Great article! I find a good middle ground is to look at how facts are reported, and remove all of the narrative associated with the networks (obvious) political bias. By spreading out where I get my news from, I have found I (somehow) arrive at a pretty well balanced idea of the truth, without having to do a ton of fact checking. When something I am interested in is reported on the BBC, I’ll check it again on Al Jazeera, RT and Reuters. The BBC is are more subtle in it’s left-leaning political bias but it is there!
