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.

In the UK, pretty much all the television news are interchangeable. They are all anti-Brexit, anti-Trump, progressives. They usually run the same stories with the same bias.
If I watch them, it's only as background noise as I play Tetris!

Most of my news comes from several dozen Youtube channels.
The news from around the world looks much different when it's not filtered through a progressive lens.
