Mainstream media makes up and swerves things into their partie's favor. The internet has changed how people get their news for the better.

Absolutely. Although I do watch tv for the live breaking news

Smart news. Find it in the App Store.

All of it. Today's US TV newsrooms are all a mockery of journalism. Papers are antiques separately and somewhat obtusely resisting obsolescence to a slow and sure death.

Yes. BBC, NPR, the Guardian, and Vice News are my favourites.

Primarily Al Jazeera America plus BBC, NPR, and the AP app

Al Jazeera is anti-Israel biased and owned by the Qatari monarchy.

I only use it for Middle East news because they focus on it a lot.

I've watched it for two years now and I have never seen anything indicative of Israel hate. Unless you consider also supporting Palestinians as Israel hate then they really aren't anti-Semite in any sense. AJAM does some fantastic documentary work.

Yes multiple sources, question all of them, come to a logical conclusion.

Yeah, and anything I hear on TV gets crossed referenced with pertinent articles before they get accepted as true.

Yes, 95% of my news consumption is from online sources, of which 50% is Facebook, of which 65% are articles from the Washington Post.

Besides The Washington Post I also follow the BBC, The New York Times, NPR, and The Jerusalem Post as my main news sources with a smattering of stuff from other places.

Online really?? Hell No!!! No wonder why people in this country are so misinformed and clueless to the real world. Any liberal reject can make a blog and tell a one sided story and people call it news. Yahoo is worst at doing that.

You could just as easily replace "liberal" with conservative so your argument makes no sense.

Blogs are not news. They are blogs.

People are misinformed because they watch MSNBC/Fox and hear an echo chamber. They get their news in a medium that only gives them 2 minutes of attention before moving to the next subject. Online news is way more enriching and informative.

Again, blogs are not news. You can subscribe to the times, WSJ, Post. Real newspaper. Daily Kos, Media Maters, Slate, and right wing blogs are not news.

Dude it's the 21st century. Unlike TV the Internet is diverse in its news. From thinkprogress.org to the blaze, you have plenty to choose from, liberal, conservative, libertarian, whatever

I mainly stick to Weekly World News. It's important to get an international perspective.

100%, Secular Talk and online BBC News. Sometimes I'll listen to Fox or Limbaugh with my parents to get a good laugh. I wonder what other countries think when they hear Fox and the right wing loons?

"No". I get most of my news through Sirius Satellite Radio, so although not "online", it's also not traditional television or print. 📡

It pulls from Time, Slate, CNN, NY Times, among others. Don't hate on Apple

RT? Al Jazeera? Just 2 I read.

Wooperth Blue Dog Democrat

Dude, RT is owned by the Russian government and spreads a lot of propaganda against the West and Ukraine.

Al Jazeera is owned by the Qatari monarchy and is anti-Israel, anti-Assad.

Like I said it's just two of others I read. getting the other side of the news is not a bad thing. I read everything with a grain of salt.
