Who the hell watches news with a bunch of bias in it? Even your local news is a turd.

I'd actually rebut this if you weren't a fucking idiot that I rather just insult than even try to have a meaningful conversation.

>Implying there's any news source without bias.

It's not the bias that's the worst part in American news (that's there everywhere in the world), it's the increased focus on celebrity tabloid style reports and "infotainment". In other words pretty irrelevant crap.

Not concerning Poland, Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Iran, Turkey, and lately Germany and Cyprus. Just at the top of my head, there's more. Those are all countries where the Kremlin has interest to present them as far better or worse than they really are.

They'll report stuff US and UK media wouldn't touch, and are very critical of US and UK administrations which is probably why you're fond of them. But to say they're objective for all things not Russia is untrue.

As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

As I said, no such thing. The thing I learned when studying International Relations at the university, if a country is small and insignificant its media will focus almost entirely on it's own backyard and cite big media like MSNBC, BBC, France 2 or ZDF almost verbatim for whenever there's something global to report. If a country is important and significant, state or private interests will influence reporting.

Polish media loves fracking, Germany's media presents it as the worst thing ever.

Read/watch media with different interests and views on the same subject to keep a decent overview, no such thing as least biased media, it changes from story to story.

13 out of 13. However after clicking my answer I waited for it to go to the next question almost every time before going to click the next question button that I knew was there.
