What do you think is the most reliable, trustworthy source of news in the UK? I know that these papers essentially bring us the same news and events, but in their own ideological, political views. They can be quite controversial at times and exaggerate stories to what they already were.

I think The Guardian is a great source of news. Am I wrong to think this? What do you think?

Hard to tell - The Times, Guardian and Independent are probably your best bet. All of them are pretty reliable, so choose the one that caters best to your political position.

Just from a completely personal POV but it's legal reporting on Employment Law hasn't been great. Believe it or not, The Daily Mail has published much more covering this topic and it's actually been fairly reliable

Other than that, it's just a little bit left-wingy.

And no boobs in it! Boo!

Exactly. The Daily Mail is the obvious answer. <<< This is evidence that my humour implant is still functioning normally.

Everyone is biased, but The Times is the best bet.

The Guardian is very reliable. It can be relied upon to be as biased as it can possibly be towards the left while still appearing to retain some credibility.

Probably The Times. I also think the The Telegraph is pretty good. Boring, but not as overtly biased as the other papers, especially if you don't care about internal Conservative Party politicking.
