I thought that making this thread would be timely considering CNN just lost even more of what little credibility and dignity they had left. After this incident, I'd like to believe that people are starting to look for new outlets to get their news and information from. That's what I'm hoping this thread will be used for. To provide people better resources for information if they are currently in the dark and looking for sources that aren't dogshit.

So, where do you folks typically get your news from and/or what do consider to be reliable sources of news?

Depends on where the news happens, or what sort of news it is. For international stuff, Reuters, usually. They are pretty good about not actually publishing stuff that isn't yet confirmed. If it's something that happened in the states, your best bet is often to go with the site of the local stations/papers where a thing is actually happening.

For American politics, though, everything is pretty much garbage now.

I start by learning what the day's big issues are by the usual sources - cable news, facebook, etc. Then I go almost anywhere else to actually learn about it.

I read a lot of websites. There are some I think are trustworthy - slate, Washington Post, new york times, so on. I read as many as I can find because i won't trust just one. And yes, I find out a lot here, too.

Mostly CBC and the local newspaper. Also Facebook, though I don't seek out news there, per say, it just happens to be easily available or being discussed by friends when I log on for other reasons. And also here, as has been mentioned by many. I try to get news from as many sources as I can, and I like to read about the same issues from opposing perspectives - though sometimes I get burnt out from all the endless bad news and just avoid news altogether for a week or two.

I usually just go to local news sources to learn my stuff.
If that's not possible, I read from every possible source from both sides of the political isle. If I get an article from a left wing site, I either go to the most centrist site possible or find a right leaning site.

Obviously I'm not gonna go from OccupyDemocrats to The Blaze or Alex Jones, I keep my sources within the realm of plausibility.

I generally check local news and facebook to stay in the loop. For reliability, basically this chart:

I tend to disregard sources I never heard of.

You have three guesses as to who made it, and the first two don't count.

This is such bullshit dude. No mention of Fox and Friends, the most patriotic, truthful, and free news network in the US?

Not even worth of a golf clap. 0/10.

the news subforum here mostly because it's where I can see a discussion of the news being talked about in the thread.

Greg Gutfeld on Saturday because Kat Timpf and Tyrus.

Fox On 9 pm EST because Kimberly Guilfoye, and the Jesse Watters shits on Juan Williams.


Actual news? If you are not a total tard you can find most of the truth by looking and analyzing.
