Semi-related to this debate - over the past few days I've made a bit of an observation. I have friends on both sides of the political spectrum, and I decided to read some of the stuff they linked to...

If anybody here on the right goes to Breitbart or InfoWars: Stop. Stop. Stop.
If anybody here on the left goes to AddictingInfo or Natural News: Stop. Stop. Stop.
I'd stay away from Occupy Democrat, U.S. Uncut, The Blaze, and RedState as well.

There's bias in a lot of news, but when many "new articles" are completely abstaining from reporting facts and literally make up things, it's no longer bias, but LYING. It's a sad state when Fox News and MSNBC are starting to skew toward the middle because of how extreme the outliers are.

I go to yahoo. Usually.
That said, the comments on yahoo can literally veer from "Hail Lord Trump!" to "Down with Trump!" within a comment or two.

Isn't Yahoo generally just repeating Reuters and similar organizations? Reuters is about as unbiased as they come as they just report facts, quotes, and then let others interpret.

And never read the comments! :D

Yahoo is a news aggregator now, basically.
