    List your Non-Biased News Sources

    I find it very difficult to find anything that is accepted as "non-biased" by the people on TWeb.

    First of all, mocking a source as "biased" because you don't like the FACTS they show -- even if they included a video of somebody personally saying something, is just batpoop nutty.
    Either the person SAID it, or they didn't, regardless of the source reporting it.

    So, just curious if it's possible to list a couple sources that both liberals and conservatives or democrats and republicans, or whoever, thought were "non-biased".

    Every source I regularly read is biased toward truth and facts.

    I think a starting point could be: what are the news sources for which their news reporting generally agree with the Fox News *news* (not opinion) reporting. Also filter out sources which are news aggregators + opinion.

    I would imagine that the traditional mainstream news sources would be covered by that standard.

    Like breitbart ?

    He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."

    Interesting that you only identify conservative sources. Are you think there are no liberal sources that could be problematic?

    Also filter out sources which are news aggregators + opinion.
    I would think sources that clearly identify themselves as entertainment, or opinion, or commentary should not be considered "news sources", biased or not.

    I would imagine that the traditional mainstream news sources would be covered by that standard.
    OK, so propose one or two, or a few.

    Funny thing about Breitbart, nobody has ever pointed out a single factual error in any of the stories that I've referenced in these forums. carpe came up with the novel theory that while Breitbart does report the facts, it's really just a clever ruse so their critics can't accuse them of not reporting the facts. How devious!

    I was suggesting Fox News "news" as generally unbiased, not as a biased source. At least that's my understanding and been the case in my (limited) personal experience.

    I don't know many biased left wing sites because I don't waste my time on them. I know ShareBlue is one I used to read a few years ago until I learned they weren't reliable. DailyKos is also too biased for me to take seriously but I only see their headlines in my email and very rarely click anything.

    I can list sources which I think are generally reliable in their news reporting (e.g. WaPo). Hopefully posters in this thread can accept that not every news organization gets it right 100% of the time.
