What print newspapers papers and magazines do you read, and why? What kind of news do you get online?

I've always read the Macon Telegraph. That's a pretty obvious one; my dad works there. Even when I was a little kid, my dad and I would go through the comics page. There used to be a puzzle that was two pictures, and there were something like six differences between the two pictures that you were supposed to find. That was a Sunday tradition for us. 

Now, I still read the Telegraph, and the Times or the AJC when my dad brings it home. I also get news feeds from the Washington Post. I have to admit, I wake up every morning to CNN on TV. That's not internet or print, but it's there. My school used to have a program in which all the social studies classrooms would get copies of the Telegraph to read through in the beginning of class. I though that was great; students who didn't normally get or read newspapers had the chance to read them. Unfortunately, I don't know what happened to the program. I suppose that the budget cuts at both my school and the Telegraph made the collaboration impossible. 

I should probably also mention that I have a twitter. Yes, I gave in to the fad, but I think it's really useful. I can follow the White House, which probably posts something every two minutes. I also follow CNN, ObamaNews, and a few others. I'm new to twitter, so I'll probably find a few other news sources sooner or later. I don't get much news from Facebook. I don't really see how people do.
