Our generation is seriously informed - breaking news hits twitter before the national stations can pick it up!! Gone are the days of reading an actual news paper - I mean that news is so yesterday (kidding...)! As young professionals or even just humans, it's our responsibility to have an opinion, to know what's going on and to be well informed!! So the question remains - how do you get your information?
For me it's really a combination of a lot of different things!
If you take anything away from this post - please sign up for the Skimm!! You get an email daily that breaks down all the current events into layman's terms. I read this as soon as my alarm goes off and sometimes it's things I've heard the day before, but most of the time it's pertinent information to help me stay informed. The topics range from issues with the government to who is winning in the NCAA tournament! This little email will change your day!
While getting ready for work I watch the Today Show, which sometimes is news worthy, but other times it's just a glorified E!News program. Since I work behind a computer all day - I try to check the news as much as possible and visit CNN a few times a day.
I peruse online media as well and check out the headlines to each of the papers & read the ones that sound interesting to me. Luckily I am able to view the online version of The Wall Street Journal through a work subscription, but most of their articles are open to be read. The NY Times & Boston.com (locally) are great sources of information to me as well.
Probably my favorite way to get the news...is through Facebook & Twitter...sad but true!! Just yesterday there was a 9 Alarm Fire in the Back Bay (where a lot of my friends live) and I found out through Twitter!! Like it or not - this is the fastest and probably easiest way to get the news now!
April 10th The Mindy Project is back!!
How do you like to get your news?
P.S. Did you see my post on Wedding Party's blog yesterday?!
