  • Does any major US News outlet just report the news?

    Is there any news outlet in the USA which just reports the news without editoralising it?

    Fox sets that standard for reporting with very little fact and lots of nut-job hyperbole but CNN etc aren't that far behind. What about just presenting the facts, do any of them do that anymore?
    I find it incredible that I get more fact based reporting from Al Jazeera than any of the American based cable news channels.

    I think this captures it quite well

    AP: Dateline San Francisco, CA, 6:58 AM
    The sun rose today.

    Reuters - Paris: 6:58 AM The sun came up this morning.

    NPR: The sun came up today, just like it has every day since the Earth was formed. This is Laxshmi Singh, NPR News, Washington.

    CNN: This is Anderson Cooper. The sun came up today, and here is a clip of Donald Trump lying about it.

    Fox : Senate Democrats today tried to prevent the sun from rising, but Paul Ryan and Donald Trump grabbed it and lifted it above their heads until it rose by its own bootstraps and burnt many illegal aliens.

    The Washington Post: Set of well researched stories about how Trump and his family tried to collude with clouds to block the sun except over Mar-A-Lago.

    Redstate: Trump created the sun.

        I tend to discount much news. This is more important. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8HY6LA7fck

            I don’t watch Fox, but do wonder why some people see it as such a problem.
            If Fox actually is as bad as the left likes to believe, it is still just one cable news station.
            It stands out because it doesn’t give us the same propaganda all of the major broadcast networks and cable news stations give us.

            The MSM is as guilty of spin as anything we may see from Fox and they have far more reach than Fox ever will.
            In the past week, I have seen extensive MSM reporting on “so called” heart beat bills. Obviously, the phrasing is designed to cast the “heart beat bills” in a negative light.
            Chicago had 31 people shot this weekend. That is called “gun violence”, rather than “Gang violence”.
            Any report on Trump’s immigration policies requires an interview with a single mom. I have never seen a report on immigration that mentions crime victims of illegal aliens. If I relied on the MSM for that information, I would have to assume illegals never engage in crime.
            This morning’s CBS Chicago news had a report on an effort to remove Illinois’s “restrictive” abortion laws.
            Later in the report, it became clear that the only thing actually restricted was “partial birth abortions”.

            Propaganda in any form from the media should offend, and while Fox may do it too, it is difficult to see one cable station as the biggest threat.

                From what I've seen, MSNBC is the almost counterfactual, all opinion "news" station. They rarely put on anyone that is adverse to their position unless it is to attack them. Their usual MO is to put on "experts" from sources that are in lockstep with their own views such as CNN, the WaPo, NYT, or a magazine like Time.
                CNN is horrid in that it actually makes up news in addition to a massively, and often openly, slanted view favoring the Democrats.
                FOX isn't great, but at least they usually try to put on one adverse view to their own as a token rebuttal position.
                Watching any of them is largely an exercise in wasting your time.

                BBC International is largely news still...

                    OAN is perhaps as good as it gets these days. https://www.oann.com/

                    When al Jazeera was still available it was by far the bet of them all.

                        It says something when an Arab news source is more balanced than most American ones.
                        I haven't tries OAN but I will, thanks.

                            The International version is more like:

                            And now a number of actual news stories from places you've never heard of and will never go to that we at the BBC have zero political interest in so we can accurately report them to you as our management doesn't care about any of it...

                              https://reason.com/ is the only news source I like and trust.

                              But, they're not a major media outlet, so I guess the answer to your question is no.
