Kiplinger for general financial information, although most of us should ignore the specific stock and mutual fund recommendations.

Assetbuilder (Scott Burns) has good low-cost portfolios as well as retirement saving and spending advice.

But I agree with several other replies that this site is best for when you are looking for specific advice about a specific situation. Folks here generally give pretty sound advice and you can also get several different perspectives to consider.

I avoid commercial sites since they are inevitably biased. If I do happen to read a story on -say- Yahoo Finance, I get more insight (and entertainment) from the comments than the story itself. User-contributed content on forums like this one and Bogleheads will provide a variety of viewpoints from people with direct, hands-on experience. Read, interact, and make up your own mind. That's more valuable to me than spoon-fed advice from a site with an agenda... which is usually to sell me something I don't need.

I like the Vanguard site. Tried fumbling on my own. The advise is plain Vanilla. But it worked for me.

+1, same in that exact order

Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.
