I stopped watching what the networks and cable called news years ago.
Just watched my local station's local news.
Well, last night their news cast was interrupted by some yoyo standing at a podium answering softball questions.
Hope this is not the new norm.
I like The Epoch Times. I find it an excellent source of real news. Here is a link:

Every news outlet has a certain bias.

The reason why we have FOUR gospels is because its from four different sources representing the four corners of the world, NEWS comes from North, East, West and South.

so you ought to have at least four channels or sources of news to get a complete picture. Dont just rely on one source to tell you.

in today's world, unless The Holy Spirit leads you to those who have the Truth directly from our Heavenly Father,
then it isn't really any kind of real/truthful news at all, just worldly babbling from bable...

I have found that all news is always biased.

There's political agendas with all of them.
False dichotomies are set up to divert from the truth.
Kinda like the gun control debate.
Sure, both sides have truth to them but the sad fact is most gun related deaths and injuries are self inflicted. Both sides ignore the larger truth and it goes ignored. Same thing with the news media.

"Dog bites man" is not news...too common
"Man bites dog" is considered newsworthy.

It's all about targeting a specific demographic to tell them what they want to hear so they will flock to you so that you can sell advertising that wants to sell to that demographic.

Think in terms of feminine hygiene vs shaving cream vs toys.

What targeted group do you want to sell these products to...how can you tailor your news towards to attracting the viewership needed to sell these products?

Gospel according to Luke is my favourite.

Though the other three are pretty good sources, Lukes has the exclusive details about Jesus nativity.

The source you suggested has an obvious agenda---Anti Trump.
But so does every source mentioned---
Either anti trump or anti Bidden.
whether an article provides information that is favorable or unfavorable toward a worldly political figure is a stupid way to determine whether that source has a biased agenda.

After four years of hate-filled propaganda from the mainstream media (which continues to this day) your remark is hypocritical at best, and self-serving at worst.

There are at least two-dozen conservative news sources that do not twist everything to fit a pre-planned agenda. They provide actual news and at the same time expose the hatred and violence of the Leftists.

The American media are worse than Pravda in its heyday. At least Pravda did not pretend that it was anything other than the propaganda mouthpiece of the Soviet Union. But CNN, NBC, ABC, CBC, BBC, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the National Review, the Boston Globe, and many others pretend that they are reporting news, when in fact they are spreading propaganda and BS. Even AP and Reuters are no better than propagandists Time, Newsweek, etc.
