Best source(s) for local news?

Where do you go to get local news? Who do you typically trust to give you the straight scoop – or at least to give you enough information to help you piece it together yourself without too much hype or innuendo? More importantly – who (or what) do you steer clear of?

Be as specific or generic as you’d like, please.

As for me, well – I’m a voracious consumer of all things media (as you’ve probably guessed already) and will wade through almost anything, including several local blogs and/or RSS feeds. (I may bitch about The O, for example – but it’s still a must-read for me, as I’ve discussed before.) The one source I tend to steer clear of? Local television news, for the most part.

    I’m a student at the University of Portland, from Northwest Washington, and never quite figured out Portland’s best news source. I enjoyed the Wilamette Weekly, but was never really impressed with the O.
