Is GLP the best source for breaking news?
I used to use Google news to keep updated on breaking news. From recent experience, I have to say that even though you have to filter some of the posts, GLP users get the breaking news out there. So, thanks GLPers!

its the ONLY reason im here is now and then someone reports "from the scene" where something real is happening and then I can get on a online scanner feed of the area. Perfect example was the refinery fire, and earthquake last night.

GLP gets news on the front page 2 days ahead of DIGG! That says a lot. :)

Absolutely, as long as you don't mind digging through a bunch of BS to get it. GLP is, on average, about 30 minutes to an hour ahead of everyone else with news. Sometimes much, much longer than that! I'm trying to remember what it was now, but there was a pinned thread a few weeks back that was like 3 days ahead of the rest of the MSM.

News-posting is amazingly fast here. Ordinary news sites are utterly lethargic in comparison.
And there's always lots of commentary and out of the box thinking at GLP.

I'll have to agree with the "out of the box" comment. That's not always a bad thing though.

Re: Is GLP the best source for breaking news?
It depends on your definition of breaking.

GLP is usually quick to get news but not that quick if you look at the src sites supplied, when you read the referred site it refers to other sites usually (indeicating 3rd hand news).

I have a whole news system at my hands called "iNews" at work and when on the VPN :)

i see loads of rubbish.
