In the question, I'm asking for recommendations of news sources that are unbiased. Additionally, I'm inviting stackers to provide specific instances or examples that demonstrate the reliability and lack of bias of the suggested news sources. The aim is to encourage stackers to support their recommendations with real-world examples, fostering a discussion on trustworthy and impartial news outlets.

This is an important set of questions. I apologize in advance for doing them a disservice.
Firstly, I don't think the framing is quite right. There are no unbiased news sources, but there are people who make more of an effort at honesty and self correction. Bias is the tendency to make errors in a particular direction and we are all hardwired to have various biases.
Given my position on bias, what I try to do is follow a variety of sources who are not likely to all make the same errors, because they come from different perspectives. I believe everyone I list here ended up being good at sniffing out Covid propaganda, despite some getting there faster than others.
Here are some people I think are generally honest actors Progressive/left: Kim Iversen, Krystal Ball, Jimmy Dore, Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi, Aron Mate
Conservative/right: Tim Pool, Sagar Enjeti
Libertarian/ancap: Dave Smith, Robby Bernstein, Scott Horton

God damn it dude, you have made all the points that I came here to make.
reply
that's akin to selecting what suits you best.
while considerable efforts are underway for free speech and other progressive matters, there is limited focus on establishing a globally unbiased and reliable news source.
people can be easily manipulated with the propagation of biased news, and this is currently happening worldwide during every significant events.
reply
Again, it's not possible for human beings to be unbiased. The important thing is to have a news diet that is going to correct the biases of each source.
It's really not about what suits me best, except in the sense that I'm looking for sources that are reliably honest and that come from a variety of perspectives.

how can you make such a vague statement representing whole human beings, i strongly disagree to that statement that human beings cannot be unbiased. there are people who are only biased to truth and humane actions. there are people who doesn't stand with anything other than their self intuitions and decisions.
i correct it, like human beings can be unbiased when considering each one individually, while in a group it may not be possible to be unbiased. eg. thinking as a member of a state or country, or being in a religion or being in a cult organization.
and here comes the manipulation that we face everyday imposing their biased views upon us or more specifically me who is not willing to be biased by any of such group's biased views and i can by grace, be able to follow my inner conversation and wits on every matter that is coming in front of me. while there are people who blindly follow such biased views and carry that in their day to day engagements and duties which affects many who are not meant to be treated like that.
there are many millions around the world who doesn't want to be in any group but to be as in one when it comes to human beings. and thats which is more aligned with the bitcoin vision.

