This is a revised version of the post I just put up recommending a site. I decided I should include my essential daily reading list. This is not intended to be a list of favorites that I frequently check; these are my absolutely essential daily reads:
Bartcop: This one is habit-forming. Anti-Bush, Bartcop correctly pointed out the failures occurring in the Democratic party leading up to the elect- er, the betrayal of 2004.
Buzzflash: THE ULTIMATE NEWS SOURCE!! My obvious favorite. If I had to choose only one site off of this list, it would be Buzzflash.
Alternet: A great place to find progressive news and opinion from a variety of sources.
Working for Change: Like Alternet, an excellent source of information gathered from many other sources.
Daily Talking Points: This link takes you to the archives so you can see what you've missed if you don't already know about this one. Ordinarily, I check the daily post here. These helped get me through 2004. Also, see their main site, the American Progress Action Fund.
Think Progress: A incredible blog put together by American Progress Action Fund, it is great - I'm jealous.
I also check these weekly:
Bush Watch: Another great compendium of information.
Tom Tomorrow: My favorite political cartoonist.
Molly Ivins: My favorite columnist.
I am open to suggestions, as I am sure there are many worthy sites I did not include. My own list of links includes many that I know I should check every day, but don't (I am limited by 24-hour days). Hey - it's all a work in progress!
