    They might still be useful albeit imperfect.  What did you find insufficient to your taste and standards?

    The WSJ attempted to paint YouTuber PewDiePie as a racist and the NYT gave Hillary Clinton their official endorsement during the 2016 election cycle.

    Never trust in just one source. A good practice is use all of them and then draw your own conclusions. The more sources you have the better your conclusions are.
