It’s true, we did. DC Decoder is the Christian Science Monitor's new politics-focused Tumblr, and they gave us a little/lot of help last night during the Iowa debate. Thanks guys! You rock!

On newsy stuff we like reading that has nothing to do with Tumblr

jeffmiller asks: What are your favorite (non-Tumblr) websites for news. (Or rather, what news websites do you read on a daily basis?)

» We say: Outside of our staple news sites (Reuters, CNN, the NYT and such), my personal favorite site is Mediaite, which I think strikes the perfect balance between news and commentary, and I can guarantee to generally have its finger on the pulse. (The aftertaste is also a little better than Politico, generally.) I also like a lot of The Atlantic’s stable, including The Atlantic Wire, which is a bit of an unsung hero among news commentary sites. I also greatly adore Hacker News, where you can usually find something generally awesome going on, be it a cool startup or interesting technical debate, and have been a faithful reader of Pitchfork, Slashdot and Fark since the late ’90s. Gawker Media’s stuff is staple food for me, and I’ve been a huge fan of Dave Weigel especially since he moved over to Slate. As for news outlets that never get their fair shake, the Christian Science Monitor always has stuff well-suited to SFB articles. And there’s a lot to like about The Awl. (It’s our Office Hours! Ask us stuff!)

Here’s a picture of someone tearing up Ivory Coast’s election results
To our friends who are members of the Independent Electoral Commission of the Ivory Coast: If you’re going to tear up a paper with the official results on it immediately before the planned announcement, be sure a reporter from the Christian Science Monitor (below, right) isn’t watching you do it, and a photographer from the Associated Press (behind the camera) isn’t taking a photo of you doing it. Because it might look like you’re trying to rig an election for a certain candidate. As bad as this incident was on Tuesday, it’s only gotten worse from here. source
