For the week of Super Tuesday, we've asked five documentary filmmakers to give us their five favorite news websites.
The Revealer is a daily review of religion in the news. The Revealer was conceived by Jay Rosen of New York University's Department of Journalism and created by journalist Jeff Sharlet, and it is funny, smart and irreverent.
Glassbooth is an extremely user-friendly clearinghouse of information about the presidential candidates and their positions on all the issues. It also matches you to the 2008 presidential candidate that best represents your beliefs. Itâ€™s straightforward and easy to navigate.
The Raw Story
The Raw Story is an "alternative news" nexus that focuses on sharing relevant news that is underplayed by the mainstream media. They also implement their own journalistic investigations and post exclusives on the site.
The Atlantic Monthly
You can count on Atlantic.com for up-to-date reporting and colorful analysis of the goings on around the Beltway and beyond. Andrew Sullivan's "Daily Dish" section is by turns infuriating and entertaining.
Professing to "cover hostility across the media spectrum," hostilecrowd.com is very busy this election season. It's fun to pop in every so often and see how the mainstream media's coverage of the candidates is rated for fairness. The site also links to lots of gritty political blogs.
