I’m collecting news programs / channels that have a Right Wing Bias. Fox has now gone off to the Dark Side (in a few small steps) and is unlikely to remain a reliable news source for long, given the trends.
So with the rest of the YSM being Hard Left, what’s a moderate middle of the bird type to do for some unbiased news?
The only real choice is “compare and contrast” of Right Wing News to the Left Wing News. I’ve used this method for years with various National Advocacy News sources. So things like RT, sponsored by Russia, will not “talk dirt” about Russia, but will ruthlessly rip into the dirt on other countries / leaders. Then slide over to the EU and France 24 loves to give the dirt on Russia (Macron and France not so much…)
Similarly, war news is always one sided. In the Middle East, I’d watch Israeli news, Al Jazeera, RT, and US / EU sources. I’d get live video, sometimes from both sides of a front line during the same confrontation. The bias also stands out starkly.
So what’s the alternative news sources? Largely TBD, but I’m going to collect a set here. First TV (as I can let it run while I’m doing other things with my eyes and fingers…) then more print sources.
An easy starter here is Pluto TV. They are like cable TV without the cable. Free with advertising and you can watch it on a Roku, with an App or on a browser. It is time-synchronous (i.e. appointment TV… shows have a show time. They are adding a saved section where you can replay some stuff, but I’ve not explored it yet). There are “Live” and “On Demand” buttons on the top of the menu. Lots of movies on demand, but a page search for the word “News” had zero hits for “On Demand”. I suppose news from last year isn’t all that in demand ;-)
https://pluto.tv/live-tv/ gets you to the top level where you click a box near the bottom to get a bigger menu. Scroll a ways for the news cluster in the 200s or click the “news & opinion” button on the left of the big menu.
Pluto has their own branded news channel that seems to be a little left in some short watching time, but trying to be unbiased (some).
Here’s direct links to the various channels I’ve categorized as right leaning:
They have a web site:
With the present latest tag / headline:
Latest: Newsmax Again Beats Fox Business, CNBC in Ratings
Alan Dershowitz to Newsmax TV: Pennsylvania Suit Is Trump’s Strongest
This is the Glenn Beck channel. There’s a blazetv web site too, but it immediately dumps you into a push to buy membership to watch the channel… and I’m not up for $100 ticket to see if I like something.
So far, I’ve liked these folks. Seems like mostly straight news, but from a right / republican POV. Their website:
AMERICA’S VOICE IS YOUR 24/7 NEWS AND ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK
JUST REAL NEWS & HONEST VIEWS! WATCH ON DISH CH 219 · PLUTO TV CH 240 · ROKU · APPLE TV · FIRE TV
Their broadcast runs on the front page of their web site too. I did have to click the speaker icon to turn on the sound (so being polite to not blast you with sound unless you want it).
One America News Network. The Pluto channel is named “encore” and that leads me to think it might be time delayed to some extent, but I’ve no way to check that ATM. I think the show I’m watching on Wednesday said it was a Monday night, but wasn’t listening closely enough as it was the “happy talk” going to commercial patter…
The First TV
The First is an interesting channel. A bit hard to find with web searches as their name is a generic phrase used for all sorts of things… “The First News” lands you in Warsaw at a newspaper… Here’s their YouTube channel:
From which, on the “about” page, I was able to find their web address:
IIRC, this is where Bill O’Reilly landed with an occasional opinion segment. Trim the “watch” from the URL for the top page that describes them and shows their main talking heads (including O’Reilly).
Web Based Channels TBD
I’m pretty sure all those folks have channels on other media such as Roku, Amazon Fire, etc. I’ve deliberately NOT included channels on YouTube to the extent possible. I also need to spend some time on Bitchute, and the other alternative streaming services, and find some channels there to share. What I have marked right now are more “Opinion Guys I like”… not exactly news. So folks like Salty Cracker. The exception is a couple of overseas channels that are on YouTube where I need to find an alternative feed.
I’ll be adding the Tim Pool sites in here first.
My intent is that, as I find those, I’ll add them in a “Web News” section here. Things like Epoch Times (good China coverage) and NTD and… But those are more ‘one topic area’ centered. I’m pretty sure folks will not be all excited about the Indian Continent Web News talking about their view of China. But if folks want that too, I’ll add it. But that’s a longer time project as each one takes a while to find on the web (I mostly watched them on the Roku, which has died, and I need to spend time making a list again…)
Of course, TCTH:
Then Bongino has a news aggregator site:

Fifteen Years to Slow the Spread: Biden Coronavirus Adviser Calls for Return to Lockdowns
Unfortunately, I’ve never gone out of my way to find a news source with a particular leaning before. So any help here would be appreciated.
Yes, this posting will be a “Living Document” for a while as I’ve got to dig up the goods and save that data / links somewhere, so easiest is just to have a page up and add things as I (we) find them.
A DDGo search for “conservative news” gave this list, but I’ve not gone through them all yet. Some have names I know are good (like Ben Shapiro) but it takes time to vet sites:
