My wife gets most of her news from CNN and so the other day I was telling her that CNN was biased and requested her to stop watching/browsing CNN. But then she asked me "where else can I go?" and I didn't have a good answer for her.

So question for everyone - do we have a list of news sources we can TRUST? I like RT America (http://rt.com/on-air/rt-america-air/), but is there anything else? We should make a comprehensive list and sticky it.

C-Span has the most un-biased and truthful reporting on TV right now on the election coverage.

OK, but what about everyday news? Non-election politics?

No such thing as unbiased news source.

The main thing is to read from many perspectives to find more more of the "truth"

Yeah, I wouldn't say "don't watch this or that," I'd say browse all the sources, heavy on the internet doing your own research.

Some of these are fairly left wing with a few libertarian thrown in....but still worth a browse.

I like the economic collapse blog because it tells you about the state of the economy....but if I read it too long, I get really depressed. http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/

I wouldn't say RT is accurate, fair and unbiased. It's just a different perspective and specifically targetting the market of people who hate America.

RT is not unbiased.
