Default Spanish papers you read and sites you visit?

I taught myself Spanish and one of the ways I did this was to regularly buy the sports daily Marca and the Sunday edition of El Pais.

These days I read the sports paper AS online at www.as.com, I love the website of the free newspaper 20 minutos - www.20minutos.es and as a regular visitor to Menorca, I am trying to improve by Catalan by reading Avui (Today) at www.avui.cat

Las Provincias keeps me amused most weekdays with Levante or El Pais for the occasional change.
So far I haven't mastered the Spanish crosswords though, so still buy the odd Daily Express or Mail

At the moment, mainly El País (especially the Sunday edition!).

I read bilingual newspapers from the States. I like to read hola-arkansas because it's in English and Spanish. There is less stress because I do not have to look up a word in a bulky dictionary every time.

Default tvei, CNN+, CNNi, Digg

I watch tve international, and CNN+ for Spanish language news.
CNN international for English. (don't know how my building gets this channel, satellite?)
Otherwise, I use Digg online to see what other people are reading.

I vowed to never touch newsprint again, the day I quit my paper route.
(Honestly, it was the day I quit my parents' paper route, which they continued to deliver for years after I moved out.)
Press-Enterprise and La Prensa

Funny thing is; I still do my best work at 3 AM.

I only can recommend that you don't watch "Libertad Digital". I'm watching it right now and it's very funny. It's a debate in which everyone agrees. Everyone critizes the gobernment for everything and there are only little, minimmun differences between what people in the debate says. I always see this in this TV channel, always. If you want to know only one side of the story, watch it, if not, avoid it or watch it just for laughs.

Reminds me of the Fox news channel.

No problem! Although I must admit that I had to look up how to spell "criticize".

When was the last time you heard someone on Fox News criticize this administration? (Besides O'Reilly, who just started to this week.)

Everyone agreeing to criticize the Gov? Sounds more like MSNBC.

Anyways they're all for entertainment purposes only, IMHO (every news channel, I mean,) you just have to know the particular slant of each channel before you start, and go from there.

My Great-Grandmother says TV (and even radio) has been that way from the beginning, even all those old anchormen that we now look back on as if they were some sort of bastion of accuracy and noble, journalistic, unbiased steadfastness. She has this crazy idea that you can't believe eveything you read, either. Crazy

I meant that it reminded me of Fox news because Fox news is obviously very biased to the right and that one should only watch it for laughs, not for actually news.
