Rolling Stone magazine is considered to be one of the premier magazines when it comes to music, and it does so by interviewing famous musicians and having an alternative look at the current scene. It's writers try to be off the cuff, and sometimes they fail, but they at least try.
What brings me to be interested in this magazine is not the music, but the news. If you can actually refer to these people as reporters, they go places normal network reporters are not allowed and do interviews that most politicians wish they could get. They are willing to go to the ends of the earth, interview anyone from reporterd terrorists or even infiltrate local gangs to find out the important information.
During election cycles, I make sure to take the time to read the informative articles about each candidate so that I can feel well-informed when I go to make my decision.
