Half-decent media outlets (General)

This might be a stupid question - but have you found any media outlets that reliably print factual details?

I've read a lot of Covid related stuff - you can get bits and pieces from some - most of it needs deciphering - but struggle to think of one that i'd recommend. That's scary in itself.

Oh, Taiwan News is not bad. https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/index

I don't. Every major outlet has an agenda of some sort. I'd also like to find an outlet that asks honest questions and invites open discussion.

One question I'd start with is, if current vaccines do not reduce the viral load of the Delta strain in those infected, does that mean, at least with regards to Delta, that vaccines will not help curb the pandemic?

That seems like such a simple question, but nobody is asking it.

In the US, much of the news originates from the big services, AP, UPI, and Reuters.

Then you have what I would call the second tier, consumer organizations like CNN, Newsweek, FOX, etc., which occasionally do some of their own original research. Of those, I'd say Newsweek is probably the least corrupt.

But historically, it's the news services that were supposed to provide unbiased, objective news. Those times are gone I'm afraid. These services aren't asking the obvious questions.

So I don't know. I think we're likely screwed.

I'm trying to use Google as little as possible, particularly for news, and I recently ran across these sites:

https://flipboard.com

https://upstract.com

https://upstract.com

They seem to work well. I just got sick of Google's ads and tracking, and there news page just wasn't cutting it any longer.

I'm also a fan of AP, Al Jazeera, and have recently been visiting Euronews more frequently.

Haha - was just about post Unherd. Had a quick look at a couple of the others - seem promising. Thanks for that. It's good to have some ports of refuge in this crazy corrupt storm that's raging around the world.

Speaking of storms - normal ones - this typhoon heading vaguely towards Philippines/Taiwan/maybe Japan could be anything - that's the classic path where the big Cat-5's work up a head of steam.

Don't know a lot about this but at least it's an alternative source of info. Quite subversive, which is like a breath of fresh air.

Daniela Cambone | Sansberry Research

Daniela Cambone does a lot of good interviews for Sansberry Research. One thing I like about her is that she takes on guests with opposing viewpoints.

Today I watched this video. Its title, Banks to Seize Your Money in Coming Financial Crisis Warns David Morgan, is a bit of click bait, but it's an interesting interview. He qualifies that statement in the interview. It's not as outlandish as it sounds. A lot of her guests are coming on and saying, it's clear, everything economic is truly messed up.

Newsweek has started running what appears to be fairly balanced, in-depth podcasts on current topics. Here's a recent one.

You can find the page for the podcast here.

On a somewhat related note, I'm working on a method and system for collecting (as in downloading and saving) and storing a lot of the resources we've been identifying, which mostly means web pages, but also pdf docs.

What you'll find is that, over time, a lot of these things will disappear from the Internet via URL changes, site updates, and good old censorship. Most bad links are the result of site maintenance.

I've found a great tool for archiving web pages.

Great! A lot of time the best material comes from the subjects' own websites - they don't realize how incriminating they are. So if they do realize, it's easy to change, take down.
