Political News Sources

Political news sources

It’s definitely not easy identifying accurate information — in that hypothetical journey to find sources of credible news. It’s very easy to find bogus news wrapped up in special effects with high entertainment value and a high budget intended to help sell something (products, war, etc.) rather than inform. The challenge is putting aside those. In fact, I keep deleting a lot of RSS feeds of sites that I no longer trust, either because they sold out to a political party, changed hands, or accepted some rich donor who is likely to change the agenda/tune. These things change over time. It happens. So lists can be out of date. The feeds at the top are some among those that survived scrutiny for years and can mostly be trusted as independent and worth following. The names above are abbreviated for personal reasons of convenience and ordering, but among them (less cryptic): EFF, ACLU, Alternet, Truthout, Common Dreams, Consortium News, CounterPunch, Craig Murray, Democracy Now, FAIR, Project Censored, The Intercept, NOAA, Open Democracy, Open Rights Group, John Pilger, Pirate Party, Propublica, TruthDig and We Meant Well. There are of course many others, but the above is already too much to exhaustively follow (I’m well behind on most of them, as the screenshot hints).
