Out the list DW, Guardian and Euro news are definitely the most credible in that order. Euro news is boring AF though after 15 minutes.

At least CCTV and Russia Today are authoritarian rogue contries' apologists. I sometimes suspect Al Jazeera too.

What... the.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, I do a combination of Other, DW, BBC, CNN, MSNBC and even a little bit of Fox.

I also do a lot of business new sites, because often their coverage is less tainted by political bias. Most business news sites are focused on trying to get real information for the purpose of investment. If you cloud up that information with political bullshit, your business news becomes worthless to reader/watchers that are trying to figure out how to play the markets.

Other also covers random smaller news sites whose political biases I don't know, but I just look at them with healthy skepticism.

WRT Fox, it's a shit ton of commentary/opinion dressed up as news. MAGA morons can't tell the difference though.

Especially right wingers often accuse liberal media of being "auhoritarian". How justified is it?


I think that means more like "liberal media do not tolerate voices that don't serve their narrative".

That said, I am not against "going authoritarian" against voices that actually call for unjustified authoritarian measures. Those voices reap what they sow.

As if there's no such thing as censorship by conservatives. :roll:

Of course, but what constitutes "unjustified authoritarian measures" leaves some room for interpretation. :)

That's why I think Reuters are true professional journalists. Just say what happened with as little commentary as possible.

I don't do Fox, but I do use PBS/NPR, NYT and WAPO, and some specialty sites like SciAm, legal websites with Dorf on Law being my favorite, Foreign Affairs. Wish I had a subscription to Atlantic.

I would also like a subscription to NYRB and NYTRB, but mostly NYRB (New York Review of Books)
