Constructive Distraction: The Daily Beast

Procrastination doesn't have to be a total waste of time. This monthly post highlights websites to make your time avoiding research papers and textbooks productive. 

Because election day is less than a week away, it's only appropriate we feature a news source as November's Constructive Distraction. Drum roll please; we present to you: The Daily Beast.

This popular daily news site was founded in 2008, and then merged with Newsweek in early 2011. The Daily Beast features news stories from its writers as well as Newsweek's writers. Its current events and election coverage has been phenomenal. It was my first stop after each debate for the candidate fact check.

The best feature on TDB is the Cheat Sheet. It's smack-dab in the middle of the homepage, highlighting prominent stories and news you should read to keep up with current events. You can always have the Cheat Sheet emailed to you for more convenience. I do the latter, catching up with my world and national news while catching up on my industry news.

What are your top news sites? Let us know! We're always looking for engaging, well-written content.

Until next month...
