Online News

You work at a paper, so that’s sort of cheating, but do you really get most of your news online?

Ben Rosch: I get almost all of the news from my mom. She’s faster than any Internet connection I could afford.

Brandon Burt: I get all my news from, because Joseph Farah’s mustache makes me feel all giddy inside. By the way, did you know that the president is really a space alien?

Jamie Gadette: It’s a toss-up. I spend most of my time online reading blogs and Websites, but for in-depth stories I still turn to print magazines, books and newspapers.

Jeremiah Smith: I get all my news from The Onion, which I read online. I figure that most news is fake news anyway, so why not get a laugh as well?

Christopher Westergard: I get all my news from Twitter. It is my new go-to news resource now that I follow NPR, Perez Hilton, CNN, etc. God bless you, Twitter!

Doug Kruithof: Actually, no—there’s something about skimming the headlines (while farming for new clients) that can’t be replicated for me online at this point … and I stay up on serious news by watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

Joe Chepolis: More often than not. It’s a matter of convenience. Convenience and robes. I don’t own a robe to stroll outside in (while double-fisting whiskey and Cokes, of course) to get the paper every morning.

Jerre Wroble: First, it’s the radio alarm clock for NPR. Then, morning TV news as I get ready for work. Then, a deluge of Websites and blogs. I miss daily papers.
