Where do you get your news?
I try to be smart about where I get my news. I use the media bias chart and Snopes, to check my sources, and always try to read with an open mind.
I’m dismayed by the things people will believe especially when it is something so glaringly horrible. My views lean to the left but I don’t need outlets like MSNBC of even CNN to validate them and I avoid them as much as I do Fox News. I read some from The Washington Post (it is the paper I grew on, after all), even though I realize it is a bit bias, and The New York Times, which I subscribe to through our public library. I enjoy The Atlantic and Politico but will go to The Economist and Forbes for a different angle. I look at the AP and NPR to fact check anything that looks too good or too horrible to be true.
