I listen to NPR.
I have a widget on my phone that scrolls headlines from my chosen feeds that I glance at throughout the day. Also, Twitter, as long as you watch your sources.
I work at a news station
I listen to NPR on my drive to work every morning.
What is this thing you call...."news"???

That's pretty awesome!
Todays news? Oh... you mean what was on Reddit yesterday? If you mean by that... then yes. On my computer.
NPR, in the car
in the morning I listen to NPR on my commute and then watch the 10:00 news at night.
I podcast The Young Turks while I work
All day, talk radio, internet, Fox, and CNN. The more up to date I am on the geopolitical situation, the better.
I listen to NPR in the car, but it's a five-minute drive, so I get most of it when I read the paper in the evening after work, when it is delivered.
I get a lot of news through Twitter, but for local news it's all physical print.
I do the AM/PM NPR Morning Edition/All Things Considered commute. But I also skim a physical paper newspaper every day.
Closed Caption TV, Pandora (for mood), my.yahoo news feeds simultaneously.
I don't work, TV all day FNC...
I'm the host of a morning radio show in the greater Tampa area. I get most of my news on reddit.
NPR in morning, NBC natl @ 1730hrs, Jon Stewart @ 2200hrs for fun.
Yes. NPR while driving. Easiest way to get current events injected into my brain.
Well, I must be the geezer in the group. I read the tree-killing WSJ in the morning.
NPR while commuting to/from work.
This answer is much more common than I expected it to be.
Radio works for me

On the Daily Show. Duh.
Local radio early morning (6AM). Drudge Report and local radio news updates every hour during the day. Finish with the local late evening (11PM) news.
I have msnbc as my homepage on Mozilla and Fox News as my homepage on explorer. I open both when I get to work and then end up laughing about how they write about the same news events but almost nothing in their articles match.
CNN and BBC and FOX and NBC and CBS and 5 Eyewitness News and NPR and MSNBC and ESPN and Paul Allen and K102 and, wait... I just realized that the question was about reading. Damn, I was gonna look up more news stations.
I get my news exclusively from Drudgereport.com. It is by far the best News site on the internet. Everything you need to read is right there on the front page.
5 minutes of radio on the drive into work. It's pretty much all the same information regardless of where you find it.
my old android phone with regular earbuds switched seamlessly to taking a call from listening without a inline mic. it just uses the mic in the phone and outputs the call to the headphones
NPR, different news websites though out the day, Daily Show, Colbert Report.
Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert fill me in on whats going on out there in the world.
I let "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" give me the highlights from the previous week.
Additionally, I listen to BBC World during my commute.
The Daily Show (internet version) + weekly issues of The Economist.
