March NaBloPoMo: News

This month's NaBloPoMo theme:  news

This month we'll be talking about news. The places you get your news, the amount of time you use focusing on the news, and critiquing the news to see what works and doesn't work.

Well, that's an easy one for me, I  love the news, world events, politics, even entertainment news and gossip.

I subscribe to The New York Times, Newsday and The New York Daily News.  My Facebook feed includes The Times of Israel, The Jerusalem Post and Ha'Aretz, as well as news feeds from WNBC and WABC. 

I watch the local news every day, and my Sunday morning viewing must include Face the Nation or Meet the Press.

Two of the presets on my car radio are the all-news stations, 1010 WINS and WCBS-AM.

I must have been 11 or 12 when I started reading the newspaper every day.  Newsday was an afternoon paper back then, you'd have to wait for it to show up...and then I'd argue with my mother about who got to read it first.

Yes, this month is going to be fun for a newshound like me.

I was lucky, Newsday was usually delivered after my mom left for work, and my dad would pick one up while he had a cup of coffee before work each morning.

For years, I was the only reason my mom kept the Newsday subscription.

Nowadays, the only local radio station I listen to in the car is the local NPR affiliate. No all news stations in Tampa like 1010Wins or CBS.

Washington has WTOP, which was the fallback when WAMU didn't have Morning Addiction or All Things Considered.

You were lucky. I can't tell you how many times we fought over who got to read the paper first.
