I ignore a lot of news but when there's something I want/need to know about I have to go online and look for multiple sources, including independent sites, youtube commentators and forums. It's not easy TBH, and I'm sure some confirmation occurs since nothing seems non biased anymore. I've also seen popular youtubers get some basic facts wrong when discussing something I KNOW A LOT ABOUT (including STYX and Tim Poole) so I have to take everything with a grain of salt.

I have no tv and don't subscribe to newspapers. I'm happier for it overall.

Gerald Oneill a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter at the Boston Globe just passed away, He exposed corruption in the Boston area and uncovered the fact that Whitey Bulger was an FBI informant. Just one more example of the "enemy of the state.

Only media that has a left leaning bias is sn enemy of the state, conservative publications are a friend of democracy.

I enjoy the WSJ, they have carried many stories critical of Trump and his policies, does that make them leftists.

As instructed by your professors, you get your commentary from a source that promotes your agenda.
