With the Presidential Elections just around the corner and early voting in effect, I wanted to write this for those who are still undecided and haven’t voted. In this day and age, there is a huge amount of media bias in practically every news source out there. For years, I grew up watching the news and because I was young and not very into politics, I was not aware that I was being swayed to think one way without even noticing.
When I became an adult and obtained my own set of values and morals, was when I realized how biased some of the channels I watched were. I have since become pretty skeptical of many sites and TV channels. I do have my political leanings but I think it is important to get up to date news from websites that are mostly unbiased.
I think it is important, as an individual, to think for yourself and make up your own mind, regardless of what your family and friends may think. I typically don’t discuss politics outside of certain family members and close friends because of how polarized politics have made everyone. I am open to trying to understand why someone thinks differently than me but there have been times where I alluded to my own leanings and was immediately mocked. Hence why I don’t discuss politics with just anyone.
Anyway, I wanted to provide this list of websites where you can get your news and be able to formulate your own views and opinions without being swayed by media bias.
