I know that I am not alone about this topic.Everytime someone posts a thread
about some "news" they heard,someone always replies with the following...
or :shk:
If all news media is unacceptable sources,what are we left with...magic 8 balls,
ouija boards,crystal balls maybe? What are acceptable news sources that ATS
members will consider listening to?

It depends on which TEAM you are on!

Seriously though, I believe that the truth is somewhere in the middle of all of the propoganda that we have shoved down our throats. That is why I like ATS, I can read many different perspectives and then try to make up my own mind on what is the truth and what is fiction......

Anything I agree with.

MSM sources are good, despite what some say.

I'll trust the AP over someone who can't spell any day.

I know what you mean,you have to sift through a lot of garbage to find
the truth.

I recommend reading a diverse selection of news, including international and various political bias. I try and scan through Al-Jazeera and a couple East Asian websites once a week. I look at huffington and bloomberg daily and check in on Gallup and Pew. I appreciate the Economist for international relations.

Try and find a couple new sites every week, they are endless.

Of course, all of these should be taken with regard to the source.

Excellent question. The answer is variety. I wake up early and usually start viewing from TV. I check RT, and then scan MSM, yes even Fox. Once I have absorbed a bit, I do some stuff and then come internet for some more spin.

Then I come here...

Thankyou, ATS.

Mainstream News are media, its for entertainment... you local news are more fact, stick to story and don;t pick favoritism....

If a news happens in another country, try looking up THAT countries news media, then compare it to yours.

American Mainstream News is by far the worse way to get information because its manipulative and picks sides.

I get about all of my news from ATS.When I try talking to my husband
about something I heard.The first thing out of his mouth is," Did you hear
this on that website you're on?" If my answer is yes,he frowns a little.

My problem...I have ATS members who won't accept anything MSN.My
husband won't listen to anything from ATS.I am trapped between two worlds.

I am trapped between two worlds.

Take heart. So am I. Imagine a world where your whole family is strictly Republican (voted for Bush, voting for Romney), are churchbots and believe strongly in John Wayne and Ronald Reagan. Are we retching yet? They go to the zoo, circuses and Disney Land, read Time Magazine and watch Judy Woodruff on PBS News Hour.

If I want to find out whats what in that world, all I have to do is show up at family gatherings, where they all poke fun at the black sheep (me) and talk endlessly about themselves, their money and their stuff.

I must say that I was totally brainwashed as a child, reared in the US by Narcissists, church and state TV. At great cost to my psyche and soul, I have shed that cocoon and flown that mind set. Now I understand a bit more about the world, and I am stronger for it. I have been on both sides of the fence.

Won't get fooled again.

This is the only reputable news source I've ever found anywhere.

Totally Reliable News

If the MIBs use it, it has to be good.
