Life after the Style Section….Where and how to READ ALL ABOUT IT!
There come’s a time when a girl’s gotta prioritise what she reads – even if her fave part of the newspaper is the Style Section.
Not that this glossier section is not relevant to me – it is my job – but one can get in the habit of digging through all the really important stuff to devour the more, well, fabulous.
My younger sister inhales news and politics like I do fashion. Whilst I watch the news everynight, I know it merely skims the surface of what there is to know. In a quest to be better informed, despite the miniscule window of reading time there is everyday, I asked her for the best go-to sites for excellent news coverage in a blink. Here is her rundown. Thanks gorgeous x
- Atlantic Media’s “Quartz” is a no fuss, no muss news source focusing mainly on finance, business and tech. Designed for tablets and phones, which makes for easy reading on-the-go.
- GlobalPost.com – is taking on traditional news organisations who are cutting back on their international news coverage (so wrong!) Global Post features daily international news by its own correspondents around the world
- NYTimes – say no more
- Politico.com – a must-read daily digest of news from Washington DC.
- Vanity Fair – of course!
- HuffingtonPost.com – politics with a smattering of pop-culture and commentary.
- Salon.com – covers breaking news, politics, opinions, culture, technology and entertainment.
- Daily Mail UK – to satisfy my daily gossip quotient!
- Reuters Global news blog – – mandatory for breaking international news.
- PBS Wide Angle – – for stories that should be headlines but are often not.
- IRIN, which stands for Integrated Regional Information Networks, is a service provided by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. This award-winning humanitarian news and analysis service covers the corners of the world so often ignored or under-reported.
