I gained a mistrust for TV and Radio news as a teenager, especially during the Vietnam War era. And in the 50s, the public schools indoctrinated us with specially designed propaganda films. So while I believe some truth in media exists, that is, so and so wrecked their car. And severe weather did this or that, I do not believe the human heart can present truth above this level. Jesus says you shall know the truth, implying that people naturally don't know the truth, much less speak it.
So what is your favorite "news" source?

Before answering the question, I'd like to clarify that there are news sources and opinions. For an example, the Rachel Maddow, Sean Hannity and O'Reilly Factor aren't news sources. They are opinion shows. Opinion shows with thorough going analysis can be useful, but they're not news.
My favorite news sources are NPR and Vox.com.

Thanks Alex, I'm not familiar with these but I will give them a try.

I use a smorgasbord approach with a news feed. That is good and bad. I pick up a little here and there from a wide cross section. My wife scans various headlines, mainly Yahoo and fills in the gaps for me. We get Email updates for some specialty news in Asia and I keep an eye occasionally on local publications. I am not really a news junkie. But the internet has changed that some. I keep trying to limit my time to no more than 10 minutes 2X a day. Is that too much?
