    news*
    Reuters, BBC

    But personally, I think you should combine left-wing and right-wing news sources if you want controversial news stories too, e.g. the Guardian and the Daily Mail

    And I would also look at www.reddit.com/r/worldnews and www.reddit.com/r/uncensorednews, since they are user contributed and span a wider political spectrum

    I can't stand the Guardian. But I see where you are coming from.

    I'll take a look at those websites, thanks.

    Hint: for the Guardian, just read the comments. They are much, much more interesting than the long-winded, lecturing, pompous opinion pieces.

    Many are written by Russian trolls

    As others of said "least biased newspaper* does not really exist. If you only have time for one thing then probably the BBC but here's where I get mine - and this has taken some time to perfect.

    BBC
    Guardian
    The Spectator
    New Statesman
    Twitter
    FT & Times are really good but v costly

    (They all do podcasts which is a good way of getting news)
    Hard to find pro corbyn voices which why I try and speak to a few pro corbyns on here.

    I don't trust any of the mainstream media. The Guardian should be renamed to the Guardian of Zion.
