Looking at contemporary culture from a Christian worldview

3 News Resource Recommendations

Leave a comment

There are many ways to get our news these days, be it from our local newspaper, favorite 24-hour news channels, apps, or other sources. I want to highlight three news sources below that I use on a regular basis, and you might want to check them out. They are:

The BriefingThe Briefing is an approximately 25-minute-long podcast from Albert Mohler that provides a daily worldview analysis about the leading news headlines and cultural conversations. He addresses stories that I don’t hear about anywhere else. The podcast is usually posted by 5:00 am Monday through Friday, and it’s been required listening for me each weekday morning for many years now. You can listen to the podcast on iTunes, via Dr. Mohler’s website, on his app, or you can sign up to have it sent to you via email. When you have it sent to you via email, you will also get links to the articles that he refers to during the program that day.

Not the Bee. Many of you will be familiar with Christian satire site The Babylon Bee. Not the Bee is run by Adam Ford, founder of The Babylon Bee. The site shares real news stories that are so outrageous that you would think they were actually satire from The Babylon Bee – thus they are not from the Bee.

Tucker Carlson Tonight. This has consistently been the highest rated show on cable news, and is the only one that I watch on a regular basis. And while Carlson would generally appeal to conservative viewers, he has done surprisingly well with Democrat viewers in the 25-54 age group in his timeslot.

These are three very different news sources that I use to keep up with the news. They won’t necessarily be for everyone. What news sources do you use and would recommend to others?
