We Value Your Input: Poll on Unacceptable News Sources for 4&20 Bloggers!

By JC

Just wonderin’ what would make all of our readers happier, and because we value your opinion and believe in self-censorship…

Vote for 4 news sources, including a write in for your favorite news sites to avoid!


  1. evdebs

    So, 4&20 readers feel that the BBC and NPR are as awful as Breitbart and Drudge, and that World Net Daily isn’t as bad.

    What does that say about these readers?.

      did you vote?

  2. First seven listed in the results are what I regard as usual suspects and Mockingbirds, and there is small sample bias to boot, so no useful information here yet. I also suspect there is considerable denial going on here, and that American TV news weighs in much heavier but is not admitted.

    And there is reason for encouragement as 20 years ago American MSM would have supplied 80% of what we call news.

      Their order in poll rotates: you know that, right?

      • You realize I was looking at results, right?

          sad that your world is so tiny:

    Good idea, JC.

    Drudge, RT, Haaretz, Clear Channel, Breitbart, Cable News all crap.

    NPR lacks but the BBC and local public radio in general provide the best news out there; many producers follow me back on twitter. CounterPunch and i follow each other on twitter. i follow McClatchy and truthout, some others.

    • Huh?

    fyi: cheaters like toke can just clear their browsing history and vote as many times as you like.

    • Hint: Not a contest. JC was interested in how readers here get their news.

      We don’t take newspapers, and do not watch television news. I avoid American news sources. Consequently, I am pretty well informed on events, better than most.

      • I knew you guys would like that comment. Truth-telling is looked down upon here in the Empire of Lies.

        • larry kurtz

          you wouldn’t know the truth if it came up and kicked you in the balls you used to have, toke.

        • That might have sounded like ego talk. I was not talking about me. I can be fooled, like everyone. I was talking about the American news media, voice of the Empire, long infiltrated by CIA (look up Operation Mockingbird), and nothing more than silly stenographers.
