1) stop watching fox news

2) you have now eliminated bias from whatever news you're watching

that said, as for quality, the BBC is the best out there, i agree.

3) Watch CBS. Not matter what proven inaccuracies they put up there, it's cool because it's not Fox.

To be honest, at the end of the day you're best off reading several different news sources to get a better all around picture. Everyone's going to add their own partisan spin. I personally enjoy watching programs that foster debate, because seeing the extreme views of either side can often be more educational, particularly because you know they're not attempting to hide any biases.

That said, I've yet to find any general news source that's not pitifully biased and sensational. Good luck in your search, but it will turn up fruitless, no doubt.

NPR has had a handful of accusations of conservative bias in its many years. It's like saying the moon is red because everyone once in a while the light scatters just the right way at the horizon.

I do appreciate that they sometimes have more in depth coverage of a given subject, but overall I rarely hear them challenge existing paradigm established by either government apparatus or private news, have any real examination of US foreign policy, often treat rightwing viewpoints as equally valid even when they're clearly not, and in general don't really see how they're significantly different in their coverage of most news.

I will give them kudos in that they do occasionally touch on subjects that are more or less ignored by the rest of the national media. However they also do things like blacklisting actual leftists (here's Chomsky talking about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXh1_ubCQAI) and the farthest they'll ever push is to basically repeat mainstream Democrat opinions.
dude, nothing looks left to you. you are literally as far on the end of the spectrum as humanely possible. there is nowhere left for you to go. it's no wonder you think this. you can only face in one direction

No, he is not that far left. He is just an imbecile that thinks he has a clue. Thinks he is a clever soul trolling anyone right of a standard socialist.

real news doesnt exist anymore. journalism is supposed to be free of bias. instead, we get the oreillys and the obermans and all the various ways that people have found to express their own opinions under the guise of journalism, or the sensationalism that they need to get the advertising dollars that they think they deserve.

seriously. Anyone who thinks O'reilly or Olberman are journalists should just give up on life.

All you people bitching about NPR: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationa...adio#Criticism

If you are looking for a SINGLE source that is nearest the center and also most educational... yea NPR is probably it.

Diversity is key though...
