    Even lamestream media was terrible with the Conn school shootings. Accuracy seems to always take a back seat to the adrenalin rush of first dibs.....

    Absolutely agree, somehow they added my email to their daily updates and they absolutely make Alex Jones look conservative. I for one believe that what makes RR such a "safe place" is the accountability and wisdom displayed

    people are just so prone to "rush to" "knee jerk" reactions ...when its a REAL story of importance or relevance it will be validated and substantiated by people we have learned to trust and thankfully RR is just such a place
    Romans 13:11 This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here.

    Might be helpful to update this thread with Al Jazeera. I didn't realize it was an unacceptable source until a mod pointed it out earlier today. It's listed in Rule # 9 however, in the Rules and Doctrinal Statements sub-forum. I've long known Al Jazeera are as left field as far as the eye can see. I was careful when citing them not to include any of their philosophy, usually just a source of events. Kinda like, how far can you spin a story where the event was 'a car hit a tree and damaged the front right light'. But then, someone with a flare for 'creative journalism' could probably sway public opinion with even the most mundane incidents.

    Default Unreliable "news" sources

    You should also add "Before It's News." It would also be great if whoever makes the decisions to include articles on Rapture Ready News would not use these sources either.

    Not only is "BeforeItsNews" not reliable, but McAFee Safe Site Advisor shows a big red X next to that website meaning "beware, they will download all sorts of spyware junk on your computer if you click on the website"!

    The mods have nothing to do with the main page. You can PM Todd if you'd like.

    You're both right, it's just been added to rule #9.

    I doint know Zero Hedge, but Debka tends to report things that have little if any confirmation in the rush to be 'first'.

    First I want to give a huge THANKS to the folks who've helped compile the list of unreliable news sources. I had a hunch wnd and beforeitsnews were bad, but now I am convinced thanx to this site.

    Could someone update the list on the first post to include new additions? I'd like to save this list so I can reference it when someone at work or elsewhere tries to get me to read articles from these sites.
    love in Christ Jesus & prayers,

    I am ready to go!!!

    I'm glad to see that Rapture Ready doesn't encourage sensational and false news stories on this forum. We should be accountable for what we post.

    Is news from Yahoo.com acceptable? It is very mainstream, and I feel silly asking this question, but there are plenty of times that Yahoo adds a very left wing slanted bias to the story. Does this bias and their credibility conflict with this forum's level of acceptability as a news source? Thank you.

    Yahoo News is a news aggregate source and as such, they can't help but reflect the left-wing bias prevalent in so many new stories these days.

    As far as their reliability is concerned, they are about as reliable as anything you might see from any of the other mainstream news sources.

    As with anything else in this age of the 24 hour news cycle, one should always keep in mind that breaking news is often developing news and circumstances and facts may not always be as they are first reported.

    Practice discernment in all things.
