Best Local Website
MinnPost is the antidote for those who believe the internet has wrestled their IQ to depths beyond repair. This is a site for the high-minded and civically engaged, people who want to read about the big issues affecting Minnesota. It skips the low-hanging fruit of the daily news cycle to analyze the greater significance of politics, development, health care, the environment and the like. Think of it as the Twin Cities' version of the PBS NewsHour — a meal heavy on the meat, but without a lot of sizzle. Throw in Britt Robson's superior sports reporting, Brian Lambert's morning roundup, and perhaps the most enlightened, goober-free comment section in town, and you have all the makings of a balanced, nutritious breakfast.
