FOX NEWS is on the right and a conservative news site. They have gone more center over the years on some things but they are still firmly on the right. It's harder to fault them then others of the main street media because (and only because) they came into existence to counter the left leaning media. They freely say they are conservative where as CBS and ABC and CNN try to pull the wool over peoples eyes and say they in the center. FOX does say they are balanced which is questionable in that they are on the right, but they do say they are conservative and that's what they are. I respect them in that they don't try and fool people and say they are in the center like CBS, CNN, ABC or MSNBC does. They can be sensationalists at times but close to that of CNN. If you look at the mirror opposite of them it would be CBS on the left. FOX NEWS has been more factual then CBS or ABC in their reporting the past couple of years. Reading FOX NEWS is a good way to at least try and understand the opinions of half the country. Half of America doesn't believe the MSM and they want a news source that reflects more closely to their personal beliefs. As always read many sites to get a well balanced view.

Techdirt is a different type of site more looking into laws and background info in the tech world. I don't always agree with the views but that's not a bad thing because if you always agree it means your a sheep with no thinking ability. They can become political at times which is kind of hand in hand when discussing law but can become too much at times. I land on the site around 2-3 times a week.

In a world of politics ruining even tech sites, I can say this site is holding true to being a good tech site. I've found only one article where there was a slight political jab but the rest has never touched on some personal biased opinion writers have nowadays. It is a daily go to site for me to read simple and straight forward articles about tech. Highly recomend to add to the list. It's not a big site and you can tell it's not as big as Toms. I prefer it over anything that Arstechnica or Techradar has to say as they have become so political it makes one want to vomit because of the trash they spew out daily. If they do change I will change my review in a second so as it stands now they are a good trustworthy site.

This is a hard one in that I always have read CBSNEWS for years. They use to be left leaning for sure but I could count on 60% of the articles being solid to read. Now since the 2016 Election season it just went to the dogs. I hate that everything is a knock to the President and that they skewer every single subject to insult or shame anyone who agrees with the President. It's disheartening that grown adults act as children and have dropped to such a low level of discourse in todays society. As well every subject has become so tightly wound around political correctness that saying certain truths is sometimes a no no. They also seem not report all the facts or whole story nowadays. I find many articles are only half the facts or view points and they leave it that way because telling the whole story would hurt a policy they want to have or contradicts what they have reported on earlier. I read sites from the far left to the far right to get the whole truth, CBS is on the left and wavers far left sometimes. A good 10 years ago they were closer to the centre but now anyone who is honest, really honest knows that is no longer true. The majority of the articles never takes into consideration on how the average person feels but tries to manipulate the reader to the views of very liberal ideals. The wording of articles makes liberal ideas and view points as matter of fact rather than it being their opinion and nothing more than that. If you chose to read CBS NEWS it would be advantageous to read other sites to get the full and balanced view of everything of what is going on. In my opinion I see CBS is farther left than they want you to believe. No news site nowadays is free of biased opinions but thoes who say they are fair and balanced should try and live up to that. If you have conservative ideals then CBS NEWS is not the place to look. If you want the middle ground then it would be good to read Breitbart and then CBS and then the whole story will be in the middle somewhere between them.

Reuters is a very left leaning biased news source now. Reuters news used to be a reasonable news site but that has long passed. I read many sites each day to get a well rounded view of things and Reuters has gone down hill. The last two years has been the worst for a real honest article from them. They believe they are hiding how they feel but they are not fooling anyone with a half working brain. Sorry but they are just as bad as CNN now as truthfullness regarding any subject of POTUS or any GOP member. I don't like when FOX goes all biased and Reuters is worse then them and is at the same level as CNN as regards biased reporting.
