Democracy Now produces an hour-long news show every weekday that’s broadcast on the Internet, TV, and radio. It was founded in 1996 by a group of journalists who value deep investigative reporting. In fact, Amy Goodman has been arrested for covering both the 2008 Republican National Convention and the 2016 North Dakota pipeline protests. This is real, fearless journalism at its core.
Politico was started in 2007 and has grown exponentially since. Its known for taking a hard stance on politics both domestically and internationally.

The Intercept launched in 2014 as the platform for Glenn Greenwald to disseminate Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks.

5. The Atlantic

Time Magazine was founded in 1923 and is known for its annual “Person of the Year” issue that profiles the most influential person of each year.

It’s also a reputable source for weekly, in-depth coverage of topics across a wide range of subjects.
National Public Radio was started in 1970 in response to the Congressional passage of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967. It’s a nonprofit organization that’s both publicly and privately funded.

Whether journalistic reports or editorial opinions, it covers everything from movies, music, and books, to business, politics, and lifestyle content, all with a firm liberal bias. It often takes a controversial stance, (i.e. calling Otto Warmbier an “idiot frat boy” while defending Todd Nickerson as “a pedophile, but not a monster.”) and backs down from these stances by deleting content to protect its reputation.
CNN was started in 1980 as a 24-hour cable news channel, making it the first all-news TV channel in the U.S. As part of Time Warner, it has a definite liberal bias, although it considers itself unbiased and the most trusted name in news.
