    "With all the attention in the media lately on what is and what is not fake news, I decided to start looking for a reputable source to sort of trim the fat. Being an avid reader and watcher of Fox News was taking its toll and I knew that MSNBC and CNN were right out so I took to Google to find another news source. I came across Reuters and decided to give it a try. It's about several months now I must say that I am very pleased with how balanced everything seems to be. I don't see the annoying puff pieces like I did before and with no obnoxious ads to get in the way when I'm reading an article, it's made my daily intake of news much more enjoyable."

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that Pizzagate, one of the most talked-about conspiracy theories during the 2016 US Presidential Election, is an example of the disastrous effects of fake news? Pizzagate is a conspiracy theory about former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager John Podesta running a child-sex ring in a Washington, D.C. restaurant named Comet Ping Pong. It was started by a white supremacist account on Twitter, which said that New York police found a lead on a pedophilia ring linked to members of the Democratic Party. Internet users then used that information to say that the leaked confidential emails of Podesta had codes, like cheese pizza for child pornography because of the initials.

Because of the news, Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis told The New York Times that he, his staff, and his family and friends became under assault since the issue came out, and he even received death threats. Even the painter Arrington de Dionyso, whose murals grace the interiors of the pizzeria, was harassed online. But the issue climaxed when an Edgar Welch, a 28-year-old man from North Carolina, went to Comet Ping Pong to "self-investigate" and fired three shots from his AR-15-style rifle.

    "While the USA Today website is a very popular as well as populated with news stories website at times a person just wants to read news that has nothing to do with death, murder, sex, theft or any of the many mortal sins of the day. USA is a great venue for keeping one updated on the world at large today. The site might be served better, or at least more appealing to a wider group of people, if they were to publish news pertinent to the locale in which they are being distributed."

    "The website and paper itself are generally respected, but they demonstrate problems that are typical of traditional news media. Namely, they sometimes show a liberal and urban bias that sometimes I find off-putting. Comment sections tend to do the same as well. They seem to be a bit out of touch with what's happening in many swathes of the country."

    "If you're looking for a great news website that involves both domestic and international news, look no further. I have personally been in the market for a great news website for quite sometime and finally came across this website called CNN. This website is great for many reasons as it provides you with breaking news information at a nearly constant pace from all over the world. It has an efficient layout and all of the covered stories and general information is very easy and convenient to find. Based on my experiences, CNN almost always has the latest stories as well as very interesting perspectives on said stories. Their journalists are top notch and continue to provide some of the best news coverage in the business. I love this website and would recommend it to everyone."

    "I was searching for world news, and found myself on the Wall Street Journal site. It looks like it has a lot of good resources for someone who wants to keep up with business news and track their investments. It's probably not the best source for analysis of world news that doesn't have direct financial effects, but it certainly helped me become more informed about world news as it affects the business world."

    "When you go to sites like CNN you sometimes get a lot of world news depending on what's going on in the world, but a lot of the time it's focused on things happening here at home. That's why I was in desperate need of a website that would give me stories from around the world so that I could get a more in depth look at what was really going on in the world around me. Daily Mail solved that problem by providing me with important stories from the United States mixed in with popular stories, but having a heavy focus on stories from around the world that might interest me."
