With the U.S. election season hitting its final stages, political junkies are inundated with information online. But where do you go to find the news you can trust? Do you go to political blogs, partisan ones, newspaper blogs, video sites, magazine sites? Lately, I’ve been enjoying Politifact and its “Truth-O-Meter” that gauge all the allegations made by both sides in the presidential race. What sites do you visit regularly and why? How has your online media diet changed this election cycle vs. in 2004? Share your thoughts in the comments below or by video on Seesmic.
