There are a few different types of media that the Internet has to offer and I really appreciate the diversity. I thought I would write a quick post on the differences between the different types and maybe you can comment to let me know if I should pick up some different ones or maybe stop reading one for one reason or another.
For extremely accurate information but at the cost of a large delay between when something occurred and when I see it in front of me, I still trust print media over anything on the Internet. One type of print news media that I particularly enjoy is The New York Times. The odd thing about me enjoying print media so much and trusting it so much is now I read it in a non print form, on my Kindle. The New York Times, while often biased on particular matters, has great and trustworthy content.
For the same delay as the above sources but often containing much more interesting news (and also less accurate: See the taser post) I turn to the following sources listed in my order of trust: The Register, The Telegraph, BoingBoing, Digg, and Gizmodo.
If I want to know what is happening right now or I am just straight up board I turn to: Reddit (While I enjoy Reddit I don’t trust the content)
