What news aggregator do you use?

I have tried to get on the RSS bandwagon. Really I did. But it's just too much drama for me. I read The Morning News (www.tmn.org) everyday, and love that someone I trust chooses stories for me -- it's edited, focused, smart, and clean. Does anyone have other aggregators (or curators?) that are similar? (I'm trying Atlantic Wire with limited joy.)

I love the Drudge Report. And I especially love the constant tweaking of Weiner?

I love that he includes a constant supply of the real with the inane and the ridiculous.

Go ahead and kill me.

Response by poster: Drudge is largely the kind of place I am trying to avoid. Any other thoughts?

The new digg.com is good.

Your link, tmn.org, goes to a spammy landing page.

Maybe Arts & Letters Daily?

Evening Edition gives you five stories every evening and comes in three flavors: French, British, and US.

Maybe Byliner or Longform?

Response by poster: a.mosquito - thanks.

I corrected the link: http://www.themorningnews.org/

Response by poster: digg.org -- good as a magazine. I'm hoping for more daily news.

Arts and letters -- their long form is good, if a bit overwhelming in numbers. same with byliner.

longform -- more manageable than arts and letters, but still long form.

evening edition -- we may be onto something here...

I hear you. I totally miss Slate's daily paper. The closest thing I have found is The Weekly Sift but it is just on Mondays and far more opinionated. I also like Mathowie's recommended email news source - The NextDraft.

Oh, and also, I get the RSS feed for Foreign Policy's Morning Brief and I'm pretty sure they have a (week) daily email for that, though I get it through RSS. It gives you the top story of the day plus three stories in each of several different international regions, with links so you can explore further.

It may not be precisely what you're looking for because it's more like an aggregator of aggregators and requires some setup, but I use Pulse more or less exclusively for reading the news.

NextDraft by Dave Pell is an iOS app that is well curated. It started as an email newsletter, so you can use that if you don't use iOS.
