balanced news sources for a South Australian
December 14, 2016 2:57 AM   Subscribe

Following on from my concerns here, what daily/weekly/monthly print or radio news sources would you recommend for a South Australian in metropolitan Adelaide who flicks through The Advertiser six days a week and is concerned that he is getting only that newspaper's slant on things?

I don't have a TV, and already spend too much time online at work, so I'm wondering about print or radio journalism.

It needs to be through a South Australian lens, primarily covering local and national news, with a particular focus on political news, but also with a reasonable amount of international news and general local cultural news. Minimal tabloid content.

If it's radio, I don't want to be tuning in throughout the day; I would prefer to schedule just a half-hour program a day, or a one hour program once a week. It would have to be an evening broadcast (after 7pm) or broadast on the weekend. I have access to local FM and digital radio.

Missing the SA lens, The Saturday Paper might otherwise satisfy your needs for national, political & international news.

Not entirely serious but on instagram @shitadelaide have surprisingly informative local news and politics coverage as well as their usual pisstakes. They have a Facebook page too if you're not on insta. Definitely an antidote to the Tiser.
