You have to remember that some individuals seem to have the sole purpose of continually starting controversial threads to keep people tearing at each other. Almost like it was their job.

If we are talking about political news, I often see stories on Campus Reform, WaPo, NY Times, Fake News, and CNN. However, my main source of news is Anime News Network.

Not so much for clickbait, unless court- ordered to do so.

I will take WSJ, NYT and WaPO any day.

Our POTUS has, thus far, made more than 10,000 misstatements / falsehoods, since taking office. Its laughable to hear him refer to most media as fake.


Like anything else, I would expect someone who thinks Trump has lied or made 10k+ misstatements to be reading the NYT & WaPo as both are virulently anti-Trump. The WSJ is more moderate and even conservative from a financial/fiscal perspective, so of that I am pleasantly surprised you read it.

So to use the most recent example of bias, how does someone like yourself not scratch their head when the NYT's changes a headline (which was accurate & fair) because of objections from if leftist readers?

KTAR is fairly balanced. It might not be liberal but often people on the right complain about it...

NBC and ABC Nightly News are mostly fair, unless you are President Trump since a lot of what he says is hard to defend when you really look at it... I also watch the local NBC and ABC outlets too. Fox 10 is FAR too right.

I also watch some The Young Turks who are progressive but when it is about corportist Democrats, they are fair on giving them crap.

I also watch Phillip Defranco who sometimes has some politic talk on his weekly shows but tries to look as objective as possible at issues.

Finally, on certain stories, I'll watch CNN for SPECIFIC STORIES on their YouTube channel.

Maybe for third party stuff, I'll watch RT America on YouTube again as we get closer to election, but I'm not sure. I think since it is Russian owned (RT is Russia Today mind you) I'm half wondering if they want to siphon off Democrat votes to third parties to keep Trump in office...
