Web Sites: TheMorningNews.org
Why I am recommending TheMorningNews.org:
Smart and witty, The Morning News is one of the publications that makes the Internet a superior place to get news and to share ideas. If you like your news straight up with a little provocation then you'll want to bookmark this site.
From the Web:
The Morning News began in 1999 as an email newsletter written by Rosecrans Baldwin for coworkers and friends. Preparing for a summer abroad, he asked Andrew Womack to take over editorial duties while he was gone. They soon began publishing the newsletter as a news-oriented weblog/zine with a New York flourish.
In 2002, they relaunched The Morning News as a daily-published online magazine with a dedicated staff of some of the web's best writers. Since then, The Morning News has been consistently recognized as one of the internet's leading independent publications and its readership has grown to include-we hope-you.
