I used to think Fox was the only one we could trust.
That was over 5 years ago...
Now I go 100% with Independant News
No more MSM Actors
What say you?

Bloomberg is free, and offers a global perspective. It seems to have disappeared from the cable lineup a few days ago. Any clues? You can still watch it online...free.

Trust only those who have won multiple Pulitzer, Edward R. Murrow, or similar awards within the past 10 years (includes staff in the count).

Fox and every other Murdoch property have been Pravda 2.0 since the 90's. Anyone who has relied on Murdoch is brainwashed and propagandized; but of course they think they aren't. That is how the process works, though...duh. The undereducated love Murdoch properties, and Murdoch built his media empire by manipulating the undereducated.

Independent news is trustworthy if the journalists are esteemed and reputable. The Daily Beast, The Hill, The Intercept, Democracynow, Bloomberg, etc. Your not going to find many right-leaning sources in this camp because most have sold their souls since the W Bush, or even Gingrich years.

If one cannot be bothered with actual due diligence, then tempering consumption with multiple reputable foreign media sources (non-Murdoch) also works. Al Jazeera, BBC, FT, The Guardian, etc.

None of them. There is no longer any news. It is all their opinions. I have my own opinions, I don't need theirs.

that's the most annoying thing about news "analysis" ... "pundits"...."opinions". analyzing is what readers do to form opinions. their analysis is how they want you to see it, their opinion is how they want you to think about it. that's not news it's propaganda

and the highest percentage of trailer parks, homeless, and poverty is in the dark blue state of California, and quite a few in Oregon and Washington, too.

They needed the trailer parks so the token Republicans would have someplace to live.

Trailer parks at least support themselves. That's much better than the leech socialists who suck the government tit for a living. Most workers are getting very sick of supporting democrats who refuse to work. Generation after generation of professional welfare "clients" support useless career politicians who promise the most benefits. That's why and how a community organizer was elected president.

I lived in a house trailer for a number of years because at that time, it was all I could afford. My house trailer was paid for by ME. I never lived off welfare. There was a time when people were ashamed to be on welfare. Democrats have changed that from shame to a right.

I'm with glalt on this one.
So to get back on track: My favorite for a long time has been https://www.sgtreport.com..but am noticing some Troll websites trying to infiltrate. But all in all, a well balanced wide spectrom of indepentant news.
For Finance, some will like ThemoneyGPS.com. A Canadian guy, great insight, free online books.

We all know Obama care was Obama's flagship achievement, that ironically, caused Hillary to lose the election, and is often the top reason given for expatriation. A tougher question that is a good one to ask any Leftie, is what did Barry Soetoro do to win a Nobel Prize? It might even make them sweat.

I read bits and pieces of many different sources of information. Their credibility rests on their research and sources. I am skeptical of all of them.

The BBC weather forecast is spot on at least half the time, and their shipping forecast is even more accurate.

The Guardian football results are never wrong and I tend to agree with some of their opinion pieces. 'Jonathan Pie' is always on the ball... and if Private Eye was full of lies it would not have been taken to court so many times.

"The CIA OWNS everyone of any significance in the Major Media"--Former CIA Director William Colby
Why do so many make jokes about posting a Youtube video, when the MSM is nothing more than multi-millions dollar studios with unlimited funds to create videos and twist the truth and attack those who speak the truth? And so many will plan their meals around this fake media brainwashing everyday, and then go out and tell their friends what they saw on their daily dose of MK Ultra.
You should appreciate those indepentant sources. They spend their own funds many times and face relentless attacks.
These people make good videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h10FaTfkMEY
I don't trust the weather and the weather channel is owned by CIA. They create the weather and if there is no weather in store, they just may "create" some weather fear porn to keep the masses locked down. Its a great tool of control.

But is it true.... Did Colby really say that?

Chronology:
1. William Colby was the CIA Director from 1973 to 1976.
2. He died in April, 1996.
3. The first mention of this quote is in David McGowan’s 2000 book “Derailing Democracy”, Common Courage Press, 4 years after Colby’s death. One might have thought that a statement that powerful and controversial by a public figure, the head of the CIA, would have appeared sometime prior to four years after his death. In fact, one might have thought that it would generate controversy more or less immediately!


So, did Colby say it?
1. There is no primary source attribution or any source attribution at all, earlier than McGowan’s for this quote.
2. The quote appears prominently in his introduction (at page 13), with no first source attribution. Or, put slightly differently, there's nothing which would indicate anything other than that McGowan fabricated the quote.
3. Over 200 other quotes are cited in this book with first source attribution, but not Colby’s.
4. Another quote which appears in McGowan's book without first source attribution is one from Lincoln (at page 33), which is now known to be a lie. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/abrah ... -prophecy/
5. McGowan was a well known skeptic and conspiracy theorist who has weighed in with his own theories of everything from Lincoln's assassination to 9-11 to the Boston Marathon Bombing and everything in between.
