I pretty much use everything I can find,( avoiding the obvious fake media outlets,)  basically cross reference it against each other on the PC.

And I tend NOT to believe anything at first glance. It has to be verified several times through several known sources.

SOMEWHERE in the middle usually LIES  the truth.  :P no pun,,,,, :th_thicon_funny:

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".

My newspaper sent me a bill that is an increase of 54.4% over last year. When asked why I'm cancelling my subscription I mentioned the 54.4% annual increase and the fact that the quality of the paper had decreased. The agent said "but you are getting a 49% decrease over the published price since I've been a customer for nearly 60 years"!!

I like BBC for US domestic news, as they appear to have the least spin (assuming the queen isn't visiting).

They certainly have no problem telling OUR dirt to the world.
But im sure the people in Britain have no clue about their own dirty laundry.

I get the bulk of my news from OANN.
But I balance that with the evening news from the BBC and NBC, just to hear what the opposition has to say. I will say that I can get more actual news coverage with one hour of OAN than a whole day of coverage by any of the major networks.

Do yourself a favor, find America One News Network (OANN) on your cable carrier. 208 on Uverse. News without the Network BS or bias

Its funny, I had the BBC on tonight.

They had some OBVIOUS liberal azzhole on there from the US telling some black british reporter about ALL the russain collusion evidence and the POTUS cover up, which he also had all the evidence for.
Collusion ,,,collusion ,,,collusion,,,, .

I didnt realize they had found anything.  :th_nuts:

I enjoy reading the diverse views of BBC, AFP, Xinhua, JPost, Arab News, RT and a few others.
BBC 'seems' to have a relatively balanced view of US domestic and non-UK world events.

Take a look at Xinhua, an official news source of the Chinese government.
It is probably the most sophisticated foreign source.
Their Spanish feed is slanted to be positive toward Spanish speaking readers.
Same for English, French, German and other languages.
