With so much poor journalism / news agencies out there, I’m curious, where/who do you rely on for accurate news/information?
Everywhere including Fox. And it is quite obvious that Fox exists in a different universe to everyone else, both national and international. It is interesting to see that when bad news about Trump surfaces and makes headlines Fox usually buries it and leads with some Hillary or FBI conspiracy theory.
The News App on iOS brings me everything, left to right, up and down! We watch local PBS news station, PBS and BBC. Some accuse these sources of leaning left, and I can see where they do at times but they challenge the left at times just as the right.
On the News app I avoid ‘opinion’ pieces, Fox is pretty good about labeling them that way, others not so much. Even so, an opinion with sources is prettty useful. I wish I could have the Think Progress people argue with The American Spectator people.
YES! Finman100, me to, well- until CC and CableOne had a falling out. I guess it’s Viacom and CableOne.
Still, TG South Park and The Daily Show are still viewable to us.
PBS. I watched Fox a few times. They are no good. However, there are even worse things. Like Alex Jones.
YouTube and CNBC
Jimmy and Seth
CNN, Fox "News" and occasionally BBC and NPR.
As a side note concerning journalism and news reporting, We have a very close friend of my son, currently serving in the Marines. They just finished an exchange Marine type of thing with England. I asked how the British Marine was here in America, the Brit was a bit taken back by how friendly all the Americans he ran into were. When asked why he was taken back he commented that if you watch the news in England you'd swear all Americans are angry, in turmoil, upset and mean to not only visitors but also to each other.
I guess poor journalism extends far and wide, even across the pond.
John Oliver, CNN, ABC news on Slacker.
But mostly HackerNews ;-)
These forums, and reddit
NYT, The Atlantic, MSNBC, CNN, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Time Magazine, Washington Post, AP, Apple News Feed, Rolling Stone, The Nation, Reuters, BBC, CBS News, PBS. Have subscriptions/access to all. No Facebook, very little Twitter. I look at Twitter maybe 1-2 times a week, 86ed Facebook over a year ago. Don't listen to talk radio at all.
@dmm sounds about right. You have to look at a fair number of sources to piece together WTF actually happened. I remember when the US news was held to high editorial standards. These days you need to look at the foreign press as well.
I do throw in Fox as well. Sometimes the way they dance around the facts gives me a clue as to what the facts are.
Electrek.co - there is a great journalist named Frederick Lambert that is really in-the-know about what's going on with Tesla!
Teslarati.com - there is a great journalist there named Simon Alvarez that doesn't miss much!
Tesla Daily Podcast - Rob Maurer is extremely sharp and has a lot of followers feeding him info. He doesn't always get the podcast out before my drive to work in the morning, but I've learned so much from him - about Tesla and the stock!
For general news (sans Tesla) - CNBC is really the best (both on TV and Slacker) - because they are reporting on the money side of things, they really are constrained by truth much of the time (but not when it comes to Tesla-as there, the money is on market manipulation in a big way and these guys are no experts on automotive, living in NYC where nobody drives like here in California). I have noticed many trends and crises predicted and though they sometimes give air to click-bait guests or miss asking the good questions, they typically have enough of an array of well-informed guests that you can form your own conclusions (except with Tesla, which again, the news is dominated by the haters and the misinformed and the just plain stupid).
Also you can check out my posts at TeslaChick - I'm on all the social media posting opinions and Call Options analysis and crap that people are probably sick of, lol
Website: TeslaChick.net and TeslaChick.xyz
etc. (I don't even remember my handles on all these - just check the links on TeslaChick.xyz
WSJ, NYT, and The Economist.
If I revealed my sources to you I would haf to kill you.
