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?

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.

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.

A few months ago, I asked if anyone had a neutral American news source and got no bites.

Personally, I use Euronews as it feels neutral and professional and I'm based in Europe. I used to like the BBC but they have become unreliable lately. I havent found any US source that satisfies me. Due to my email, I tend to see yahoo news. But whenever I click on the headline, it rarely matches the actual story.
