    and what makes a good news source?

    reputation?
    credibility?
    identifiable opinions?
    objectivity?

    trying to find a good news outlet

    The key is not to find a news outlet. Find several, and when possible, look at the original source of the topic (a document, actual and entire interview, etc.)

    Let the journalists alert you to a story, or more likely a piece of the story; but never let a journalist think for you. Find the info yourself and interpret the actual facts yourself.

    My 2 cents.

    Nowhere in particular, since I have little interest in the run of the mill, flavor of the week, latest blow-up because Michele-made-a-mean-face type crap. If a story hangs around for longer than a week then I will go somewhere and look into it, usually everything on the first google search results page.

    I come right here to USMB for all important breaking news. I'm certain to get a fair objective explanation of all the days news.

    I like to Watch a Little of everything, and read as much as I can. I get a kick out of the Different Biases and how Poorly they all hide them. Then I try to find that Sweet spot between the 2 lines of BS where the Truth Lies. :)

    I get all of my news from "Lakhota", "rdean", "BDBoop", and all the other leftists in this forum.

    I believe that the leftists are honest, objective, fair, factual, mature, and I really like the way that leftists welcome alternative ideas and opinions.

    But, then again, I also like to pull out my toenails with rusty pliers, sit in a bathtub full of scissors, drink Drano on-the-rocks, stick lighted firecrackers down my pants, and slam ice picks in my ears.
