Recommended Websites for News and Commentary

Scroll down for a list of links.

A lot of Americans don’t understand — or don’t want to admit — that they get their news and information mostly from sources that exist for the express purpose of furthering a left-wing narrative and ignorance.

Ever heard of low information voters? Some of them stay that way even though they “pay attention to the news.” The problem is they tune into places like MSNBC, the other network news reports (radio or TV), most of the print media, and websites like Yahoo News, Google News, AOL News, or the Huffington Post. Those outlets toe the line and rarely waver from distributing the “news” filtered through a left-wing prism.

Another thing a lot of our fellow citizens either don’t want to admit or are unaware of is, a great deal of their understanding of the world is shaped via pop culture propaganda and outright lies, rather than the facts.

One of my favorite examples from recent history is “Bush lied, people died.” The problem is, Bush didn’t lie. We found WMDs in Iraq. How come most people don’t know that? That’s my point. Heck, in this case, even the very liberal and often dishonest New York Times did some reporting on the story. (To read more, here are some articles you might want to check out.)

So where do I recommend that people get their news and information? The Fox News Channel? Absolutely not. I rarely watch Fox. Sure, they do some fine reporting, but increasingly the behavior of that network mirrors the rest of the media. Fox, like all the rest, refuses to cover the news and facts that fly against the narrative being pushed by the corporate owners or managing editors. Fair and balanced? Sometimes.

Here are just some of the places I get news and information…there are a lot more links to add…and I will continue to lengthen this list in the coming weeks.

First up, since President Donald J. Trump is the focus of so much of the media, here are items of recommended reading from the White House: West Wing Reads.

Second,President Donald J. Trump’s website keeping track of “promises made, promises kept”: Making America Great Again —

Third, here is a great resource for news about the growing worldwide persecution of Christians that the American dominant media mostly ignore: The Gatestone Institute — Writings by Topic: Persecution of Christians.

Fourth, a terrific humorous website: Babylon Bee.

Fifth, the rest…
