    Is your memory really that short? It was even quoted.
    Did you read the last sentence in the post I quoted.

    Do I need to give you the large print version?

    There are generally centered news sources.

    Is that better?

    List some. So we'll know what is pre-approved. TIA.

    ... In large print for you as well.

    Again, for your ADHD.... If you're excluding Left AND Right... What to you, remains?

    Please enlighten us as to what you believe is a "Neutral Unbiased News Source"

    The last sentence in your Post was "QUOTED!"

    Here are examples of a few charts that describe news "biasing".

    There are several others. But the average of these charts should be pretty similar. I try to avoid news sources on the right or left. During a breaking story or major news I try to get several news sources in making determinations. If we want to say CNN is fake news (and I agree they tend to report the news with a left spin), we must also say in the same sentence that Faux news is also fake.

    But, as I've said again, many here post from the far right, which is disturbing, but not really surprising.

    I'm really fascinated by this now... According to YOUR post and provided source quoted above:

    You believe that NPR, PBS, NYT, WaPo, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, Reuters and AlJezeera are unbiased, "Minimal Partisan" news sources?

    So according to you, you can only be on the right or left, there is no in-between. You had been inferring this all along during this discussion, but I never actually thought you really think like this..... :)

    Again, I said

    "Here are examples of a few charts that describe news "biasing"."

    also be sure to re-read for comprehension what I also said in that post.....

    "I try to avoid news sources on the right or left. During a breaking story or major news I try to get several news sources in making determinations."

    The only source in your links that actually attempts to put their personal politics aside and report fact only is C-Span.

    But to directly answer... Yes. You WILL NOT get "unbiased reporting" from anywhere on that listing you provided. You will get the spin.

    My actual personal politics, I tend to enjoy Fox more than others as they actually give libertarian perspectives a voice, where your "unbiased" sources on those lists do not. Nor do they provide any right balance for most of their air time. While I acknowledge that Fox leans to the right of the spectrum, they DO in all fairness provide leftist voices opportunity as well where the others rarely offer opposing viewpoints.
