Actually, I trust no media. That's how "conspiracy" I am. Everything has an angle, everything an agenda. But clearly you don't trust media unless it has your opinion.

Everyone should be like this, but that doesn't mean that reliable news sources don't exist.

It's about cobbling it all together, piecing together a holistic puzzle.

I take local news outlets with a grain of salt based on the stories they report. I look for the missing pieces to the stories that don't add up but as far as certain things regarding politics and other areas. I rely on those reliable sources I mentioned early.

You want to be looking at the actual studies and data instead of getting this information second hand with an agenda attached

In general though if you're using multiple sources and you have basic critical thinking skills that'll work

That, and wiki leaks. Most people I know that hated Trump at first and were converted said it was because of the lying biased media.

The media was not lying or biased it milked Trump for huge profits and in return basically ran his campaign for him.

If anything the media was incredibly soft on him until it was too late

That's what I do. When I hear a claim and I actually feel like researching it I usually search for evidence proving it and evidence disproving it. It's a bit too much work just to find the truth.
