Toward Better News Sources
I’m not interested in just hearing what famous people tweeted overnight or what celebrities have had for breakfast recently. I like to hear my news through two lenses: Global perspective and Christian values. Two places I’ve found that deliver on these.
- The World and Everything In It Podcast – 20 minute update on news and special interest stories from a Christian perspective.
- The BBC World News Podcast – 20 minute update from around the world. Not necessarily a Christian perspective, but Western and Global.
I listen to World everyday and BBC if I have time during the day, or if something big has happened around the world. I feel I’ve gotten a better handle on the big picture with these two daily doses. I liked Denzel Washington’s recent quote about news sources,
“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed.”
What are you favorite news sources to help you stay informed?
