John Carney of CNBC.com writes about the best alternative financial news blogs — those that aren’t affiliated with a major media organization.

About Dealbreaker.com, Carney writes, “We still can’t let a day go by without checking on the new ways Bess Levin has discovered to hurl hilarious bile at the news. She’s what Jon Stewart would be if Jon Stewart were a dirty-talking Wall Street tabloid reporter. Plus, she’s got the best hedge-fund sources in the business.”

As for BusinessInsider.com, he writes, “It has grown a lot since the days when it was just a finance and technology site. Still central to Business Insider’s success is the tireless warp-speed blogging of Joe Weisenthal.”

And another favorite is Credit Writedowns. Carney writes, “Edward Harrison’s ‘Credit Writedowns’ boasts one of the best stables of columnists around. Harrison’s unconventional approach to economics — one part Austrian, one part Modern Monetary Theory, and four parts original Harrisonism — makes it a real standout. I won’t bother trying to explain it all right here.”
