Like I say. There's nobody who is not being lied to by the media.

That you think you have some elevated position by "not watching Fox" only shows how deluded you are.
Of course it's elevated by not watching Fox. You'd have to be deluded to think otherwise.

Oh. You think people have an "elevated position" because they cut off news sources in an environment where "at least they have a variety."

You're a bundle of contradictions.

As this thread seems to have forgotten about Ukraine, (OP), has anyone heard anymore from them lately?
It seems to be a news-blackout-zone since the surrender of the Azov battalion.
I am hoping it is because the free-world supplied arms are starting to roll in and make a difference.
That and the fact the Russians are probably watching everything aired by all the reporters once broadcasting from the Ukrainian countryside.
I know I saw things the Russians were sure to acknowledge.
For instance...Early in the assault on Kiev, we often saw the satellite images of the roads lined with Russian vehicles.
After a couple of weeks, the vehicles disappeared under the trees.
Had that info not been aired, those roads would have remained choked with targets.
Perhaps "military" minds have awakened.

Depends on what the subject matter is but where it comes to war coverage then the BBC is a first port of call. I've followed the likes of veteran war correspondents such as John Simpson & Jeremy Bowen for years.
I start with CNN, knowing full well they electioneer for Democrats, but that doesn't completely obscure the . . . news. The headlines. What's happening around the world, that's new. Put a bunch of new's together, and it's news. What's news? What's new. (False etymology right there, to be clear.)

CNN basically reports all the news that's worth being on most news outlets' front pages. I also look at the New York Times, just the headlines. Whenever I do this I see what CNN already told me, so NYT corroborates that CNN isn't blowing smoke.

But NYT also electioneers for the Dems, and I know this full well. Particularly the columns, opinions and editorials on NYT, and all other links, clearly indicate it is homebase for Dems.

And when I click to the Wall Street Journal (before it 'cookie-crashes' their webpage) I see the same headlines there as I see in CNN and NYT. WSJ electioneers for Republicans.

The headlines are unanimous. They are bipartisan. They are a supermajority. All the serious, professional journalists report the news, the headlines, the new's of the day. They slant, they spin, they rhetorically explain and they tell their narratives, but you can see through that, to the actual news.

Now that's fair enough and a similar method to what I do where it comes to corroborating news albeit with differing outlets.
