If you want closer to unbiased, always go overseas for part of your news. Then you don't get party bias creeping in and get a view that isn't looking to sugar coat things to protect ratings, or nationalist feelings. This works for all countries.

This is a question we ask all the time. My husband started his career out of college as a reporter. He was proud of the press, regardless of whether it was print or another type. Now, retired he said he would be embarrassed to admit he is a journalist if he were still working.

and for anyone who says, for unbiased news pay attention to overseas news? Sure like BBC? Nope, all news today has a biased slant, it might just be a slant you agree with. Or it might be a country where speaking you mind and giving your opinion isn't allowed. Yes, our coverage is slanted, but at least we still have freedom of speech here, even if it is overdone in my opinion.

The US isn't an enclave of freedom of speech. Many nations have that as a right, many had it before the US existed. Anyway, with an overseas perspective you get a view that may or may not challenge your own. That's a good thing. Seeing your country through the eyes of others who may be on the wrong side of a horrid policy, that might seem reasonable at home, is a positive.
