The Guardian - good, well reported with a liberal/leftwing slant. Also one of the best non specialist papers for more technological matters. A U.K paper but very good international coverage, quite highbrow as well.

Slashdot "news for nerds, stuff that matters" User submitted blurbs on technological and digital rights issued, very limited in scope but good in what it does. Has a heavy bias in most issues so ymmv.

The Independent Much like the Guardian, but more so.

All I can think of.

I'm a particular fan of Slate

BBC News has a solid online presence as well.

Oh, andThe Onion. A respectable publication, generally accurate and they try to be absolutely impartial.

They're also really nice because they almost always cite their sources.
