The so-called wire services, Reuters, United Press International (UPI) and Associated Press (AP), provide basic news without editorial comment that is spread across many newspapers and TV programs. At least I assume that is still true. Bill could tell us if AP or UPI is a source for him. All three have web sites now. I prefer Reuters or UPI. I think they are both well-organized. They have feeds of all kinds; Twitter, podcasts, etc. I get the Reuters podcast, but it has a lot of international news using third world readers I have difficulty understanding. If you get news alerts on your phone or iPod/iPad, they are a short version of what you get from Reuters. Typically a Reuters story will last 4 or 5 minutes.
This is stretching the reach of the thread, however. Bill solicited an opinion about TV news. It may be that reliable, non-partisan, basic, non-fake news is best found at these sites.
