PSFK Asks The Purple List, What Are Your Top Three Sources Of News & Information?

PSFK PurpleList experts give their favorite news and information sources and why.

PSFK recently asked our global network of experts on The PurpleList for their favorite sources for news and information. Given the extreme surplus of information available today, we wanted to know where current experts and professionals get their headlines from. Here are some of the best replies:

Jessica BennettSocial: Tumblr, for a range of what people are reading and talking about. It’s easier to digest than the tiny spurts of information on Twitter, is sortable based on categories like ‘news,’ ‘design,’ and ‘tech’ and is visually stimulating. 

Online: GOOD Mag for niche and Huffington Post for everything in between.

The traditional outlets: The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR. You still can’t top solid original reporting.

Helena Bouchez: When it comes to breaking news, Twitter has no equal. To see what stories are hot, and what the journalists care about, Muck Rack. For a quick trip around the world, The Week. For deeper dives, New York Times and Atlantic. Trends and insights, PSFK.

Trudee Lunden: I occasionally bookmark websites & mainly use e-news blasts from my favorite sources. I check the markets on CNN Money, get daily e-blasts from All Cars Electric (now part of Green Car Reports) & subscribe to multiple music related news feeds like Daily Chord & Lefsetz Letter. TMI (Too much information!)

Mitesh SolankiFavourite Channels: Twitter, LinkedIn, 7PM Project (Sydney)

Favourite Sources: Mashable, Forbes, New York Times

Wilbert Baan: This is definitely Twitter. There is no other system that had such an impact on how news travels. It doesn’t matter if it is about the Arab Spring, or a tree knocked down by a storm in my neighborhood. You will find it on twitter. Just make sure to organize lists.

For the rest I really love how Zite uses your social networks to make an aggregated presentation. And if you have enough and relevant feeds Google Reader (RSS) is still really good. I prefer using the Reeder app.

As for news websites, in my opinion the Guardian is probably the best online newspaper at this moment. Really trying to take realtime reporting and storytelling to a next level.
