I get most of my political news from the Washington Post and New York Times. Mainstream news is essential for the detailed coverage that alternative media are unable to afford. But I believe alternative media is essential as well, in providing a counter to the capitalist, corporate, center-left, and patriotic bias of the mainstream press. Below are some of my favorite alternative sources with a brief description of each. Where do you guys go for alternative media? The Militant "A socialist newsweekly published in the interests of working people." Socialist Workers Party organ. Communist ideology. Good coverage on labor issues, excellent analysis of international politics. Workers World "Workers and oppressed peoples of the world, unite!" Workers World Party organ. Stalinist ideology oriented toward Pyongyang. Good coverage on labor issues, feminism. Sometimes good articles on Third World Marxist countries. World Socialist Website "Published by the International Committee of the Fourth International." Ultraleft sectarian-Trotskyist ideology. Detailed and explicit in its political analyses supporting the Socialist Equality Party. Industrial Worker "The voice of the revolutionary industrial worker." IWW organ. Syndicalist ideology. Good articles on labor history. Democracy Now. "Independent global news." Independent nonprofit. Petty-bourgeois democratic ideology. A lot of coverage of issues ignored by the mainstream media as well as ignored aspects of issues that are discussed.
