I rarely read our local paper or watch the news on TV, so when I hear someone mention a news event in passing -- this week, it was the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas -- I look online to get the details. My first choice is CNN.com because if it is something that has hit the national news, they will have it right on the front page. When you click through to the story, there will be updates with time stamps. I trust this site because the TV network that started it has been around for ages and is often quoted as a trusted source. Sometimes CNN lets me down. One of the most publicized incidences was when Michael Jackson died, and TMZ was reporting details of his death for hours while CNN and other traditional news outlets were still saying it was a rumor. I like to think that happened because CNN was waiting until they got solid information before reporting Jackson's death as fact. That makes them look more trustworthy in my eyes.
When it comes to news, do you have a particular website that you trust most?
