One should avoid big media as far as possible. I was very amused and delighted when Taleb proclaimed in The Black Swan that he had stopped reading newspapers entirely since it added nothing of value  to his knowledge. However, with this stance in mind, if one wants to stay updated on global events, there are better News Sites than others. These are my five top picks, not sorted in any special order.

PS. Avoid any tabloid of any sort. Anywhere. Anytime.

“Brain Pickings is a human-powered discovery engine for interestingness, a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why, bringing you things you didn’t know you were interested in — until you are.”

I usually don’t read many blogs, and I’m not sure that Brainpickings fairly can be described as one. Anyways! Please check out this magnificent website full of intellectual and creative inspiration.
