-The list so far.
General British Sources(world wide coverage)
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.
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/ - The Times (Britain) website. Murdoch-owned newspaper, like Sky Television, but generally pretty fair and intellectual coverage. Right-wing slant.
The Independent Much like the Guardian, but more so.
General American Sources (world wide coverage)
NPR- partially state-sponsored,intelligent and balanced coverage in the US. Spends a lot of time on international issues. which is apparently rare there.
http://www.nytimes.com --bit of a liberal slant, but reports news from all around the world.
http://www.neowin.net[/url] They're okay, they cover all OSes, but it's a bit of a Windows slant. And the forum attitude is crap.
http://www.theregister.co.uk/ - The Register. Similar to /., posting Science/Tech news from across the global. Seems somewhat anti-Microsoft in a very vendetta-like manner
http://www.newscientist.com/home.ns - New Scientist online. Doesn't give you the wealth of content that the magazine does, unless you pay an online subscription.
Collectors of News from other sources
http://www.fivethirtyeight.com --blog, but talks about most major political stuff going on in the US. Liberal slant.
Taegan Goodard's Political Wire: A political blog like above, but more with more interesting pieces, better, more level headed reporting, and an overall extra dollop of awesome sauce.
Politico: The political news site. Nice array of articles and blogs. Of particular interest is Politoco 44, which is a collection of updates (I'd hesitate to call it a blog) and links to in-house articles on what Obama is up to. Ever so slightly conservative, but you have to be looking for it to see it.
