The Most Trusted Name in Unbiased News
Who is fake news?
It is not easy to get to the truth of national or international news. There is so much propaganda clothed in news-like fashion, so many alternate facts to the same story, everyone's got something to hide except me and my monkey. Everyone believes in a story based on their own biases or political persuasion.
But, in a recent study and poll, there are a few news agencies that most agree on as unbiased news. Whether you are on the right or left of the political spectrum, there are a handful of news agencies that everyone can agree on in providing balanced and unbiased news. No spin, no agenda. Just how it is.
- Associated Press (AP)
- BBC News
- Wall Street Journal (not their editorials)
- Google News (this pulls news from a variety of sources)
- Al Jazeera (as surprising as this is being Arab, they do present both sides)
- Christian Science Monitor (don't let the name fool you, they just report the news and facts)
- USA Today\CBS\ABC News
Notice who is NOT on this list: CNN and Fox. That is because both cater and spin facts to a degree to appease their left or right agendas. But, there are many more agencies that spin the news story to the left or right.
Biased News to the Left
- Washington Post
- New York Times
- Mother Jones
- Huffington Post
Biased News to the Right (pro-Trump)
- Fox News (some news shows have less spin than others)
- Breithart News (the spin is excessive and borders on far right)
- NewsMax (Trump's favorite for all the obvious reasons)
CNN did poll well for providing factual information most of the time but many of their shows did spin negative Trump information in presentation. If you watch it on a regular basis, Trump can do nothing right (even jokes). Fox, on the other hand, except for some shows, Trump can do no wrong! Which is certainly not the case. NewsMax treats Trump like a God or the Chosen One. Breithart usually attacks those on the left with some unbelievable spin. The Russian news outlet, RT, was never mentioned by respondents, nor was Sky News, out of England, both are 24 hr. shows. RT, is really just a Putin propaganda machine and their take on international news always spins in Russian favor, while Shy News is more like the BBC
Finally, the research showed that 62% did believe that news was biased on TV, whether cable or not, and a whopping 80% know that whatever is posted online as news or fact is biased spin. That tells you that in the coming 2020 Presidential Election will be a lot of hype and bias online.
Just don't believe everything you read unless you have read the same from multiple news outlets!
