    Default Most trusted news sources

    Not the most 'accurate' by some objective measure... but most 'trusted' --

    I trust PBS, that's about it.
    Keep calm, persistence beats resistance.

    You're not alone.

    But what about The Guardian, The Wall St. Journal (news, not editorial), BBC, Reuters, and The Economist? Oh and Christian Science Moniter... they're not on the list, but right up there, I'd suspect.

    The only bit that surprises me is that Yahoo is ranked so low. I find them largely reliable... even if a bit 'click-bait' oriented.

    The Bilge is clear off the charts, it seems.

    I'm seeing the Guardian, the BBC and Reuters in the most trusted section. I've always been happy with the Beeb.

    "SOME readers, particularly those used to the left-right split in most democratic legislatures, are bamboozled by The Economistís political stance. We like free enterprise and tend to favour deregulation and [sic. privatisation] But we also like gay marriage, want to legalise drugs and disapprove of monarchy"
    The Economist

    Privitization and deregulation are going to hurt this country more than any of the the other recent "hot button" political issues. I think equating The Economist as a trusted news source is a serious mistake.
    Corporate power is completely run amok, private prisons, a move is afoot towards a private military, the presidency and much of congress is now corrupted by this line of thinking. This is only one click away from Fascism, and bamboozled is indeed the operative word.

    And in which direction remains an open question, eh?

    As the WSJ highlights... the editorial side of an operation can be quite distinct from the news reporting side.
