    Alternative news sites

    Hey guys,
    This is not reaalllyy political but I thought with the recent displays over our media supporting certain govterment agendas that I would post some alternative news sources that may prove a little more trustworthy and possibly even encouraging to some.

    https://www.whaleoil.co.nz
    https://www.dailywire.com
    https://www.rightminds.nz
    https://www.therebel.media
    https://www.foxnews.com

    Let me know what y’all think. I was given these links recently and I have been feeling a whole lot better about things. It’s good to see some honest reporting.

    Not an alternate news site but I quite enjoy Sargon of Akkad and Paul Joseph Watson channels on YouTube. Black Pigeon Speaks and Styxenhammer666 are also worthy viewing IMO.

    I’m also looking for an alternative news source, preferably NZ-based. Call me old fashioned, but I don’t want to replace left wing, “social justice”, agenda-driven news with right wing agenda-driven news. I just want impartial, honest reporting. Is that too much to ask for?

    I asked much the same question a few months ago. Haven't found anything without a bias yet.

    Its either the Loony Left or the Rabid Right. SMH.

    I think the most important thing to do far beyond which news source you use is think critically and be aware of your own biases. Seek facts not simply confirmation of your own opinion and then learn the difference between news and opinion and read articles for the news and ignore the opinion.
