So, many of you make it clear that you consider most news sources unfairly biased.  I'm curious--which news sources do you consider fair and unbiased (or least biased)?

I think that is also a fair question for liberals.

I was watching CNN the other night and felt they seemed pretty fair.

I watch both local news, CNN and fox. Then I go with my gut on which spin to follow!
I do believe the news is not what it should be. Even with small local stories, the news does not always show the truth. For instance, there was a death near our home, and a family member of the decessed claimed the employees of the place of the death waited 25 minutes to call the ambulance, while time lapsed video showed less than two minutes had gone by, and the ambulance was called, and life saving measures were already taking place. The news never investigated, just aired the angry family members rant
How could you be a reporter of the news and not ask questions?.

C-span, world news, library of congress, and public records. I'll watch mainstream news once in a while as a sitcom. 


Edit:  I am a liberal... I just wanna show the difference, LOL..

Thanks for the replies!  I'm curious, especially since so many thought the RNC was fair and unbiased. Of course not, neither is the DNC.

Myself, of all the big news sources on TV, I do think CNN is probably the best. Certainly not unbiased, but probably least so (of the biggies again).  BBC I like since they do cover stories about international affairs that get little airtime here. 

I do like factcheck.org to check candidate claims.

Fox and MSNBC are entertainment for me, both are extreme in their views.  Morning Joe is more balanced, but it's all opinion, and I don't like the way Mika gets shouted down again and again.

Well.. I don't have cable so I can't say I get anything from there.  I pull up all sorts of sources on line.

I do dismiss anything from the Huffington Post.  I have yet to find an article that is straight up from there.

Fair enough, most of their site is opinion. I like reading some opinion sites and blogs too, but I don't take anything as truth in them.

ALL news sources are biased -- Most lean left, a few lean right.

FYI - FactCheck.org and Politifact are both left-leaning. 

The Annenberg Public Policy Center of U of Pennsylvania, which owns FactCheck.org, used to be a conservative organization that turned liberal when the couple died and their estate passed on to the new owners.

We conservatives have to do our own fact checking.
