I've started a bit of an experiment about 'news' reading. For a few days I've been glancing at headlines on several news sources - from the left to the right - MSNBC, NYT, CNN, FOX news, Instapundit, Drudge Report. ( I'm looking for a lefty blogger to fill out the far left spot to balance Drudge, but haven't found one I can stomach yet. The Daily KOS just pi$$es me off.)
The idea is to see what is considered newsworthy depending on your political point of view. I am considering adding a non-American news source to the mix - like BBC - but one that reports expensively on American issues. I try to spend 5-10 minutes or less on each site, just enough to scan the headlines and take a few notes and look at the lead pictures.
Let me know in the comments if you have any ideas about what I might add to make this experiment more interesting - I plan on doing this for about two weeks, then I'll pontificate on what I've observed.
