what is the best news site? i asked earlier for one that was unbiased,unopinionated and free of private interest, and was told thats not a thing. so are there any that are at least better than the rest or am i supposed to just keep reading 20 articles for each news story? because thats retarded. is there an aggregator or something that will just give me headlines with links to various articles? are rss feeds still a thing?
>>
>>54889407
All news sites are biased. I like Reuters and The Wall Street Journal
>>
>>54889407
all the news that i care about i read them at /int/
notice how i didn't say /pol/ or /news/. everything filters at /int/ anyways, we really are blue /b/ with flags

any more suggestions?
>>
>>54889407
The most neutral one imho is Reuters.

>Bloomberg
They release articles as ads and have an inconvenient sense of optimism.

>NYT
Very liberal and full of irrelevant topics.

>Guardian, HuffPost, DailyMail, Spiegel, Clarin, The Sun, Metro
Literally TMZ.

>CNBC
Not really a source of content, you might benefit from it only if you're in finance from the headlines.

>RT
Slightly anti-western but I like it.
>inb4 Russiaboo

>BBC, CNN, Zeit, La Nacion, Washington Post
Fine but not anything great.

>Slate
Chavism in the form of news.

>Fox News
Fallacy and ignorance every in-between breaks. It's an entertainment channel at most.

>FT
Don't know, it's paid.

>WSJ
Very nice informed and well written articles but fuck them for jewing the best articles out.

>The Economist
I don't have a formed opinion on this but their articles are very lacking of knowledge. It's a bunch of data that I don't care about. It might be the lack of bias that makes it boring, I don't know.

>Breitbart, Zerohedge
It looks like it's written by teenagers.

just pick a few varied ones you like the look of and use them

the key is to not let yourself be limited to just one source, the more (legit) sources you have, the clearer the view.

it may not be as unbiased as Reuters, but at least it's fun and has the "features" section. Just ignore news about Britain

plus their app has off-line cache so you can read in subway

PBS is good but NPR has a serious progressive bias that has been getting worse with time. I listen to it every morning on my way to school and it seems like they're making a concerted effort to talk constantly about Islamophobia or Black Lives Matter or the terror of Trump. Their main audience is already mostly liberal so they won't care if the news starts pandering to them, but I do. I listen to the news to hear the news, not to have some Muslima whine about prejudice for five minutes straight. Their "bantering" hosts drive me nuts too.
>>
>>54891346

That doesn't mean anything
All you have to do is find a well-spoken debater on one side and an inbred retard for the counter-point and then you wind up with a perfectly balanced argument according to the law.

Have you seen their documentaries about China ?

First 5 minutes are rhetorical questions about the good China potentially does, the other 40 are not so rhetorical statements about China being awful, oppressing the poor africans, stealing their jobs and hamfisted demonstrations of Chinese "Fraud" like that Chicken bullshit in Zambia or the bikinis in Brazil

this is a big concern of mine. there are some things that society has almost universally decided are true. chinas bad, immigration is good, black people are oppressed, etc. you never find documentaries or news stories to the contrary that aren't written/created by retards or shills. some would say this is just because the opposing side is retarded but thats too simplistic an argument.
>>
>>54891459
I fucking hate the news sites obsessed with islamaphobia, and this is coming from someone with a Muslim background. I laugh whenever I hear some bitch whine that she's oppressed because people don't like her burqa or hijab or find it weird in a country filled with Christians
>>
>>54891503
You're deluded if you think that it's biased. Nowhere will you ever see the BBC encouraging either accepting or turning away migrants, or supporting or attacking the policies of other countries regarding it

>>54891517
There's been loads of programmes about China recently, all about different things. I assume that that documentary was specifically about those issues in China, not "is China good"
>>
>>54891637
What I fucking love is that the journalist, to illustrate the unwiligness of public disclosure of a Chinese factory with ties to the government in Africa basically made an appointment with the head of the company, then came hours early and started harassing the poor woman that asked him to let her call the boss about it because he was away, and he yelled
>WHAT ARE YOU HIDING
at her aggressively for like 30 minutes while she was trying to tell him she is going to call the boss.

Then he just left and the conclusion was that Chinese factories are awful.
>>
>>54891774
>There's been loads of programmes about China recently, all about different things.

And I watched like 3/4 of them (2010-2015) for a journalism assignment and they were all the same journalism school tier biased crap.

lol i hate that michael moore level bullshit. the documentarian acts like a prick and when people act like a prick back he claims they're evil and cuts it. theres a vice documentary with two guys on a train. one is a jew and a kid about 14 comes over drunk trying to start a conversation. vice cut it to look like the kid was being threatening towards jews, the bigger american guy even got confrontational and looked like he was ready to fight the kid. but in reality he was just a drunk JEWISH kid trying to make friends on a train after getting out of school for the year. i never would have looked at it that way if a russian wasn't in the thread to point this out. they just needed a more interesting story than "obnoxious typical drunk child"(which isn't a bad story itself)

>obnoxious typical drunk child

exactly lol thats not a terrible story in and of itself. they could have just as easily cut it to be funny or sad but they had to go scary and anti-Semitic.

>>54891936
You sure convinced me with those hot opinions. I'm not trying to say that everything on the BBC is top quality, far from it. What I am saying is that out of every large news outlet, it's by far the most impartial.

I also don't think documentaries have to abide by the same impartiality rules. You don't hear Attenborough saying "global warming might also be a myth" on nature docs

All of them are biased, it's just unavoidable.

It's best to mentally account for the bias.

You don't need to read 20 articles. 2-3 is enough if you are trying to get a fairly informed view of a subject.

Get the left's point of view, right's point of view and some 'moderate' or something. They'll argue their points and its really up to you to see which point makes the most sense.

Lmao. They are extremely anti-western.

Yeah sure they'll bring out the criticism towards the west when it's due... but also when it's not due. When RT's primary goal is to criticize the West, of course they will have their times when they're reporting on something the western media is not. But the issue is that their business is to be critical of anything that goes against the interests of Russia.

And you'll never see an article by them that is critical of Russia.

>I don't have a formed opinion on this but their articles are very lacking of knowledge. It's a bunch of data that I don't care about. It might be the lack of bias that makes it boring, I don't know.

Eh, they do showcase bias. But their bias might be all over the place, but they're still over more pro-west. They're ok because they do cover interesting stuff other outlets don't.

That is an overstatement.

CNN, being a large news outlet owned by a large corporation does a solid job of trying to not be biased.

They are FAR better than Fox and MSNBC.

I'm afraid you got into the hype of "CNN is biased" because every smaller organization blames them of bias because "they're le large corporation and they said something against my interests"

Seriously, one day watch CNN, one day watch Fox and one day watch MSNBC. You'll see how solid CNN is for a cable news channel.

CNN is doing a pretty good job because they get attacked by conservatives, liberals and pretty much everyone.

Yes they have bias, they won't be too vocal against corporate interests but they're the best of the large cable news channels.
