This is not a comprehensive list of sites or people that I follow for news and political information. It is in relative order of importance to me when I want to double check what I am hearing or reading from other sources. The list is compiled and posted here thanks to my friend JL’s inquiry to become self-educated. I thank her for trusting my opinion enough to ask where to go for information that is easy to read and understand.
My suggestion is to visit one site at a time searching for information that is of interest to you. When you feel brain-fried simply step back, take a break. Discuss what you read with someone else you trust if you feel unsure or confused about what you are reading. You might find that you understand more than you think you do.
Where I research first and info I trust:
- Heritage Foundation at heritage.org
- Heritage Action at heritageaction.org
- American Enterprise Institute at aei.org
- The Federalist Society at fed-soc.org
- Discover The Networks at discoverthenetworks.org
