How Do You Determine Which News is Actual News?

The news today has been skewed and people don't know who to trust or what news to follow. I took the time to research and ask the questions I feel people should ask when looking for accurate information about what is news.

NEWS 101

I finally found the answer to my question of: where do you find 'unbiased news' if you believe that regular news is biased and controlled by liberals, the elite and Goege Soros?


Goerge Soros is considered to be the problem because he contributes huge sums of money to liberal agendas

Public Radio = NPR
Public radio is considered to have a liberal slant

Biased news plagued the 2016 campaign between Donald Trump-elect and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Social Media was reeling with articles from so many websites, the average laymen couldn't make heads nor tails of whether they were reading the actual news or just blog sites. The problem was so pervasive that it literally slanted the way people felt about legitimate news sites and created a very unhealthy distrust of the news altogether. 

After the elections, I went on a quest to determine who owned the media dispensing 'the so-called news' and discovered some interesting pieces of information about them. 

I read an article published by the Huffington Post that really went in depth when it came to the mentality of our audiences today. We are used to getting by without actually reading the content we are 'liking' on social media. We have a tendency to 'believe the headline' without ever really reading the content. 

As demonstrated with  this article titled:

Another thing I discovered, was all sites presenting themselves as news weren't actually news at all. Some of them were blog-sites just like this one where anyone can create content and you just can't trust what the intention of a blogger is. Its just the truth.

The next thing I learned is to define the word news:

Full Definition of news

  1. 1a :  a report of recent eventsb :  previously unknown information <I've got news for you>c :  something having a specified influence or effect <the rain was good news for lawns and gardens — Garrison Keillor> <the virus was bad news>
  2. 2a :  material reported in a newspaper or news periodical or on a newscastb :  matter that is newsworthy
  3. 3:  newscast


 play \-ləs\ adjective

Even the definition of news does not include that it must be fact.

The last thing I did was just Google who owned the websites that a Republican friend of mine was reading and posted it on my Facebook page. 

This particular publication is considered to be liberal media:
This publication is a German-owned American publication that sponsors technology

2) The Strategic Culture - THAT SITE IS NO LONGER ACTIVE

It was a right wing media source and according to my Facebook post on November 14, 2016:

3) RT is another right wing news source

Who owns rt.com?

4) The Gateway Pundit 


Now for the Liberal News Sources

Who owns The Huffingont Post?

Who owns MSNBC?

Who Owns CNN?

I had to include an update to this and add the additional news source of Wiki Leaks. What is Wiki Leaks. Well....

It is truly up to you to draw your own conclusions about the information being presented to you. A good way to guide yourself through this maze of misinformation is to #1 look for references and links. A lot of the time, reputable news sources are going to refer you (through links) to their sources. Blogs have no obligation to let you know where they got their information from. #2 We all took 'comprehension' in school. Use those skills to determine if something even makes sense. #3 We have to cross-reference our information. If its not on all of the news then its probably NOT NEWS. #4 If it has a slant that is liberal or conservative then I would BEWARE. It's just not worth digesting misinformation. Its just not Kosher.

I hope you learned something today. My mission is to inspire people to search for the TRUTH!!!!
