The Economist is good enough, alright. Give Time a look too (or is it Newsweek? I always confuse the two).

Would make sure I got every issue of Village, Phoenix, Private Eye, Mother Jones, Phoblacht, Saoirse.

Occasionally read New Statesman and once read a copy of Magill. Highly entertaining in the way that the stories written by the six year olds my partner teaches are entertaining.

On the net would regularly read EU Observer, Working for Change, Indymedia and StateWatch.

But I thought Merle was the 32's poster boy ? constantly surrounded by a bevy of Armalite carrying beauties รก la Ghaddafi ....

maybe he's just spreading the love around

Wind, I would think. It almost always is!

Economist, New Scientist, Newsweek (well, my wife), London Review of Books. Online - BBC, American Conservative Magazine. I try hard to avoid things that I'm likely to agree with.

I find none of the newspapers any good these days.
The Irish Press was the only newspaper that ever was of any value to the Irish People. Broadsheet Newspapers died the day It became defunct.

A Tragedy. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I read The Economist, The Observer on a Sunday and I often look up Ethics & International Affairs by the Carnegie Council. Its pretty non-partisan which I particularly like so there is always a diverse set of opinions.

Agreed, it's always useful to know what half-arsed propaganda the Enemy are peddling this week. And sometimes you even come across a well-written and thoughtful article by a raving right-winger that makes you think. Not often, but it does happen sometimes :D

I generally avoid doctrinaire Marxist publications/websites, and the Indo stable though. Other points of view are fine, but in those two camps all you'll get is the same old nonsense they've both been peddling for decades reheated and rehashed.
