Well, off the top of my head, from a few i've been reading this morning, I'd say www.democracynow.org...
and The Guardian are good examples of
fairly non-sensationalized media. I only mention those, because, as I've said, it's what I've been reading this morning. They still have their own
bias. All news does. They are better because they are both less sensational and because they are more 'factually sound'. A LOT of what Jones talks
about is simply not true. And he rarely if never goes back and corrects himself. He has a story line he is trying to fulfill, because it's how he
markets his brand. So he seeks out info that he can present that will confirm his storyline. A real journalist seeks out the truth, no matter how it
fits into their storyline. Alex Jones has basically become niche market, targeted towards people who reject the 'mainstream', but still need their
world view molded in the same way, just from a slightly different perspective.
Once you move beyond this very juvenile and limited need to have everything's meaning spelled out for you, you can discover there is a whole world of
info out there. There are independent journalists all over the world. There are libraries full of knowledge waiting for you to digest and piece
together the truth. But first you have to step away from the charismatic loudmouths who only serve to make you into a target demographic, either for
cable news' sponsors, or the disaster prep and gold coins and dvd's of the 'conspiracy' world.
