I'm saddened to find no mention of RSS in the thread :(.  I still use it for a few things (Graudniad (sic), Scotsman, xkcd, .......) but it is gradually dying out.
One of my main news sources is through various RSS feeds through the Feedly App (which also picks up YACF)

In order of frequency:

Print: der Spiegel, Kindle edition at a rate of one copy every two weeks, not quite enough to justify a subscription
TV: mdr AKTUELL
TV: rbb regional news
TV: about 20 other german free-to-air satellite TV channels
TV: Al Jazeera English
TV: BBC News 24, whatever's showing in the 5 minute period before the 5-min-before-the-hour weather
Print: Tabloid headlines, viewed on working days when I pass by the newpaper stand to collect my lunch in Sainsbury's, Friar Street, Reading
Online: YACF, I lurk in POBI and then follow up some of the themes in the WWW
Print: New Scientist and the Economist, I always take a copy of each on holiday.  Nowadays that's when I can't take the Kindle, so about once per year
The present is a foreign country: they do things differently here.
