Where do you get your news? RT? CNN? MSNBC? Reddit? Here?
News source doesn't really matter so long as they aren't known for outright fabricating things (RT) or only focus on what they know will make their audience happy (Fox News).
What matters is what kind of long-form, magazine-style journalism you read. That's what helps you synthesize the facts (news) into a well-educated understanding of the world.
God I hate NPR. It's such snooty lib shit. And I'm saying this as someone who considers himself by and large a lib.
I generally just read the Economist and then watch local news. Here in Japan I read the Japan Times.
All news sources are biased to some degree, dude. BBC less than CNN, but both have bias. CNN is the most tolerable of the big American cable news outfits (Fox and MSNBC are complete trash), but it's still firmly left wing biased.
Conservatives often bitch about left wing bias in news in America, but they do have FOX, the Wall Street Journal, and much of the radio airwaves. Radio news talk is dominated by right wing pundits.
Sure, RT is biased, but every Western media is so. You just don't realize it because you are used to it. I've read completely fake news about Russia many times on BBC, CNN, Washington Post, The Guardian, The Independent and others.
