I actually use all kinds of internet sites because it is interesting to see how each one presents the same story giving it their own twist. Twitter is the best because breaking news is instant which gives me a heads up to look at some of the different sites. I do know that some people only look at one site but I think that doesn't allow them to see the other side of the story or how it is presented from others with a different point of view.

Twitter for breaking stuff (like updates on the Boston bombing, sports trades/injuries, etc.)

Reddit front-page usually has some breaking stuff too.

Deadspin for some sports wrap-up, as well as other related sites.

Oddball stories: Gawker and other sites.

LOL..seriously; that got reported? Someone sure is a sensitive little nancy.

If you are so easily butt-hurt, maybe the "off-topic" section is too much for you to handle.

What is news? ESPN? I only pay attention to sports.

In reality I'd say Twitter and honestly the Daily Show/Colbert Report - I don't take the commentary of those guys seriously since it's satire - but as far as the headlines it catches me up and then I can decide what I want to look at further.
