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.


BBC news generally to get a sense of what's going on.

Arrse (Army Rumour Service) for the views and links supplied by regular and ex-forces.

My links on Facebook lead to The Times and The Guardian feeding into me, so I look into thier articles. I buy the Guardian once in a blue moon.

I try to make an effort to see the Chanel 4 news, particuraly Robert Peston, as his political analysis is usually insightful and original.

This forum is quite good to get a different take on whatever comes up.
