In a new age of internet fraud, fake news stories, and new political administrations that waste their own “alternative facts”, where do we often find the real, the real facts?
Many people look nervous and confused. News from the BBC and the New York Times and Money Magazine (with evidence) is reporting a significant increase in sales of novelist novels like 1984 by George Orwell’s and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”. Donations were made to the Committee to Protect Journalists after Meryl Streep’s anti-Trump and pro-journalism speech at the Golden Globe Awards in January. According to the Columbia Journalism Review and other sources, subscriptions to the New York Times and other newspapers have increased dramatically since Donald Trump was elected president.
Meanwhile, many literate friends are wondering whether their reading habits are leading them to facts or fiction.
There are a lot of news sources in the USA, here we are going to discuss the ten best news sources in the USA.
1. The New York Times
It is, I think, the most important newspaper in America. Its editorial page and some of its news coverages are taking the world’s left-leaning, broadminded ideology. But New York Times has also focused on the ethical standards of reporting in the United States and the classic elements of journalism. That’s what keeps NYT going, arguably, the news organization that sets the agenda in the United States. It is an innovator in business, governmental issues, and culture coverage.
2. The Wall Street Journal
The WSJ, the largest circulating newspaper in the United States, made its mark as a business newspaper and set out to write a new kind of feature in American journalism (e.g., its bizarre medal column feature) called the ” Ahed ” and the longer form, in-depth reports (called “leaders”).
Since the company was bought by Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch in 2007, WSJ has sought to cover more general news than business news. WSJ is still the brand X in daily business publications around the world. Its editorial page is a stronghold of American free-market conservatism, aimed at “free market, free people.” With the strategy of former Republican speechwriters and columnists such as Karl Rove, Peggy Noonan, and Bill McGuire, the WSJ’s editorial page is often a must-read for Republicans in Washington.
3. The Washington Post
President Richard Nixon resigned after the “Washington Post” reported on the Watergate scandal in the early 1970s. For decades, this post has been part of all three national newspapers – a peer of New York Times and WSJ – hiring the best and brightest journalists to win the Pulitzer Prize and develop large scopes.
Of the three, Post is now the most forward-thinking in testing digital strategies, encouraging readers. And with Bezos’ backing, the Post is committed to hiring talented reporters, while the NYT and WSJ have been cutting their reporting staff in recent months. Maximum persons pondering that the post-editorial page leans left, but often it is considered more of a center-left than New York Times.
The BBC broadcasts world-class excellence in radio and TV journalism. If only American cable news outlets are capable to follow the BBC’s instructions. And although PBS provides some great entertainment, documentaries, and news programs, its news programs often seem to lack the BBC’s creative energy.
Although NPR produces some amazing journalism, most of its news comes from the re-reporting of the New York Times and the Associated Press. And the American people are beginning to see NPR as more left-leaning than the BBC.
5. The Economist
Another British expert, The Economist Magazine, includes leading economists and journalists who produce sharply edited, realistically rigorous accounts of what is happening in the world every week. The strange thing is that economists do not publish their authors’ publications, so you never know who wrote exactly what.
6. The New Yorker
The US Treasury publishes non-fiction fragments of a growing number of top authors and reporters each week in a print magazine and on other platforms.
New York is easily increasing its audience on the web, offering the public content that is used only to its print users. The actual magazine runs a piece of fiction every week (recognizes it as such). The result is in-depth reporting and analysis every week that is hard to search anywhere else. And the story structures and methods used by the authors make it interesting to read. Like the Times, New York offers a broadminded view of the world. Conservative readers should introduce this, but it should not let them down from enjoying the best reporting and writing in the world.
7. Wire Services: The Associated Press, Reuters, Bloomberg News
You cannot absolutely “subscribe” to these wire facilities. But you can rely on the information of these organizations based on facts. They give support to the flow of news and information about politics and the economy. And their member organizations that publish their reports benefit from that reporting.
You can subscribe to these organizations on social media and reporters for these organizations can also follow some reporters who report to you on topics of interest.
8. Foreign Affairs
The Council on Foreign Relations has published this bi-monthly magazine. This is an important magazine for those who want information about world affairs. The magazine and its many digital platforms benefit from numerous high-profile submissions, dialogues, differing views, and analyses on international relations.
9. The Atlantic
This is another national treasure, a monthly magazine from Washington DC that offers views of the nation and the world. This has been reported by many top journalists who write long-form features and also write some analysis. The Atlantic website sometimes leads to clickable headlines. But the magazine and its parent company have also subscribed to the principles of factual reporting in American journalism.
Initiated by journalists who left the Washington Post in 2006, Politico has become a major player in political reporting in the United States.
Politico is simply available on the Internet and mobile devices but it publishes some products in print. Keep an eye on Axios, this year the two founders of Politico started a news startup.
