    Now a days it's safe to say that the news is everywhere. In shopping centers stands, tvs at the gym, internet, and even in schools. The news is a means of knowing what is happening in the world. And unless you are a 'ignorance is bliss' kinda guy, you sure like to keep informed.

    That being said, you can't really believe everything that is told.news can be full of biased opinions and straight lies.

    Now my question is; where do you guys get your news from? CNN, Fox, the war room?

    Discuss. Could be helpful.

    The reason why I ask guys, is because I live in the US and our major news media outlets tend to feed us a lot of bullshit. Seriously!

    I would usually turn to CNN and yahoo but as of late, CNN feels just as biased as fox or msnbc. Maybe I'm wrong. But what do I know? That's why I made this thread.

    What are good sources for news?

    It's good to read two different websites on the opposite ends of the spectrum. You know, to get two biased opinions so you can form one in the middle.

    I heard they got bought out by an American company. Wouldn't that just make it "Arab CNN"?
