It's much easier to get a broad perspective this way. With four web browsers open (CBC, The Globe and Mail, CNN, and BBC) I get a much better range of information for free than I would subscribing to a daily newspaper. For the most part I don't search for news on social media sites and blogs, rather I use them to gain an even broader perspective on a particular subject. That is not to say that I don't find useful information on social media sites and blogs (they can offer wonderful opinions and fresh information) just that I am more suspicious of the accuracy of such information and am more inclined to cross-reference with other news providers.