i know this is a very difficult initiative just like everything that is underway, but i am sharing my concerns here on the least efforts made on this matter as this is the thing that is driving us now on every global events, there needs to be more efforts and extreme care should be taken on this matter as groups of people with money, manpower and political power can do anything they want and silence all others who are opposing them by transmitting only what they need people to know to the people who otherwise will oppose their doings if truth is provided to them.
those people are using this information technology for their benefits, why can't we use the same technology to offend this.
take the case of lbry (was a very bold move) as you may know which is silenced by the government, is around beacuse it is completely decentralized, take the case of Julian Assange and many more.
there is nostr, but such initiatives have to come mainstream, there are people who are still not convinced themselves to use Bitcoin but everyone is using the internet.
or is it still not the time people get organized regardless of country, religion, ethnicity, race and all that factors and provide people with information which is good for mankind.
tired of this bullshit, i am not anti government or anti leadership or anti democratic or anti anything now which has powers, i am against the false information they are spreading through out the world to hide their inhumane acts in plain site or their utterly stupid actions against the whole mankind for their short term benefits.
i know the future is bright ahead that this utter nonsense will not go on forever as powerful individuals will emerge in future but we can make them their efforts easy by doing whats needed now itself.
reply
how can you make such a vague statement representing whole human beings
My familiarity with cognitive bias research leads me to that conclusion about human beings, in general.
I am someone who cares deeply about the truth and I have no other allegiance, but that doesn't make me impervious to cognitive biases. We can take steps to guard against and correct our biases, but there's no known way to not have any.
reply
You can make a stronger statement. It's not that people fall short of the perfect standard of being unbiased because of some property of brains. It's that there is literally no unbiased perspective to be had in the world.
Everything, even the most fundamental and primitive sensory details of the world, are crucially dependent on individual perspective. They do not exist without it.
reply
Indeed. I wasn't thinking about it this way, but you're right. I was thinking about the ways in which we bias the information that we receive.
However, the information we receive is heavily biased by virtue of being heavily selected by our environment.
reply
yes the human beings are biased to truth, harmony, self esteem, hoping best for others and all the good things, by their basic human nature,
thats the human nature while they can be easily manipulated with the tools like internet, television, radio and the printed media, which they are not even aware of. they are being delivered information on utter nonsense acts covered in such goodness that those perpetrators are doing good, else no one will accept any of such acts as you know or can think. i can assure you that most people will only stand with good no matter how much biased is their views on certain matters. so if they can rely on something for truths or is provided with information on all the inhumane activities underway around the world where people with powers are torturing people with less powers mentally, physically, socially, financially and all other inhumane ways, which is pulling back the evolution of the mankind to be a better society, in time. even the people that are directly affected are being fed with manipulated information that they are doing good to them.
those perpetrators are exploiting the nature at its peak and is hiding the extreme threat of 'global climate change extent' with their false humanitarian efforts they are doing with the help of united nations and such organizations, just think of the simple question, why are they running such campaigns while they can simply halt the deforestation and environment harassment with the power they already have in hand.
the temperature over the ocean bed around the world has gone up so wild that in the coming years natural disaster events will be doubled like hurricanes, tornados, floods etc.. while the general public are not even aware of the fact that, they are in imminent danger for their well being. i am not blabbering like few conspiracy theorists do, the temperature rise in ocean bed is a fact that has come to a stage that cannot be hidden anymore. those matters are not spoken in public or that information is not being circulated widely. the irony is that if the general population is provided with such informations freely and the manipulating tools be used wisely they will stop those people from doing what all harms they are continuing in doing in no time and we can make the concept of balanced use of nature and its resources real and make these climate changes revert in time. but think of that few people around the world who for their own good and short term benefits with their utter stupidity and lack of vision are driving the efficient and innocent masses to their sufferings.
it is that our children who are going to suffer in their lifetime. i am not being rude, still we can support them by giving and spreading right information that the government or corporates are not willing to spread. we need better and reliable tools for that.
and for your comment, i can assure you that i will be or anyone will be biased as a father or a mother for their children ie at the lowest level everyone is biased for their family, while majority have brighter view for the human kind to be in good and always be in good. because the mankind is still very early to be extinct resulting in their own acts.
we all will think of such hardships will not come to our doorsteps untill it do, and while we can use these tools we have in hand for spreading the right information to people and lead them to the better future.
so still, dont clinch to the fact that everything is biased and humans can't be unbiased and provide people with right information and make the general people vigilantes and guardians who will not let those few stupid people who are there everywhere play their stupidity upon everything and everyone.
in short to be clear, american elections and candidates are on the headlines, spacex and space explorations and extra terrestrial nonsense is in the headlines, new and new films and serieses are there in the headlines with its success and box office collections, war is in some headlines, political leaders visits abroad is in headlines...... etc..
why the fact that there are people eating just mud mixed in water for breakfast, lunch and supper, yes i meant mud are living in the outskirts African continent is not there in the headlines, why the fact that the global climate change has became an extreme threat to human species is not there in the headlines, why the rapid space rocket launches has ruined the atmospheric barrier more than that of other pollutions in last few years is not in headlines, why the largest of one of the floating glaciers has started melting and is flowing to mainland is not in headlines, why many super powers without knowing the consequences at that time, has done terrible things to the environment and is keeping that as national secrets are not in headlines, why the fact that we can overcome climate change and pollution effects by planting more trees and making more forests in government lands and private lands is not in headlines, why some big pharma companies are still selling their potentially outdated and outperforming drugs while some cheap and efficient medicines had been developed is not in headlines, why the global temperature is raising rapidly comparing to last many years is not in headlines, why the money spend for US election campaigns is sufficient for building a poor country economically in Africa is not in headlines, why the electric vehicles and the hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are fully developed but still not marketed efficiently and is held back eying the fossil fuel trade profits while they can and is fueling the global warming is still not in headlines etc..
think rest out.....

Does't exist. Seek out opposing views on the same topic. One red feed, one blue feed, one orange feed. Read even the stuff you deeply disagree with. The most unbiased view is having heard all the biased views.
reply
Actually it does.exist. Just you guys on the conversative right think anything that challenges your rhetoric is fake news and "liberal mainstream media." Sorry, but when the facts and data and statistics show that what you believe is wrong/untrue, then that's the truth. Data and statistics.dont have opinions.
If you want a truly unbiased viewpoint on global news try Al.Jazeera English/America. They have a reporter inside Gaza as well, one of a very few that do. They've been rated in the middle in terms of bias time and time again because they only report.the facts of the matter. They've been great on showing what's really going on in gaza and how Israel is knowingly committing genocide. Don't let the Arabic in the name.scare you..
reply
I don't see myself as conservative right. I'm pretty liberal on all social issues and neoliberal on economic issues. (I'm a "woke capitalist" unironically)
Btw the data and statistics are overwhelmingly on the side of neoliberalism.
And Al Jazeera is pretty biased, it's literally a state-run media. For more objective news I'd rather consider like Bloomber, Wallstreetjournal or the BBC. But as I said: by a far margin the best you can do IMO is look at all sides. Look at far left and far right media and form your own opinions.

Recognizing the need for reliable news, one idea is a platform using Bitcoin Lightning Protocol to rate news articles for bias and trust. eg. stacker.news. However, it faces challenges due to the substantial manpower required to manage and verify news content.

The issue is, those on the conservative right are so far gone they actually believe their right wing propaganda networks that have been rated extremely right leaning on independent studies regarding bias are still unbais.and the real news. When I watch left leaning networks, I'm aware I'm getting a bit of a spin on the news and do my own research when needed. Even though I lean about as far.left politically as you can possibly get. When those.on the right watch fox news, oan, newsmax, ect, they think they're getting the truth about the issues and can't identify that they're being spun.

great information, 👍 👌

I don't believe in the idea of "unbiased" news source.

Al Jazeera America/English. They report the facts and their coverage of what's truly going on in the Gaza strip is unmatched because they are the only news network you can watch in the US that actually has a reporter inside Gaza. You can watch them free on YouTube 24/7 live.
