    A request has been made for a list of "preferred news sites" to link to when posting news articles for discussion.

    Do note that this isn't a politically-preferred list, but rather a list of sites that do not seem to have decaying links. Many news sites only post their stories online for a month or two, and then the story disappears or becomes subscriber-only, hence these types of sites are not preferred).

    Here are some that seem to work well:

    BBC News
    CBC
    Sciencedaily
    University press releases (generally)
    Government press releases (e.g., Environment Canada or USDA news)
    National Geographic News
    Time.com
    NYTimes.com (is often ok -- but not always, I wish they'd be consistent)

    Please feel free to add sites that maintain their news archives freely available for many years!
