How do you get your news?

I used to start my reading day with The Drudge Report, which is an aggregator of news. Lately, some conservative voices have complained that Matt Drudge has gone over to the dark side, i.e., joined the Never Trumpers.

That may be so, but what bothers me more is that the site has become more confusing than helpful. It's always had a tabloid flavor to it, but now its titles muddle the picture of what's going on. Consider these recent headlines:

Trump Nears Defining Hour as Case Goes Public...
SCHIFF: Impeachable Offenses Include 'Bribery'...
Dem lead lawyer known for prosecuting mobsters, swindlers...
Republican senator: All comes down to motive...
President Considered Firing Intel Inspector General...
In private speech, Bolton says policy decisions guided by personal interest...
Napolitano emerges as top critic...
FACEBOOK Sued for Censoring Posts Naming Whistleblower...
Death Threats Increase...
Aides counseling Trump not to fire Mulvaney...
Senate trial to last 6 WEEKS?

Does that help you understand what's happening? It's just word salad.  It's hysterical. I wonder if Matt Drudge hired some wet behind the ears millennials, products of our woke education system, to run his site. There's no adult in the newsroom.

I've looked around for some other ways to start my reading day, and I'm experimenting with:

Gab Trends, said to be a direct challenge to Drudge.

News360. You choose the categories you want to follow, so you can get everything from health to psychology -- politics, too, if you want it.

I use Pocket, a Mozilla site, for bookmarking, and it also has a reader section, which I find well done.

For pure conservative political news, you can check Lucianne, PJ Media, and Breitbart, although I find Breitbart's orange and all caps type annoying. It's the little things, right?
