Default News and Politics- unbiased

I just thought we could compile some of your favorite News/Politics/Blog/Fact Check sites. Specifically, unbiased sources. The best straight up sources you frequent. I'll start off with a couple:

The Week- The Week Magazine: Political News and Cartoons, Current Events and Entertainment Online
PolitiFact- PolitiFact | Sorting out the truth in politics
Slate- Slate Magazine - Politics, Business, Technology, and the Arts - Slate Magazine

There are unbiased new sources?

I just usually check Drudge, CNN and Reddit's /r/politics. Covers Right, Left and Center.

There are no unbiased sources. Ever. Anywhere.

The best you can do is look at a bunch of sources on the same subject, tease out the facts, and form your own opinion.

Yes...you are both correct. Some are obviously worse than others. Just looking for the best possible is all.

Gilligan's Island was OK- I lusted after Mary Anne.

As far as the "News", was sitting in hotel lobby this AM, sipping a cup of coffee, killing time with USA Today. They offered for my edification-

1. Headline- drastic jump in traffic fatalities in some states-

Umm- lemmee see which states. Well, they list the states with the biggest jumps. Among the worst- Wyoming- went from 134 fatal accidents to.... 135.

2. Headline- Alcohol consumption increases risk of unsafe sex.







Sorry- I was over there bashing my head against the concrete wall.
REALLY??? I never would have suspected that getting smashed could POSSIBLY impair your judgement in such matters.

Although an excess of tequilla may explain how a couple of us woke up in Australia after a party.


Party was in San Diego.

I'm not sure what you're looking for. Being a news junkie, I have found reading many sites is better for learning the truth than reading one "unbiased" site; unbiased sites do not exist.

I start out with Drudge Report to see if the world still exists and then to Lucianne.com.
End up on FirearmsTalk, of course.

Well...would you put the 'Huffington Post' in the same camp as 'The Wall Street Journal' (WSJ Business news)for a straight up news source?
