My most frequent sources for cribbed links:
(This mostly doesn't include the content-publishers themselves, only eclectic sources of links. For the former, try my portal.)
Brilliant multipage headline aggregator, run as a Perl program.
Tech headlines aggregated by hand with help from bots. Extremely slow-loading table.
[OSRR] Obscure Store: http://www.obscurestore.com/
A daily burst of well-chosen gossip links.
The Linux community's interactive weblog. Rather slow-loading.
[SN] Scripting News: http://www.scripting.com/
Dave Winer's tech newspage, hi-energy but culturally out-of-touch. His disdain for his readers is expressed by frequent links with no descriptive text, and by frequently, arbitrarily rearranging the day's links.
[CDreams] Common Dreams: http://www.commondreams.org/
A great daily news portal for progressives.
[HG] Honeyguide Web Log: http://www.chaparraltree.com/honeyguide/
A beautiful weblog, mostly science but also widely literate.
[AAN] Association of Alternative Newsweeklies: http://aan.org/
The best of the alternative press. Unfortunately only headlines as anchor text, no descriptions.
[Drudge] The Drudge Report: http://www.drudgereport.com/
I was a charter subscriber to this back when it was email only. A lot of his rumors don't pan out, but when he's right he's usually got a 24-hour lead on everybody else.
[Whump] Bill Humphries' More LIke This: http://www.whump.com/news.html
[NTK] Need To Know: http://www.ntk.net/
A way-hip weekly newsletter of links written in a funny, cryptic style, heavily UK-oriented.
[NASA Watch] http://www.reston.com/nasa/watch.html
Very well-connected space gossip and muckraking.
A dozen links a week, aimed mostly at infrequent surfers. Horrible slow-loading site design.
Archeology news links. The only way I know to get this is in sci.archeology.moderated.
[AIC] Ain't It Cool: http://www.aint-it-cool-news.com/news/index.html
Pre-release movie gossip. Slow-loading, loud.
[HtB] Hacking the Buddha/ Manifest Station: http://www.manifestation.com/
Thoughts and links from a young devotee of neuro-linguistic programming.
Laurel Krahn's warmly personal weblog
[SB] Steve Bogart's Now This: http://nowthis.com/log/
More good stuff.
Jakob Nielsen's three links a week, mainly about human factors and web design.
Almost daily progressive news items. Nice keywords. Humorless.
[OS] OS News: http://www.osnews.com/news/index.html
Operating-system related news links.
[OLB] Online Books Page: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/booknew.html
Several dozen new online-book links per week. A huge page.
[McOS] MacOS Rumors: http://www.macosrumors.com/
Mac-OS related gossip and links.
Well-done log of news about search-engines and other net.research resources.
[CG] Chris Gulker: http://ww2.gulker.com/news/
Occasional links, plus a good list of other 'news pages'.
[anw] artnetweb: http://artnetweb.com/newsletter/index.html
Infrequent newsletter of avant-garde web projects.
[YMMV] Your Mileage May Vary: http://www.ymmv.com/daily.html
Late, lamented log of tech news.
[ALD] Arts and Letters Daily: BOYCOTT THIS PLAGIARIST
Three poncy humanities-links a day.
[Feed] Feed: http://www.feedmag.com/lofi.html
I used to love this, but something about their redesign has put me off. Daily links and culture criticism.
[AW] Andy Williams: http://www.raggedcastle.com/andyjw/news/
[McR] MacRonin: http://www.macronin.com/news.html
[P&F;] Pigs and Fishes: http://www.users.interport.net/~avram/links/weblog/index.html
[DP] Digital Prairie: http://www.circumtech.com/prairienews/
[McNN] MacNetwork News: http://www.macnn.com/
[McRs] MacResource: http://www.macresource.pair.com/mrp/main.shtml

If you have such a page, or know of others, let me know.
A wild group, with a culture all its own.
Almost as wild, but features Pusssykat's convenient daily reposting of all the gossip pages around the Web.
Inexplicable community of very smart, very funny net.veterans.
No discussion, only press-release-style progressive-activist stuff.
Old-timers' computer nostalgia, often very well-informed.
Search-engine gossip and theory.
A solid community of mostly-software designers and critics.
