Finally, if you’re looking for a non-biased source of news, my friend Nathan (who helped found it) reports that “News and News just received kudos from MBFC, an independent media watchdog. With more than 2,900 news sources in its database, MBFC rates outlets based on bias in wording and headlines, story choice, the extent to which reporting is factual, and evident political leanings. Universities and libraries rely on MBFC to vet news sources for recommendation. Please help get the word out.”
