Looking for credible news outlets that are predominately unbiased and relay current events be it domestically or internationally on social media. 

Through Instagram/Twitter

As with anything, you have to sift through the nonsense and find the gems. NPR (National Public Radio in the United States) has some informative and unbiased news stories.

NPR is biased, particularly in its selction of news and editing.

The most straightforward l found are Xinhuanet and NHK.

Then DeutscheWelle.

After that, reporting is basic and only spun if the home-country has an explicit policy objective.

Then BBC

Then NPR  -if you do not mind the leftist-socialist-whiney stories.

The worse are US media which either uncritically parrots US gov't (like in the leadup to the US invasion of lraq) or takes a leftist view.

Every news outlet has its own biases and a narrative that it propagates on most current events and politics. 

It's important that you know what each outlet propagates as that will help you in figuring out the level of bias in their news. 

If you want a clear understanding of what's going on, you have to follow the opposite narratives and by using your own judgement, you'd conclude that reality could be somewhere in between.

We had this in elementary school, similar from our parents, and in our written assignments on current events in high school.

Uhhh, and besides, S.C signifies "shi'a chat" and not "simple cymon".  :D

@The Green Knight  Thanks for the "mint". l looked and found an article on Gabbard being the "1".

To supporters of Iran and Syria, the only credible news sources are those supporting Russia and Iran. All others are considered bias or non credible.

Personally I enjoy NPR and PBS.

I would recommend DeutscheWelle, Asahi Shimbun, France 24 and the Independent.

Stay far away from Xinhua, it's the mouthpiece of the Chinese government and the Uyghur Muslims are being oppressed by the Chinese government. I wouldn't trust anything from Xinhua.

Finding unbiased news is hard. Everyone has an angle, as well as the desire to monetize what they can. Going so far as to change the news to fit the narrative of the people with money/power.

The most common news sites I go to to get news are below,

AP News;

https://apnews.com/

Reuters;

https://www.reuters.com/

Radio Free Europe;

https://www.rferl.org/

Pew Research;

https://www.pewresearch.org/

Hope this helps.

Perhaps people are confusing news with commmentary?

Also, “bias“ is a loaded word. More appropriately, it should he termed “frame of reference”. People will identify with the source whose frame of reference best matches with their values. :verryhappy:

Their mission seems to be education, not posturing. They are non-profit organizations and they give both sides of a news story. If they were accused of biased reporting in the past, they have made strides to do a better job now.
