Just wondering what newspapers you guys read. Particularly, do you know of any Austrian/Libertarian-favorable ones? I generally follow the Wall Street Journal but they're a bit too hawkish for my taste. I also used to read the Economist but my impression is they seem to have turned more leftist lately. Anyway, curious to see where you guys go for news!

I don't read much news. Just headlines on Yahoo, really :P

I mainly read Mises.org and occasionally the Freeman Online.

There is also the website http://www.libertariannews.org/, but that doesn't appear to be updated thaaat often (one recent post of theirs claimed that they might begin more often.

Also, Reddit does a decent job of bringing things to my attention if needed.

As to foreign policy, I'm an ignoramus on that topic, so I am not the best person to ask.

Oh, by the way, this summer in Bulgaria I went to the National Library and I found by chance a magazine called Foreign Affairs. The title that caught my attention was "Why Iran Should Get the Bomb" - provocative, no?

Flipping through some of their pages, it seemed like the magazine was worth looking into. I will actually start a new thread on this.

Wheylous,

Foreign Affairs is a great magazine.  I've been subscribed to it for quite some time now, although I'm also subscribed to the New York Times.  I used to be subscribed to the Economist, but I stopped finding their stuff all that interesting.

Funny, I usually do not read newspapers, but when I do, it's either WSJ or the Economist. Both are quite far from being libertarian, but I find it more thought-provoking than reading, e.g., the LRC log (having to form my own reuttal is more interesting than just nodding).

Very interesting, especially considering the source!
