In my case, I get my news from twitter. This social network allows you to select which sources are prefered to bring you the information. I remember it was so hard to find objective sources when I started using this platform; separating the wheat from the chaff took me too much time, but now, I realise it was worthy. Personally, I don't trust on mainstream news media since they are usually intended to political purposes. Indeed, I consider equally concerning the spread of fake news than the spread of politically retouched news.

Nowadays there are many wrong information on the internet. It's really hard to separate the good info for the bad info. I used to check the security of the website, and, I think that this is a good way to certificate the reliability of the info itself. Be careful about fake news!
