Is there is such thing as national US news site that is not politically biased?

I won't lie; most of the news I receive is by word of mouth (mostly memes on Telegram or the clover site) or from AP Radio News. I used to read BBC in 2016. I will go ahead and drop Drudge Report here. Local news is more useful to me; most of it I heard when I was working as a cable guy.
realclearpolitics has a newsfeed that posts top news from both conservative and liberal sources. the real reward of following this type of mixed source for a while is that you don't feel alienated from the half the population, but instead have a fair sense of what every side is likely to say in response to a given topic. This is turn gives you the freedom to just switch off entirely.
Wire services are as close as you're going to get. Agence France-Presse, Associated Press, Reuters. They're in the journalism business. They get news and then sell it to all of the "news" companies that then smear their bias all over it to make their readership more outraged, smug, happy, whatever emotions get them the most riled up and likely to keep coming back.
Just follow news on twitter for multiple angles
It is more useful to read news that wears its bias on its sleeve. I know that Zerohedge is %90 bullshit, but they are fast and when they get it right, they get it better than anyone, and you can tell what's true. The Financial Times and the Guardian try to hide their bias, which means that %99+ is bullshit because even when they're right, they're still lying about their skew.
Idk to be honest. I use Axios and the text version of NPR. They both seem to have a slightly left leaning.
Try Al Jazeera. I've found them to be about as unbiased as the Guardian and they stream their news channel on Youtube.
Nope, though I read Financial Times which isn't too egregious, at most pro free market / globalized economy.
No. But Associated Press is pretty good. Most other big news sources take their reports and spin it to their bias
I doubt it, I just read NHK (though it too is biased I suppose).
