I mostly get info form my local NPR (National Public Radio) station. I might get some info from Facebook, but it is a real pain to have to fact check stuff from there.

The key word in the question by MyLiege is 'objective'.
Most answers are referring to left or right leaning media.
Neither of them are objective.
Barring NPR, PBS, BBC, Vox and a few others, mainstream media
has become a cesspool of one sided views.
As much as I like Maddow & Todd, I find it difficult to put up with an entire
hour of their trash talking and demeaning even though what they say is mostly true.
How about giving us some real news like we got before the pit bulls took over the media.

Truth.

Mostly MSNBC. I like Stephanie Ruhle, Ari Melber, Chuck Todd and absolutely love Joy Reid.

I like Above the Fold for environmental and health info. It is an accumulator site that has an option for a daily email.
For everything else nbcnews dot com.

MSNBC-I trust them to cover all sides.

wowl.....I'm rather disappointed that not one alternative news source was mentioned below for an alternative minded community. That really blows a developing theory of mine into redevelopment. As do some recent reply's to some of my post 😟 My favorite investigative journalist is Abby Martin. Currently working mostly from teleSur. You can find an English version of their sites. She is an actual investigative journalist who often actually puts herself in harms way to get to the truth of world issues. Like Palestine, Venezuela, the Middle East, And country's in South and Central America. You can find some of her work on her site here>>>[theempirefiles.tv] She also has a facebook page to follow her on. Others would be The Real News Network, Common Dreams, Thruthout, Medium, right off the top of my head. If you'd like some help finding the sites feel free to let me know. Common Dreams is one I've been following for several years. If you get them from their web sight, although on facebook also, the members on the web site provide a quite intelligent comments section. They have no reluctance to call out certain writers for them when they post an establishment friendly article. Unfortunately, that is one downfalls that has come into CD over the years. The Real News Network is another one I've been following for years. I especially like when they have chats with Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson. A hard critic to the Afghan and Iraq wars. Although I'm deeply disappointed in TRNN's addition of adding Nina Turner to the program, it's a very good source of good news.

Google Newsstand gives me news articles from a wide variety of sources; it's a useful little app, to be sure.
