I've been working on improving myself of late, and I figure I should keep up with world events.
I've started reading The Guardian and the BBC. I like them both. The Guardian is biased, but biased in a way I agree with. Ha ha. I can't tell if the BBC is biased or not. Maybe I just don't know enough.
So, what do you read?

i find bbc news to be fairly unbiased, mostly due to how it will even report scandals within the bbc itself. the articles also tend to be written in an objective manner.
reuters is also worth reading, and seems to cover a slightly wider range of topics than the bbc (sections for china etc.) while also maintaining an objective style.

I live in western Europe, so in order to balance out the usual news-sources, I try to keep up with the NOS (the dutch state broadcasting society), the NRC website ( a dutch newspaper) the BBC and al-jazeera, the latter because it usually reports on things from another perspective, and even reports on things you wouldn't hear about in the 'western' media.
lastly i also visit the euobserver, because I'm mostly pro-european con federalism and I'd like to keep a good understanding about the situation over in Brussels.

The only news I read on a somewhat regular basis is Bioscience Technology.
I occasionally read some economics stuff like CNN Money and federal reserve dot gov.
I read Mainichi.jp, Asahi shimbun, and NHK world if I accidentally click the bookmarks or if I am suddenly possessed of a whim to read them.

I sometimes read the FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), a kinda conservative news paper in Germany

I don't really follow the news. I do try to read a few articles selected by the filter blog 3quarksdaily every day. It's kind of like a more middlebrow Arts & Letters Daily if you're familiar with that.

I'm not reading any specific news site, I'm using various aggregators including newsmap.jp, which fetches recent topics from Google News and evaluates them by counting related articles from other sources.
If something looks interesting, I check if there's an article by a trustworthy source about it.
I'm also aggregating various blogs and my social media feeds, which tend to be about technology, game development and cute girls.
It is needless to say, that this might look like a half-decent setup, but it fails at execution because I'm lazy, which results in me not knowing about pretty important stuff everyone else knows about.
I should read newspapers again, I guess.
