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.


I'm listening to Alex right now...although I do think that he promos to many products during his show, but hey I get the podcast for free.

I like sites like Breitbart or the Blaze or just the local New Zealand news.

I use BBC News and Hackernews mainly (and occasionally The Guardian and Slashdot). I've actually been looking into alternative [UK-based] news sources. That isn't to say that BBC News does't "cut it" but I'm interested in what other, less popular sites have to offer. I read BBC News simply because it is popular and accessible. Recommendations are most welcome.

Well you can't get Micheal Savage or Alex Jones over there, so their out. What about things related David Icke?

BBC because usually most American news outlets are too biased and dishonest. It's not like I'm anti-American though, but I find American news from non-American sites to be a bit more honest. Also, BBC doesn't have a comment section, which is a huge distraction for a me and a huge source of trolling and dumb ignorance.

It depends on the news I'm looking up. Local news? I check local newspaper website, MDReporter, and local blogs. National/international news? I check national blogs and FoxNews.com/CNN.com. Despite what others may feel about their 24 hr TV network, the FoxNews website is pretty good at keeping up with the news. Also, I'm conservative so I don't care if my news is coming at me from a conservative angle.

For news about church goings on? Christian Post and Baptist Press.

Not really sure how this turns into extended discussion unless we all start arguing about our prefered news sources, which I don't plan to do

I figured American news would be less adulterated by an outside news source. *shrugs*
