"" What determines the credibility of a news source here? ""
We have the likes of secureteam quite rightly not allowed due to hoaxing but what about plain old reporting bias and false reporting? There is at least one news station which falls into this category, CNN, and lately whenever someone posts a story and uses a link to CNN most people LOL at the link. If a majority of people who use this site LOL at CNN links and are unable to take them seriously, shouldn't they not be allowed to be used as a credible source seeing as they are, incredible?

At this point, credibility seems to be in the eye of the beholder.
In my seldom humble opinion, there are no truly credible news sources -- i.e., giving us the facts and just the facts and all the facts. Everyone has their spin. And we get the facts that support that spin -- nothing more and nothing less.
As long as there are opposing agendas there will always be spin, a perpetual state of push/pull.

For the most part:
Anything positive about Trump, or Democrats are running a satanic cult who molest and sacrifice children because they email each other about pizza = honest and excellent journalism.
Anything negative about Trump, or anything positive about a democrat = bigly fake news.

Simple. If it supports trump it's real. If it doesn't it's not.
You're the CNN/Clinton sycophant.
