Where do a lot of erbber's get their news from

Not gonna lie , I have not really been a fan of politics or the news in general ( just do me ) but lately its coming at me from every possible angle .

It seams that the media is crazy and feed you the same news just from different peoples crazy opinions .

Do fact / statistic based news sources exist ? News that does not have a political agenda?

I don’t think there’s any agenda free news unfortunately

best to read a variety of sources across the political spectrum

the things they report in common are most likely closest to the truth

but you have to wade through a lot of BS and there is an innate human tendency to only want to read those who reaffirm your existing assumptions

or you could just read erbb politics, in which you will receive only the most extreme and deranged perspectives :)

There is no journalism. Only activism.
I don't get too into it because you don't know what's true or not anymore.

For every story there is a counter story.

Trump eliminated the pandemic response team.

No he didn't. He fired the leadership team.

Trump mishandled the crisis.

The states mishandled the crisis.

There are no good news sources and few trust the ones that exist.

The best things I've found are the interviews with actual scientists (Dr. Brix is good, Dr. Levitt, Dr. Ioannidis) and those familiar with data with training logic, math and statistics.

The news has every financial incentive to create hysteria to drive up page views. Their share of ad revenue has been shrinking versus Google and Facebook for a long time.

Lack of good news is a big problem no one knows how to solve. The best thing you can do is train yourself how to think

I agree with G for most scenarios. I've travelled for a week or two, kept my head in the sand and nothing changes. News is mostly a vessel for companies to promote there agenda. There is some "truth" but mostly it the the political angle of the station. Try to balance fox and CNN, obtain new from different sources. I like to look to BBC, NPR and al-jezzeria to see different viewpoints of the same thing.

Most daily news doesn't matter or affect our lives at all. The best news to read is probably your local paper.
