Finding News

I don’t know where most of you get your news, but for me it’s a combination of BBC World, NY Times, Democracy Now, Huff Post (for fun), and around 6 different blogs/indy media. Recently I added a few news sites from countries I’m particularly interested (i.e Kenya, Thailand, etc. ). The Standard, a newspaper out of Nairobi just ran an article about overpaid MP’s, which sent me looking for more intel, where I found this video. The long of the short of it is that some of the highest paid MP’s in the world wanted to get paid more money. A bit shocking. They didn’t get it, but just another reason for citizens to get angry  in the midst of  Kenya’s draft constitution mayhem.
