News.

Where is a good source for accurate unbiased news? I am looking for a location on the web to start going to when I want to get caught up on the goings on.

Sites that I do not trust are as follows:
www.cnn.com
www.foxnews.com
www.ap.org
www.reuters.com
www.msnbc.com
www.bbc.co.uk (only because they aren't in this country)
english.aljazeera.net
www.cbsnews.com
abcnews.go.com


So where does that lead me?

there is no such thing

every human being is biased. unless you find a news organization run by a fucking alien android, you're always going to be subjected to someone else's preference, however slight

Kidding. It's highly biased

Reuters does decent stuff sometimes.

Drudge report is very right wing biased, but I go to it because he is always the first to break news. His headlines are kind of like some Pit debates in here, he will put the headline "Obama finally admits his lies and healthcare fails" and then the article will be nothing remotely like that. Maybe I shouldn't recommend drudge.

I know bbc.co.uk is on your list, but they give a good global opinion of what is going on.

Welp....see ya later

The nice thing about NPR is that whenever they have a conservative on a show, they actually give them a fair shake, no mockery or distortion. They had Lindsay Graham on awhile back, and he actually came off like a very well reasoned person. You could tell the host disagreed with him on some topics, but it was still a much more informative interview than you'll find almost anywhere on mainstream news.

Why would you exclude BBC just because they aren't based in the US? That's retarded.

And Al Jazeera English is less "biased" than any American news network.

NPR is the closest you can get to politically neutral in the US and it's still right leaning.

I can't even describe how absurd it is that you think NPR is right leaning. What you just said is the equivalent of joemama saying Fox News is a hidden mouthpiece for George Soros.

you are fucking hilarious, dude. thank you for sticking around

Drudge just says what's on everyone's mind, but they didn't say so they could be politically correct.

It becomes hard to tell if he is a joke of a person or a joke account.

the fact that both sides think its biased against them probably means its a good source of journalistic integrity

I would love to know exactly what scale puts NPR as "right leaning." I love me some NPR, but it's pretty obviously left-leaning by the American standards of politics.
