With so much news breaking by the minute, and the 24/7 news cycle, it can be hard to stay up to date with what’s going on in your own state, let alone in the world. I know I struggle with that, but putting together the morning brief for my office has helped me discover what news sites are best for breaking news and discover some news briefings that arrive via email every day and help me break down what I need to know. If you don’t mind spending a little time on sign-ups, throw down your email and start receiving these news briefings to help you stay on top of politics, even if you don’t work in the field.
