    I know ideally people are supposed to consult a range of sources for accurate news. But most of us do not have the time or desire to really check more than a couple. And so many sources are heavily biased nowadays.

    So, what are your primary news sources and why? Which ones do you despise?



    Quote:
    For me, it is Reuters followed by BBC. They tend to be the leaset biased in both headlines, stories, and wording of said stories. They usually stick to the facts. Sometimes I will check Fox News, Yahoo or CNN because they sometimes carry stories others do not or get different point of views.



    Quote:
    As to ones I do not trust or despise it is pretty much all American ones. Whether it be conservative or liberal both have proven to be so biased I do not trust them.


Very similar to me.

I peruse through Yahoo for other reasons like fantasy football and so I will look at their news too.

I see CNN a lot more than Fox...but consider them both trash.
BBC is fairly good...though not as good as it used to be.
Various internet sources...I truly don't know where to look for a moderate or unsensationalized place for news. So I usually look at both left and right news and just see where they agree or cite a solid source. Local news isn't too terrible though issues are of course more locally focused.
