Are they any news outlets left in America that you trust or do you have to get your news from certain foreign news sources to find out what’s really happening in America.

Credible media corrects when they get it wrong.

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.

Democracy Now, NPR, NYTimes, SFChronicle, CNN, and CBC.

News pieces can be cross verified with other outlets. Don’t trust social media, blogs, talk radio and definitely not opinion shows masquerading as news.

Those are all so liberal, and you're getting slanted news. OP asked about objective reporting.

I like WSJ.

There's always Breitbart and then Drudge. Although I see a pattern where its possible Drudge has sold out. But either are still better than any cable news outlets. And then there is always social media and independent news sources. They can do some real digging and will tell you what the MSM won't. Then there's talk radio. Listen to what others are saying and make up your own mind.

LOL! The most biased, Far Left, untruthful publication in the U.S. "works" for you? Wow.

The Editor recently admitted that the Russia hoax didn't work, and caught them flat footed, so they are switching to "Trump is Racist" as their new strategy leading up to the election. That works for you?

I don't watch cable news, nor do I read mainstream newspaper websites, nor AP, as they are all left wing biased. There are very, very few sources out there for just factual news with no spin.

Either BBC or if I see a C-D thread about a news story that interests me, I will try to find more about it by Googling it. However, I confess that I also distrust ALL the major U.S. news outlets now, so I read those (can't tolerate watching them any longer) just for facts and not their biased opinions about the event.

Oh, and I also will sometimes catch a local news station at work, and sometimes I will follow it up by watching more local news online once I'm home if there is something local I want to know more about (such as the fairly recent Highlands Ranch STEM school shooting or a threatening blizzard, for example).
