    The BBC was independent, though tending to be the voice of the establishment, rather than the government in power. More recently it's been cowed by the Tories. In the last few years, most of it's political reporters are Conservatives, the last political editor left to be Theresa May's spokesperson. They've been outspokenly anti-Corbyn too.
    I find Channel 4 News the most even-handed of the UK TV broadcasters. The Independent newspaper tends R of centre, but don't actively propagandise like some.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Republican's and conservatives, please do the same.

    If your an independent or libertarian, are there any trust worthy media outlets at all? If so name them.
    In political diagrams I am always almost at center and somewhat libertarian.
    If you compare info from a number of news sources, you can usually get close to the probable reality of a matter. On a stand alone basis there are platforms like The Economist, Bloomberg or bbc that are pretty reliable outside of small areas of bias. But is important to have an understanding of the fundamental way of thinking and expression to be able to pick up on the ideological shift.

    I have felt that bbc was not very conservative nor anything other than friendly about Corbyn. It might be that speaking the truth sounds nasty.

    I'm just trying to establish that, if the left feel they cannot trust the right and vise versa, we will never find a common ground.

    That's also why I sit where I do, they are both untrustworthy.

    I like the centrist views of Sean Hannity and Rachael Madow.

    IMO, the more credible media outlets from both sides of the aisle make a point of at least occasionally publishing a POV from the opposite side. In those instances (an article totally inconsistent with the publication's usual bias), I sometimes, out of curiosity, take time to research the reporter/author of the article.

    And that is precisely why I didn't like the media outlets you mentioned.

    I call it throwing the other side a bone to appear neutral.

    And yet I do, so you have missed something.
