The Times, got used to reading it so like the layout, it's pedigree means it has its finger on the pulse of events, and (to me at least) seems impartial enough that I can read it without grinding my teeth or feeling like I have to decipher the real events from the bull**** slants (though it's not entirely perfect in this regard).
The opinion pieces can be interesting and there's a lot in there. Like that there is a section dedicated to world news.
Plus it seems to be cheaper on campus.
For online news I just use the BBC News website.
The rest of my news comes from TV news broadcasts (Channel 4, Sky news, etc) when I can be bothered, and other internet sites that discuss current affairs (which is always handy for getting links to sources independently of the media).
