Each morning, I start my news reading with Twitter. I’ve cultivated my timeline to act as a sort of news wire. I actively curate the list of top-notch journalists I follow. (On Twitter, I prefer people to platforms like the New York Times official account.)
From there, I do turn to those platforms: I read the New York Times and Washington Post (digital subscription), Cleveland.com, the Columbus Dispatch, the Chronicle-Telegram in Lorain, and then I run through some standard news.google.com searches for keywords (“Lake Erie,” “opiates ohio,” “ohio governor,” “medical marijuana ohio,” etc). If I have time, I hit the Toledo Blade and the Akron Beacon Journal too.
That’s the gist of my morning news consumption. Facebook offers nothing for me in the morning, and I rarely check it until midday.
