What constitutes a credible news source?

It seems to me that PrisonPlanet is just as good as any other out there.

In fact, some of the stories that come from there have mostly turned out to be true.

Where do we get the scoop? Fox?

Sure, there are others and you know what????? They are not going to touch anything controversial unless its a shooting that will be made public anyway.

The administration should reconsider what is a news source or LIST all recommended sources.
Seriously, do you have a list?

I'd like to have it. Its infuriating to post something and then have it moved because it came from an unreliable source.

I respect you and know you are only doing your jobs but a list (although not exactly freedom of speech) might clarify these concerns i have.

I'm willing to play by the rules.

In some way its hard to give a black and white definition. However I would rank Rense and Indiadaily at the top of the NOT credible news sources.

However for some the credibility or not of the source is secondary to the information it provides. If they want to believe in something they are inclined to believe it regardless of the credability of the source.

This thread is a perfect example where an obviously fraudulent idea carries legs because people don't value truth above ideas. In that case all you can do is to let people slop around in their own puddle.

Credible news sources? Hmmm...that would be video taped evidence with verifyable eyewitness testimony that the tapes are completely unaltered.

Nothing is untampered...if it is presented in the media, the tampering actually increases exponentially when applied to the importance of the story.

As to the question about what source can be used, this thread just recently dove into the same murky water.
