Where do you find your News and sources of information?

What are your favorite (clearly biased or opinionated) News sources?

Do any unbiased News sources exist? Which do you think are the best or most fair?

I don't really read papers as 'this is what is happening', but as a story that someone is spinning to convey something. I generally think that Yes, Minister! conveyed the proper way to see them in this famous scene:

Probably the most neutral news/analysis outlet I've ever come across is the Caspian Report, by a political analyst based in politically neutral Azerbaijan. Foreign policy reporting from any major player (US, Russia, EU, China, etc.) is bound to be replete with biases.

Here's his bit on Brexit:
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it."
- Lord Dunsany -

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "
- W. B. Yeats -

Regrettably, I go to CNN often for news. This is only because they probably have the best website design out of all of the news outlets.

Probably WND. I also like Infowars, although Alex Jones is pretty insane.

Nope, but I think WSJ is your best bet, considering it is the most trusted throughout all political ideologies: http://www.businessinsider.com...

Also, local news is (for the most part) unbiased.

About half of what I get is from the BBC. The rest is scattered throughout various other sources.

I'm not sure if any "unbiased" anything exists.
Why?

I think reading The Sun is much more masochistic than Daily Mail.

Oh...I don't think my masochism levels have reached that high yet.
