In my country there is literally no real neutral news media (especially when it comes to politics), he said in US there are (but I somewhat disagree)... when it comes to news media in general you have to think twice and try to know the gist of it rather than just being a sheep. It is always best to look at both sides of a topic or news and then learn to know the truth, sure it is hard but always try to make your own opinion rather than completely take what it is.
Neutral News Media?
*insert J. Jonah Jameson laughing video here*
Okay, I jest; but most American News Channels are pretty biased (it depends, FOX News is notorious for their Right Wing bias).
Britain's a lot better; but if you believe certain whistleblowers, the BBC is getting increasingly left wing (and has been doing so for decades). Fortunately, it doesn't really effect what gets shown on the News (yet), because they take Journalistic Neutrality very seriously.
Can't say much about other countries.
You're right though that it's always better to know both sides of the topic, though obviously some people want to make that very difficult for the layman.
