You're delusional if you you think you can justifiably equate CNN's slightly left-of-center reporting with the extreme-right pundit barking of CNS News.

And no, I don't get my news from CNN.

Very interesting.

https://www.quora.com/On-a-liberal-to-co...n-Times-and-NYT

It’s important to know news bias but it’s also important to know if news media are honest and factual.

Some news sources are highly biased, but they may still be quite factual, they just cover stories which support their point of view and/or they use “loaded” language in reporting. Mother Jones on the left, and Toronto Sun on the right, for example, are known to report accurately, but are very biased. Others, do just flat out lie or leave out important facts, which is why I think you need to know both the bias and truthfulness of your preferred news media.

One good source for determining whether a media source is factual or not (fake news) as well as the political bias it espouses is Media Bias/Fact Checking. They list over 1100 so-called news sources. In terms of bias, they use 5 categories: Left Bias, Left-Center Bias, Least Biased, Right-Center Bias, and Right Bias.

Of the news sources you listed, Media Bias/Fact Checking rates most of them “Factual Reporting: High” and say are “usually well sourced and factual”. The exceptions are MSNBC and Fox News. They are listed as:

Fox News Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Fox News Channel has been accused of biased reporting and promoting the Republican Party and has been deemed the least accurate cable news source according to Politifact.

MSNBC Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Has left wing bias in reporting and wording. MSNBC has also made some false claims according to Politifact.

Here’s a list from Media Bias/Fact Checking that includes the news sources you mention. I’ve highlighted and italicized the media you asked about:

Left

Mother Jones, Slate, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Center for Media and Democracy, Change.org, Daily Beast, GQ Magazine, Move On, People Magazine

Center Left

Washington Post, New York Times, Sky News, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, BBC, NPR, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Sun Times, US News & World Report, Time Magazine

Least Biased

USA Today, Reuters, Associated Press (AP), United Press International (UPI), International Business Times, The Economist, Harvard Political Review, Politifact, Pew Research, Factcheck.org, C-SPAN, Christian Science Monitor, Voice of America


Center Right

New York Post, Washington Times, Boston Herald, Wall Street Journal, Military Times, Florida Times Union, Dallas Morning News, Orange County Register, Forbes Magazine, Fortune Magazine, London Times, Daily Telegraph (London), Wikileaks

Right

Fox News, Breitbart, Christian Post, Drudge Report, Toronto Sun, Truth in Media, Unbiased America , National Review, Judicial Watch, Independent Journal Review

Many other newspapers, magazines, radio stations, and television news stations are rated by this group. For more information please see their website. Media Bias/Fact Checking

And if it's something YOU'RE claiming, you can bet the farm on the fact that you'll be proven to be 100% wrong. So, at least MY garbage passes the "Smell Test".
