Who is the most trust worthy news source?

I would do this as a poll but there are so many today I don't want to miss any.

I am asking about networks TV/Radio but would welcome specific programs also.

2. None.

If there is a speech / townhall / press conference just go the source that has it unedited even if it's youtube (or a source that has the full transcript).

That's my main advice. Don't rely on what pundits or anyone else says about an event.

5. Everybody knows it's "Weekly World News"

Sheesh! Surprised you didn't know that.


Seriously, I use the Internet for news.

However, I really like Al Jazeera reportage.

7. for straight news...

Democracy Now for the left-wing interest stories you won't get elsewhere.

Conservative business-oriented publications can also be refreshingly blunt about how they see things. It's like they think nobody is looking: Forbes Magazine, The Financial Times, WSJ, sometimes Bloomberg.

I like the shows on MSNBC but they have difficulty reporting on stories that might displease their sponsers such as Chevron and such. They mostly just cover Democrats vs. Republicans horse-race stuff. Several major stories they just skip completely if it could paint the oil industry in a bad light. They get a lot of their money from big oil. But they are the best of the TV news options.

12. Someone that is outside of corporate interest Good Luck

The MSM (Main Stream Media) apparent shift to the right was total expected . Not an ideological path , or even a journalistic one for that mater. The MSM is not unlike the Sports Books on the Las Vegas strip, trying to balance wagers on both sides of the contest, making money no mater who wins.Especially in light of the "Citizens United" ruling by the Court, that allows corporations from the world over to influence American political races.But considering the incessant drive of Global Conquest by the U.S. maybe they should have a say. The illegality at a State level however should be clear. I digress. The MSM by directing their bias towards the underdog and compelling the polls to reflect an even money bet, on any political contest, realize the best profit$. Their intent and integrity should also be clear. The best Government money can buy. We must once again unite and opposed the insolent greed and disregard of the 1 %. As we celebrate our independence from the baron lords and oppression let each firework inspire us to restore the disillusionment of the electorate.

13. that depends

Who is most trustworthy? You'd have to say what being trustworthy entails.

I used to rely most heavily on PBS Newshour and NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered for overviews of the headline topics, but they tend to bend over backwards to present everything in what they view as a balanced way, to the point that topics in which one side is absurdly wrong was getting inordinate coverage (eg global climate change).

14. for cutting to the heart of the matter, I like Rachel Maddow

I think, generally speaking, Maddow makes a good effort to speak the truth on political topics.
And when she makes an error, she acknowledges it on air.

But as already noted, the show is on MSNBC (ie Comcast/NBCUniversal/GE), with funding from certain corporate sponsors that can flavor how information is presented - or whether it is presented at all. And they tend to focus primarily on the horse-race aspects of political issues during election seasons (which, given the nature of presidential elections these days, are most of the time), to the exclusion of other important issues.

And they are only on subscription-based cable which is not as widely available as some other news sources. (Especially compared to even Fox News.)

15. and there are individual NPR or PRI radio shows that are informative and entertaining

Dianne Rehm's radio show can often be informative and makes an effort to lay out various points of view on topics -- and Rehm tends to do a better job than a lot of tv news discussion hosts/anchors at keeping guests from making outlandish claims without being questioned.

However, I personally find it kind of tough to listen to her voice (she has a dysphonia).


I like On Point with Tom Ashbrook if it happens to be on when I'm in transit. It's very entertaining and good for getting superficial overviews of single topics, but it's not really as useful for getting in-depth analyses.
