Just curious.

Myself, I look at the world news feed on reddit to see what's trending. I then head over to Drudge to see what he has up on his feed. I'll click over to the Daily Yomiuri to see what's happening around me. If it's a slow news day I'll head over to Al Jazeera. That's it.

Where do you get your news and why?

My choices are to get three or four different perspectives.

All of those sites are to the right of CNN and MSNBC

I lost interest in CNN about 15 years ago. It's never been a good source of news.

I like balance. When I listened to Rachel M. I also listened to Fox. Now I mostly read the news, so I hit different sides by what's popular.

You're not going to answer the question yourself?

Yes, Frederick, please respond.  The highly regarded contributors of YouTube deserve the credit.

By "news" I assume you meant what news outlets do I look at.  For example, CNN reports almost no news, but I can't resist taking a peek at what fake news bullshit they are reporting.  When surfing the internet, one is bombarded with all sorts of "news" via MSN, Yahoo, etc.  I also take peeks at CNN, Fox, very little MSNBC,  and a load of assorted links I find when surfing the web.  I'm smart enough to discern reality from the "news" that is spoon fed to people.   It used to be that one could take the news reports as being credible, real, true, and accurate.  Those days are LONG gone.

I am all about the preservation and promotion of credible news outlets -- those that employ time-tested, verifiable fact-checking and reporting methods.

The following Forbes article highlights some of these media:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/berlinschoolofcreativeleadership/2017/02/01/10-journalism-brands-where-you-will-find-real-facts-rather-than-alternative-facts/#21609a24e9b5

So, I would point to The Economist, BBC, The New York Times, National Public Radio (NPR), and TIME, to start.

There's the National Review (for my conservative fix), The New Republic (as antidote), and wire services like Reuters, The Associated Press and Bloomberg.

And Vogue.  But not YouTube.

YouTubers, even the SJW crackheads, are probably more honest than anything on CNN

Ah, The Economist. I used to read it weekly but now it's when I have the time -- it's hands down my favorite magazine ever. I also used to read the National Review but it's hard to make the time to read the long-form articles these days.

I would read the Wall Street Journal if I could but I can't without a subscription and at this point in my life, I'd chose the Japanese version, The Nikkei.

I've never been into the fashion mags. I do like the occasional fix of pop culture in Interview, though. There's a hilarious interview between Erica Bhadu (sp?) and Ezra Miller this month. She somehow manages to take every comment he makes off in some mystical direction and he's clearly trying to stay on topic. It's great.

I can't dismiss YouTube altogether. There are a lot of alternate views out there that are worth hearing. Diamond and Silk comes to mind as does Beyond The Trailer's Movie Money weekly series.

BBC is fine, but NPR?  They have been the fuel for left wing psychos for decades.

NPR? Left-wing? I listen to some of their podcasts and have never had that impression. Oh, bloody hell, I think you're right. I'm thinking PBS. PBS is solid, imo.

I do like To The Best Of Our Knowledge and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, though. They're on NPR.

To be fair, NPR isn't THAT bad.. but NPR is the news service that ultra left AM radio stations use for their news segments.  That is why I said it's the "fuel".

The BBC is pretty SJW.   Name any SJW talking point and they report it as fact.    They de-muslim stories whenever they can.

I very rarely watch the BBC.. but they seem to be fair with Trump.

I'm sure they give muslims a free pass since muslims are so powerful in England.  Even the mayor of London is muslim.. and hates Trump.
