  • BBC News
  • Al Jazeera
  • Reuters
  • The Economist
  • The Wall Street Journal
  • The New York Times
  • The Financial Times
  • The Diplomat
  • South China Morning Post
  • The website of the Council on Foreign Relations (https://www.cfr.org)

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.
