    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.
    I don't know of any that are trustworthy.

    a poster here suggested Economist, and I'm glad he did. So that and BBC

    Right-leaning but fair news sources:

    The American Conservative, The Economist, The BBC, Deutsche Welle, Foreign Affairs, Global Security.

    Left-leaning but fair news sources:

    The Intercept, The Guardian, Democracy Now, Christian Science Monitor, National Public Radio.

    News sites worth avoiding all together or viewing with great scepticism:

    CNN, FOX, MSNBC, Breitbart, Zerohedge, RT, Global Research, Reason.

    Cheers.

    my go to is a blank google news search. it gives you top stories from multiple angles. dilutes out the bias a little.

    Oh I don't know. I laugh at the stupidity of your posts frequently.

    Der Spiegel
    BBC
    Either WP/NYT's/WSJ (actually it is best if you pick one of these each day, change it up).
    The Week - Don't know it

    Politico - left

    Deutsche Welle - Used to be impartial, leans heavy left

    Der Spiegel - Used to be actual news reporting only, drifted to ueber-liberal after Merkel showed up, and is now mega progressive
    (I've read Der Spiegel for 40 years now; since Trump entered the presidential race, not a single positive article about Trump, although Der Spiegel used to write favourable articles about him before.)

    BBC - left

    WP/NYT - left

    WSJ - left/right (depending on who writes the particular article)

    Very useful in getting ones bearings on the truth I say, a great mix.
