caeli: http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/
