Someone asked what the best news source is to watch/ read.
I have no idea. The question itself shows a lack of understanding on the part of the question asker. There is no ONE you should rely on exclusively that is THE BEST.
This WINNING!!! mentality generally ends up in intellectual laziness.
We all know people who keep to their filter bubbles. These folks imagine everything they need to know is in the New York Times, by definition. The appeal to authority.
We all know people who keep to their echo chambers. Utopian safe spaces mean one never has to consider dissenting information, other than that which comes from the burning of a hypocrite strawman. These folks imagine Rush Limbaugh is always right.
In other words, don’t trust. . Don’t go look for the one you want to hear. WINNING!!! is the path down magical thinking to its 31 assorted flavors of delusion.
Don’t just get a second opinion, cultivate a hundred media sources. Relying on one is a recipe for simpleton pie, be that ONE Rachel Maddow, Sean Hannity, or my dog Frodo.
Keep in mind, the majority of the media are owned by the same people.

Suggest looking at different sources rather than believing any one of them alone dispenses “The Truth.” Good luck with that!
