    I have recommended Ace of Spades for a good compilation of daily news here before. I like this one for world events. It is affiliated with the David Horowitz Freedom Center, fyi.

    WSJ
    Breitbart
    Fox

    WSJ gives a depth to their articles which few newspapers do anymore. Probably one of the last bastions of true journalism left on the national level. I feel they do have a political tilt toward the Chamber of Commerce.

    I used to read the Christian Monitor when it was in print, but they have problems with fact-checking at times. It’s rare, but they don’t correct themselves which is a problem.

    However, I often go to the Monitor and Vice News for feature stories not covered anywhere else. I am careful with Vice because they are heavily leftist. However, some good information can’t be found anywhere else.

    Breitbart isn’t real journalism - they usually just repackage information found elsewhere. Although they do have information about the drug cartels found in no other newspaper and occasionally do original news stories.

    Fox is where I go to find out what the “popular” mass of Republicans read. I will usually just read the headlines. They have nothing the WSJ doesn’t except for “titillating” stories which I can do without. There is also an annoying amount of hypernationalism.

    At times I will use a British newspaper, but many times I find them worse than Fox as far as titillation. In addition, they have no adversity to lying in order to sell a story. So, I am careful to double-check their facts.

    Found this site a while back. They present the same story from three sides: Left, Center, and Right.

    AllSides | Balanced news via media bias ratings for an unbiased news perspective

    Otherwise I get my news from Google's news feed app, being cognizant of the sources and reading appropriately. For example, I've already told Google I don't want stories from HuffPo, Vox, Atlantic, Buzzfeed, and a bunch of others, so I don't see them. Fox News, National Review, Washington Examiner, WSJ (requires a subscription but there are ways around it) have been favorited so I typically get their articles before CNN (which I hardly ever read), WaPo (leftist and requires a subscription, so I avoid), NY Times (leftist and requires a subscription, so I avoid).

    The Hill and Politico are neutral or left-leaning, IMO. I still read some of their stuff.

    Drudge Report...

    DRUDGE REPORT 2020®

    It is a jump off for a hundred or so news and journalists links.

    I'm a stick in the mud. I read the print version of the WSJ every day. Herself loves the Off Duty section in the Saturday edition.

    I'm probably not as interested in 'breaking news' as I am with commentary, in which I like:

    https://www.americanthinker.com/

    The Last Refuge (somewhat Christian with reader comments)

    The American Spectator | Politics Is Too Important To Be Taken Seriously.

    Power Line (somewhat Jewish with reader comments)

    The Epoch Times - Truth & Tradition. Fact Based. Unbiased. Accurate News ( news and commentary, somewhat Christian, and growing, like)

    Weasel Zippers | Scouring the bowels of the internet | Weasel Zippers (news with comments)

    Front Page Stories | RedState (news and commentary)

    Don Surber (daily brief commentary and keeper of The Trumpenfreude List)

    For the latest breaking news, hard to beat:

    The Gateway Pundit - Where Hope Finally Made a Comeback and Breitbart News Network

    Also like BNL NEWS (@BreakingNLive) | Twitter

    Your list reads like about half of my homepage links, heh. I’ll check what’s left to see if it is of interest to you!
