I'm a news and political junkie, and so I rely on the Web for around-the-clock updates. And these are the sites I use, daily and weekly, to keep myself informed.
- Current Events Over 70 links to newss sites on Africa.
The Age A very good Australian newspaper.
* Arts & Letters Daily An anthology of some of the best essays to be found online, from various sites and online versions of magazines. Required reading for the informed mind.
Asia-Pacific Media Links 48 links to various Asian & Pacific media outlets.
Boston Globe Online Despite its recent embarassments (of course, Mike Barnacle was a grade-A porker and always had been, and his roasting was decades-overdue) the Globe remains a good newspaper.
Buzzflash A site of links pointing out just how contemptible conservatives and Dubya really are.
China News Digest (CND) For when you want to know what's going on in China.
CNN Interactive With hourly updates and an unmatched range, you'll rarely do better for news on the Web than with CNN.

* Crisisweb An excellent guide to worldwide crises.

* Poynter.org Medianews Simply the best site on the Net for keeping track of the media's doings. Required reading for any media junkie.

The Times Internet Edition That's the London Times.
The Times of IndiaAnother excellent Times.
