Online News Sources


News can be print, online, podcast, blogs, images, and even your friends. Here are some of the most popular news sites. 

Social media feeds you news. Be aware of selective exposure because algorithms determine which information you see. The BBC is a great place to get your news, but has not been free from complaints of media bias on certain topics Al Jazeera covers the news in English and Arabic, but has been accused of media bias and state interference
The Wall Street Journal is owned by a company with a conservative bias which can be seen in the editorials and opinion pages.  The Financial Times editor has discussed attempts at objectivity by journalists, but admits it can be difficult.  CNN has been subject to allegations of attempting to influence viewers, as opposed to an unbiased approach to political journalism
