Almost everyone has a different source that they like, such as AP, Reuters, BBC, FOX, CNN, and etc.

but what is your reason for choosing it or them? Although every source is biased in some way, how biased do you think your sources really are?

I personally like InfoWars.. for good reasons.

The Onion lol

It's super biased and not real, but it's entertaining and satirical.

I use CNN to get the jist of something going on and other news sources for what actually happened. I avoid Al Jazeera all the way because it's pure propaganda.

The Guardian, Time.com, BBC, The Telegraph. I find those excellent sources, with top-notch journalism.
Despite being a lefty myself, I try and avoid websites like HuffPo, because it's generally pretty poor in terms of reportage. They've also published terrible, pseudo-scientific drivel on occasion.

Obviously, I only go to Faux News if I'm looking for a laugh. The fact that anyone takes Fox seriously, when it's the most transparently moronic trolling on the internet, would be hilarious, if it weren't so alarming.

As for Infowars, I've had the occasional look at it, but it's clearly just the mad ramblings of public nuisance Alex Jones, and his equally crackpot conspiracy theorist idiot crew. Sorry, but it's true.

i try to look into as many news sources that i can ... no one source is without its flaws ... transparency in a news source is not easy to come by ... often times it takes many view points to get to the reality of a situation.

For the longest while I really only trusted CNN and BBC but I eventually branched out to NPR and more recently Al Jazeera and RT for a different perspective. Even though they have a certain anti-American zest to them I've noticed that the latter two make CNN and BBC look like tabloids by comparison.

I'm a fan of NightWatch because it takes into account all the different views of news articles from all over the world. Some graybeard from the intelligence community writes it.

Daily mail, just for the rage filled little Englander comments and leading titles

But then it's usually the Irish times or independent.

Yes, the Daily Fail is ideal when you want to RAGE. The kinds of people who take the Mail seriously are one of the biggest reasons that I absolutely don't miss living in the UK!

You know, part of me is happy that CNN is in a bit of a bind when it comes to ratings. They are all falling, but CNN doesn't have far to fall before it bottoms out. Their reporting has really suffered and the viewing experience is just awful. When they aired Wolf Blitzer's (is there a cooler name in existence?) interview with President Barack Obama there were actually more commercials than coverage in the hour long broadcast. They are in desperation mode and it shows. I also heard reports that they show human corpses on air for absurd lengths of time in a attempt to be edgy.

I think that type of coverage is best left to tabloids.

I like this question: The Christian Science Monitor, BBC, Al Jazeera, NPR (of course most of their news is BBC), Economist, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Wall street Journal... really depends on the news actually.
