Hi Fernando, love your book and blog. What sources of news do you trust and follow for international and US news? Same question for economic information. Thanks -Rick
Hi Rick. Thanks, glad you liked my book.
try to read several news outlets so as to gather information as
objectively as possible. Every news source has its own agenda, some more
noticeable and more extremist than others. This chart gives you an idea
of what to expect.
I start with a news widget in my cell phone that shows me headlines
from various outlets including CNN, AP, CBS, Slate, Fox and Yahoo News
just to mention some.
In general I balance CNN, BBC, Fox, but also
check RT and Al Jazeera along with local media sources from wherever it
is that I am. I can’t say I trust much any of them. It’s the collection
of them which I try to look through to learn the truth of whats going
on out there.
You have to know what to expect from each one, know their bias. That way its easier to distil the actual news.
