News for those who doubt the legacy media

For some time I've been pondering a post listing websites for my conservative friends who would like a perspective other than that offered up by the mainstream media.

Now Harvard University has done it for me. Doug Ross reports:
You won't believe the 50 websites Harvard has labeled "Fake News."

Your betters at the Harvard University Library have published a guide to "Fake News Sites" that includes a bevy of real news sites that happen to lean right. Among them: the Heritage Foundation, Conservative Review, and Wikileaks, the latter of which has revealed (whether you agree with its approach or not) some very real news indeed.

This, my friends, is a dangerous game. Just as Snopes and Politifact are reliable Democrat public relations outlets (remember when the latter played both sides on ‘If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep It’?), anyone claiming to be an arbiter of truth is inherently suspect. 
Because progressives always get it wrong, I'll repeat. The market is the only arbiter for media. The marketplace of ideas dictates who wins and loses. 
Based upon a simple comparison of ratings, MSNBC and CNN are considered very, very fake news when it lines up against Fox News. And which means National Public Radio is also faux news. 
Some here's my list of the top 50 sites labeled by Harvard as 'False, Misleading, Clickbait-y, and Satirical “News” Sources':
