We live in an age where we no longer receive news nightly from one of three network broadcasters. Unlike our parents, we are active consumers of media and we select our own sources of news. This fascinating infographic plots Partisan Bias against Journalistic Quality. Take a look for yourself and see where your go-to sources of news [click to enlarge].
Obviously the author of this chart has baked in plenty of subjective judgment here, but I think he or she gets it mostly right. I especially appreciate the “Just no.” commentary for the outlets on the bottom right. If you

Wow, so many Fake News stories today. No matter what I do or say, they will not write or speak truth. The Fake News Media is out of control!

p.s. I could not locate the ownership information for this chart. If anyone can supply that information, I will make sure to properly credit the author.
