    I use the media to highlight something. Then I look for a university study or statistics off the ONS web site to support/dismiss it (UK)

    Probably didn't mention methodology because it's arbitrary...

    I have very high regard for Reuters. And proud as punch that it’s Canadian owned. There’s no one else who values their integrity and ethics more. I agree they’re top of the heap. By miles. I dearly wish they’d make a TV network ... but it would be boring.

    As CNN has taught us, there’s no place on TV for real news. When I was a teen CNN would have been alone at the top of that chart. Now they’re damn lucky to be straddling the yellow box.
    Thanks from HayJenn, Friday13, Amelia and 1 others

    Ruters, AP, Mcclatchy, Axios, Bloomberg and ProPublica are all great sources. Straight news, no bias. I watch CNN in a pinch, but I find most of their "contributors" to be super annoying.

    Unfortunately, the link doesn't reference the methodology behind the ratings.

    The "methodology" is that some woman on social media made it up. You'll notice that she put the NYT and WaPo in the middle, not on the left. So on my chart, she falls on the lower left portion- "liberal, contains innaccurate/fabricated info".

    Then show us your unbiased chart, does it put Fox in middle as "fair and balanced", does it show Infowars as the "go to" for unbiased and balanced reporting? Enquiring minds want to know!

    Infowars is conspiracy theory bullshit. But CNN and MSNBC and NYT and WaPo are the communications department of the democrat party and therefore neither unbiased, accurate nor "news".

    Something I learned today. The Daily Mail is that bad, Wikipedia has banned people referencing to it's stories and as a source of information.

    I often see The Daily Mail stories linked on forums, as well as American forums.
