Do you regularly watch or read news from an international news source?

BBC news is one of my main sources, although I don't read (or watch) a lot of news nowadays. I find them a lot more objective on American issues.

Britain is being over-run with Muslims right now. America is next.

No, some BBC. When my daughter was in Paris the winter Olympics was odd. She says next time there on she wants to watch them in French. Not that she understands what she's there saying but she likes their attitude.

Not really sure.
Is twitter considered a national source or international source.
I get news from twitter sometimes hours before a traditional news agency releases their Breaking News.

Try the CBC. Of course they have good Canadian coverage but they have great international stories. This includes US news that I never see on CNN or any others.

If I'm driving late at night, I'll catch the BBC World Service, but not regularly.

I read BBC for a laugh. News sites in the UK are as bad as here.

Interestingly though, I found American sources to be more objective on the Scottish Referendum. The UK press was too obsessed with tracking who just said what, when, to who etc. US press kept better focus on important, relevant issues.

So I think it helps to be at a remove for objectivity.

Yes, even if I don't count our "local" CBC affiliate on the other side of the border, eh?

I do. CNN flips to their international feed from 9 PM to 1 AM, which I watch. I also watch Sky News International out of the UK and Todo Noticias from Argentina online. I read Clarín and La Nación, newspapers from Buenos Aires, online as well.
