Information Sources

Recommended Posts

Hi HPCersJust had a thought - what are your favourite information sources on the internet?All subjects, but mainly curios where you go for real information, in the same way we all come here to keep ourselves abreast of house price and economy matters. There's so much brainwashing and VI sponsored propoganda, its hard to know where to look for the truth.I'm not posting this topic because I have any strong opinions on particular sources, on the contrary, I would like to be pointed in the direction of interesting information sources and I'm sure many others would too.For example I quite like Guido Fawkes and there are often useful links on there.So whats your first port of call in the morning when you want to know what's going on in the world?

The BBC!

No seriously, it's too easy to let the television run on, in the background.

Otherwise browse through, HPC, The FT, Bloomberg or Reuters, The Independent, Marketwatch, Investmenttools.blogspot.com, Zerohedge, ADVFN, iii.co.uk, GEI, seekingalpha.com, beanotown.com.

I'm normally specifically looking for something like mortgage approvals so I go direct to the statistical releases, for example the BOE website. I don't like to read the news articles until I know the actual figures. That way I can decipher the spin.

HPC, its been my news aggregater since 2004...

yes, interestrateripoff's service and coverage is excellent, and more to the point it is free.

also I take my hat off to him for his unrelentingly droll (and repetitive) yet pithy/relevant/funny comments, which used to annoy me but which I now find to more akin to a cube of sugar in some rather bitter coffee.

If you like guido, you'll appreciate

etc

There are more ruthless sources, too. The best sources to cut through the ********, though are actually the comedy ones, like

http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/

http://www.dailysquib.co.uk/

The truth is best expressed through comedy I reckon. People "get it" more. It's not that we are a soundbite generation, it's that knowing the sordid details about the truth, the corruption, it only leads to heartache - knowing that it is all unadulterated and unchallenged, seems like it ever will be. Like the way GB gets away with decimating our economy whilst tricking half the population into believing he's their working class hero. It's pure comedy, and asking for it.
