    Russia Times actually. But yeah, your point is...what exactly? Are we, as Americans, forbidden from watching news outlets based out of other countries?

    You are certainly free to watch. Just be aware they get orders.

    Re: News Outlets You Get Your News From

    I get my news online mostly. Fox News.com and CNN.com for both partisan sides. Sites like this are great to hear both sides as well, plus other stories you might not catch. I like the Daily Show, but I wouldn't say I get my news from it - usually they are already a day or two behind. Occasionally, they will provide commentary on a subject that I really enjoy.

    NPR is a great source, but I haven't listened to it for a few years. They present news in a reasonably non-partisan way, but those who don't like it would say they are partisan by the stories they do not talk about (which probably holds some weight). No news source can be completely impartial, but AP press releases and NPR are my two favorite to go to.

    RT America actually operates independent from the Russian government.

    Then why did several of their on air reporters resign because of story directions from Moscow during the Ukraine crisis?

What was left at the end was my list.
    Getting your news from headlines doesn't sound like being to informed.

    As for myself,

    Subscribed daily newspapers:

    Wall Street Journal; Orange County Register. After almost forty years I have canceled my subscription to the Los Angeles Times.

    Newspapers on the Web:

    San Diego Trib; any that the Drudge Report links to.

    Other daily web sources:

    Drudge Report; Google News; Yahoo News; American Patrol; Brietbart; Naval Institute News; Stratfor;

    Cable TV news sources:

    Fox News Channel; CNN; One of the major evening national news programs, CBS, NBC or ABC; 90 minutes of local news.

    Some times I actually go outside and take a look around at what's going on around me.

    The point is that any news source that would carry those kinds of headlines I listed weren't serious news sources.

    If we're thinking of the same incident, those were reporters working for Russian news media...in Russia.

    Have you noticed how the Drudge Report rewrites the headlines ? Drudge is good.

    Headlines have to purposes, to inform one what the topic is about and to gain attention of the reader so he reads the story. Drudge goes for the later.

    Yeah, that's called click bait. The idea is to get you to click on a headline that's as "grabby" as possible. When you click on it the news site gets money from the ad shown in the banner.
