I know some don't trust the BBC or Sky news.

I admit that I'm a shameful Daily Mail (online) reader. But take a barrel of salt with whatever I read. Other than that I only really watch the headlines on BBC and get a lot of info from news posts on Fb hmm

Where do you read or watch?

BBC for government updates
BMJ for scientific data

I think it’s prudent to get your news from a range of sources though, and learn to think critically!
Check sources, who actually said what, what language do they use, what studies do they cite, if any?

Also, I found this website:

mediabiasfactcheck.com/

But ironically, haven’t had chance to check it’s authenticity smile

By language - I mean sensationalised or not.. not English or not

Sky News Australia, completely different tone to other news channels.
Sam Vaknin on you tube
UK Column News on you tube.
I dont trust the mainstream TV news at all.

WHO although I think they are a bit slow to confirm things, I guess trying to be overly cautious.

BBC don't completely trust but concise.
