sources (news and information sources!)
    #467430 - 08/25/10 09:25 PM (6 years, 3 months ago)

I just realized that there aren't any sources that I trust anymore.  Maybe it's just because im watching Bullshit, which is a hilarious and interesting show, but they are bombarding me with all of these seemingly obscure organizations both with a slant on the issue that is in opposition to each other.  Are there any sources yall trust as being authentic without bias?

I really don't think any news source isn't bias.  I mean, you're always gonna find something in there that's biased.  I personally just try to pick through the biased bullshit and take the facts and put it together myself :shrug:

Edit-  I like watching Larry King.  I think he's pretty unbiased, on tv anyway.

I dont know man its hard to say. Like dude said above you kinda have to
go with ur gut and shift through the bullshit. But or the most part, to
answer your question. I would say no.

There is no such thing as an unbiased source.  But I think there is a stark difference between a news organization that tries to minimize such issues, and others that totally toss the entire concept under the bus

For me, I focus on news outlets that shy away from too much editorial content and personality driven news shows, like MSNBC and Fox. Some more mainstream personal favorites are Al-Jazeera, the News Hour, BBC, and NPR. A good compilation source for headlines is the Daily Beast

The greatest thing we know is that we know nothing.

Learn from everyone, follow no one.

i take the facts from the same story from multiple sources (internet, several tv sources, etc.)  A lot of news I think is bullshit anyway though.  I mean I don't think any of it is unbiased so you kinda gotta figure it out for yourself anyway I think.:shrug:

How do you get your news, your unbiased news that is :grin:

Best source you can find for US news is generally the BBC.

NPR is a close second but even they don't do a very good job of getting beyond the irrelevant party politics during election season.

Some of PRI's programs are great too but not necessarily current events based (This American Life, Living on Earth)
