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:
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

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.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

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.
