Are these objective or at least less biased sources of news?

There is a lot of dismissing of links to published news sources on this site along with claims of bias pointing both directions.  Attached claims to be a list of sources holding to ethical standards which still embrace objectivity?  Are they right?  And are some better than others?  https://soapboxie.com/social-issues/A-Real-Need-for-the-Real-News

And if you don't consider any of these reasonable sources then can you propose some we can consider (other than obtaining every original transcript or videotape somehow and stating our opinion solely from that)?

Kind of old but still relevant, here is a bit on how people feel about their news sources. Some less newsy sources are included as well. You can see how groups of people answered the poll and see what news sources are used by those groups. This is not a take on quality of news source but on public perception and use.

Interestingly enough, but not surprising, is that the fewer news sources one uses the more polarizing the respondent is. That is the more conservative a person is for instance the fewer news sources they use, basically just frequent echo chambers.

So sure there are more objective and less biased sources; however for more objectivity one should peruse many news sources and make decisions off of more information to avoid echo chambers outlined above. Comparing and contrasting the same subject from different sources can also help people recognize things their the implicit biases make difficult for them to see, like loaded language.

I'll scratch my head on that one and take the time to read it but before I do I fall on the standing that it would be improbable for a news source to be fully objective, it may be less biased but it's up to the reader to get information and form an opinion from multiple sources of different angles or at the very least, recognize that their main source of information will have some (or a lot) of bias. Ex. I love Jon Stewart but he is definitely left. Fox falls heavily on the right. I don't really know if there is a news source that can claim full impartiality on left or right media.

It's actually good to know that some of the sites I'll hang my hat on are on the list, such as WorldNews, The Guardian, FactCheck. I do think they are a tad more objective but again it falls on people to read multiple sources to get different angles and this article gives me some sites to reference, thank you.

There is no real American news. If you want the real news you go to foreign news sources. What do you see? Right this minute, much of the world sees our current administration as a terrorist organization and? We are about to have a nucleur standoff with Russia. The liberal news in America is known worldwide for news blackouts.

Egypt's government and media accused Obama of conspiracy with terrorists. Google it. So did Turkey. Your Muslim and chief left the weapons behind in Iraq that are being used by ISIS today.
