Post subject: I'm bored so I made some lists (news)

News sites.

I like to get my news from a variety of perspectives so that I can figure out what the real story is. I miss the days when news was a simple recitation of facts and opinions were clearly labelled as such. I've known journalism majors that graduated from several different decades and from what I've pieced together even the teaching of the profession has changed.

As with the list of web comics, please add your own sources that you read and trust (and let us know about spin and filtering!). I'm particularly interested to see sources from outside the U.S. as we've got a heck of a media bubble going on over here.

Online News Sites Site Category Notes


  • Click! Technology BBC News coverage of what is new in technology.
  • Project Veritas Exposé Theatrical exposés of collectivist plots with a conservative spin. Seldom updated.
  • BBC World News News BBC News with a europhile spin.
  • Breitbart News Network News U.S. news with a conservative spin.
  • Financial Times News News with analysis based on how events affect the economy. Some stories are behind a paywall.
  • Forbes News News with analysis based on how events affect the economy.
  • National Review News U.S. news with a conservative spin. I'm reviewing the spin label for this and considering changing it from "conservative" to "Republican" (the two frames of reference parted company some time ago)
  • Google News News Aggregation site. World news with a socialist filter.
  • Newsweek News U.S. news.
  • Reason News U.S. news with a libertarian spin (one of the few sites with no spin).
  • Reuters News World news with a socialist spin.
  • Yahoo! News News Aggregation site with some "original" content. World news with an incompetent spin. Seriously where do they hire some of these writers.
  • The Western Journal News World news with a conservative spin (or at least I assume so as Google blocks them from their news sources).
  • ScienceAlert Science Aggregation site. I had no idea that science could be spun. Until now. It did not used to have a socialist filter.
  • Massive Science Science Aggregation site. Perhaps a replacement for ScienceAlert?
  • Engadget Technology AOL owned tech reporting. AOL is now owned by Verizon. I used to work for Verizon. I have opinions about them.
  • Scott Adams Says Vlog News interpreted from a 4D Chess master. Scott Adams claims to be "left of Bernie".

Two more news sites

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/ Not read much here yet, no idea if spun

https://pjmedia.com/ Possibly a Republican (different than conservative) spin - it's been a while since I read anything here so they may have changed.

One more site.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/

You can trust mostly trust this except as in regard to China. This is a propaganda site of the Falun Gong and that cult leader really hates the Communist government of China (which is why they appear so sympathetic)
