News Research
Question: How can you tell when a politician is lying? Answer: His lips are moving.

Going to FactCheck is another way you can tell. So when one says inflation is up, and the other says inflation is down, go to FactCheck and find out who's the one playing loose.
FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting)
Reporting news should be about providing an accurate picture of what's going on, rather than quoting officials who have their own agendas. When anyone from MSNBC to the New York Times presents a distorted picture of what's going on, FAIR not only will tell you, but they'll confront them - and tell you how they responded.

Don't watch TV News or read a newspaper without checking in with FAIR. And if you're too busy to do that, sign up for their alerts and they'll e-mail the most egregious stories to you.
Kaiser Family Foundation
A nonprofit organization that researches and reports on national health care policy issues.
Media Bias
How reliable is the news you read? Media Bias/Fact Check analyzes thousands of media sources and reports their political bias and how trustworthy the information they report is. Most important, they tell you the reasoning that supports their analysis.

As a bonus, you can use their website to discover new sources of information.
Similar to FactCheck. Reading both will give you a more complete picture.
