The growing concern of news sources being censored in the modern-day society is something that should be a thing of concern to whoever is waiting for unbiased world news.
This is a world where money seems to have such control over journalistic integrity. Are there no unbiased world news sources you can turn to anymore? The short answer is an emphatic yes.
When it comes to “censorship,” news is censored either by the overreach of government entities or by a corporate stranglehold on the editorial processes of news organizations.
1. The Associated Press
The Associated Press was founded in 1846. The renowned global news organization has 53 Pulitzer Prizes under its belt. It is and has always been the epitome of clear and unbiased news journalism and reporting. It is actually where most journalists seek out their own news stories to report on.
2. Wall Street Journal
Wall Street Journal is well known for reporting the news as it is. It serves a healthy dose of reality from both sides of the political spectrum.
It isn’t likely you’ll see a Wall Street Journal White House correspondent trading blows with the President in the Press Room. The reason for this isn’t because WSJ loves our current president. It’s because you won’t often find antagonistic stories on the front page that are lambasting either side.
a. Contrast with Fox News and CNN
You can contrast the WSJ with Fox News, a site with a strong bias toward the right, and CNN, a site with a strong bias toward the left.
Reuters is a well-respected unbiased news outlet with a strong focus on clean, accurate reporting. News events on this site are written with some of the most straightforward reporting seen anywhere. World stories on controversial hot-topics like the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Brexit, or various government elections, don’t appear to take one side or another. Headlines cover insights from every end of the spectrum.
This is especially refreshing at a time when this kind of journalistic, unbiased news reporting is so rare.
The BBC is the world’s oldest national broadcasting service and one of the largest world news services. If you want to know what’s going on in the world, the BBC is the place to go. There is a good chance you will find better information than the same stories at a US news site.
