What are some good sources of news?

Preferably ones which have differing opinions so can hear both sides of the argument.

And also ones that don't make facts up, etc!

- Financial Times & The Economist
- Reuters (similar to below, compare with RT and other news outlets to highlight any bias)
- Combine BBC & RT to view any 'conflicting' information and come to a conclusion yourself.
- The Week UK (summarises a lot of the news for quick digestion).

I find the Socialist Worker to be a particularly fine publication that offers an erudite and balance view on many political issues.

The Daily Sport is a good choice if you are interested in international economics.

This OP.

Also if you like Al Jazeera, then try RT or the Daily Mail. Also if you want political commentary or international affairs, then the Daily Star is a good shout.

Comparing BBC & RT as equal is as stupid as comparing the theory of evolution and creationism as two competing theories.

RT is full of conspiracy wing nuts. Press TV, RT and the Chinese one are all 100% propaganda. There is no accountability, independent trust like with the BBC
