    ABC - Radio
    Fox - online
    CNN - online
    Al Jazeera - rarely
    With those I think I get a good cross section
    No TV news
    If of interest Google search on subject
    I only check when I want to and watch/listen to very little live breaking news or "shows" "talk shows/radio". Research and read policy speeches from candidates.
    If a movement or group activity interests me I go to their information directly - blog/website/Facebook.

    Cool question I had not taken inventory on this. I probably only spend about 15 minutes a day "staying informed".

      By accident I broke my TV 1/2 year ago (wrong transformer) never replaced it. I usually do Google, BBC, Reuters but sought out others yesterday: allsides & economist after learning about manipulated bubble up of G's searches on Hillary. sad

    I don't really have a trust factor as much as what is available. I have basic cable, so no CNN, MSNBC, Fox, and etc. I don't listen to talk radio. Reading through those offered I have used many while no allegiance really to any other than below.

    Note: Generally I seek objectivity and feel I can separate opinion and be critical of commentary to my satisfaction. The only criticism I encounter with reporting agencies is here at HP mainly in the forums. However, I have discovered there 'at times, but not always' interesting links to follow with curiosity.

    TV Talk Shows . . . (Sparks interest for further online research if desired)
    Face the Nation
    This Week with George Stephanopoulos
    Charlie Rose (PBS telecasts)
    CBS This Morning
    Local CBS network (San Diego)

    Polling, research, and articles not necessarily political . . . I have a tendency to check them first when researching a topic I am unfamiliar with.
    Pew Research

    At times I read Politifact.com for perspectives

    European . . .
    BBC - Britain
    The Local - Sweden
    Reuters - Britain Headquarter

    I don't go to any U.S. periodical habitually like Huffingpost, Washington Post, CNN, and etc. When I research a topic of interest I usually read three resources looking more for likeness first and then differences.

    I have over the years learned how to navigate .gov adequately.

    I do on occasion read The Onion and the Motley Fool.

    Face the Nation
    Fox News-Sunday Morning (Actually quite objective)
    PBS - Leans left but still very worthwhile.
    BBC (occasionally)

    CBS on the radio.  They just present the news with no agenda and no bias. It's just pure unadulterated news with no opinions.

    You seem to know a lot. Healthy. My best Source is my intuitive feel. You will find that even the best of us have Agenda's and even history is or can be erroneous. Go with your 'feel.'
