    •  They're useful for headlines on foreign events... (4+ / 0-)

      particularly fast-breaking ones, that one can follow up elsewhere at will.  Even the Guardian can't be everywhere.

      But it's wise to view any news source (including DKos diaries and commenters) with skepticism.  Just the selection of posts is an editorial process subject to bias, as this Reuters thing illustrates.

      More data, more data, more data.  Constantly checking sources against other sources.  Staying informed when it would be so much easier not to be.

      This democracy business is exhausting.
