This could be a volatile thread, but what the heck.

I enjoy several blogs and new-related web sites. Most of my news and opinion now comes from the web. In fact, it's been months since I had the TV on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, or the network evening news. I don't get a newspaper. Don't watch local TV news.

I wonder what blogs you guys like, and I'm wondering especially if I can find more interesting blogs to follow.

For news, I get most of it through My Yahoo! home page, set up with feeds from Yahoo! News. I also check in daily with the Huffington Post for news and opinions.

My favorite blogs are:

Deus ex Malcontent, by Chez, a former CNN producer
Bob Cesca's Awesome Blog! Go!
The Daily Dish by Andrew Sullivan
True Slant by Matt Taibbi

I too would like to find more and better web sites for information. Here's the ones I usually follow.

Drudge Report News.
Scientific AmericanScience news.
Yahoo finance Financial news.
The Kirk Report A financial site, the free part is getting rather sparse lately.
Stock Timing newsA stock market analysis using charts.
Free Stock Charts Not a blog, but a useful site nonetheless.

I can't WORK, watch programs/movies, play video games, listen to music, type here AND read blogs!! For pete's sake, man, unplug before it's too late!

JP, you forgot about ICanHasCheezburger. Or were you just not claiming it today?

I'm not sure I want to post all of the web sites I frequent.

Although I do like What Would Tyler Durden Do? for its snarky coverage of celebs, with paparazzi pics galore.

No, no, it's a collector's item - I couldn't part with it for less than $49.95! ;\)

I have a thing for poker blogs. A few I have followed, though not much anymore.

I guess those are pretty much the blogs I read, although I have a number of other sites I go to regularly.
