    Your news source may be unreliable if...

    ...an article on NASA's teleconference on the latest Kepler discovery mentions the possible discovery of alien life. Some articles do and some don't. The ones that do are the same ones that I avoid. Once in a while I like confirming that the little news sources that I tend to avoid are still crappy.

    They have story titles that end in question marks.

    They cite sources of quotes but not the context that generated the quote.

    They have audio ads in written stories

    They show off their video editing skills.

    They have links to one weird trick.

    Their story feed shares space with advertisement links.

    They have obvious blueprints for story titles so that you can pull up lists of stories with titles differentiated only by their proper nouns

    Their story titles contain obvious subjective judgement.
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    If it comes from literally anywhere. It's all unreliable. Some more than others. Show me news without an agenda and I'll show you gold coins inside my urethra.

    I'll give you the news without an agenda. It's cold outside and I just smoked a bowl. More at 11.

    A short-organ fellow named Kevin
    used a vacuum to stretch it to seven,
    then to eight and to nine,
    and though ten was divine,
    there will be film at eleven.*

    If you think that our boy's now a stud,
    you've been fooled by the size of his pud.
    Although twelve inches soft,
    when it rises aloft,
    he just faints from the sheer lack of blood.
