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:

"Over her head the stars, the thoughts of God in the heavens,
Shone on the eyes of man, who had ceased to marvel and worship"
- Henry Longfellow -

"We enjoy, we see nothing by direct vision; but only by reflection, and in anatomical dismemberment."
- Thomas Carlyle -

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.

I mostly read the Guardian, the Independent, BBC, RT, Haaretz, EL Pais...I guess the Daily Mail for amusement purposes.
All the time your soul is craving and longing for something else. And in vain does the dreamer rummage about in his old dreams, raking them over as though they were a heap of cinders, looking in these cinders for some spark, however tiny, to fan it into a flame so as to warm his chilled blood by it and revive in it all that he held so dear before, all that touched his heart, that made his blood course through his veins, that drew tears from his eyes, and that so splendidly deceived him!

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.

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.
