Indian News channels have became cheap entertainment channels and show any kind of news that can only appeal to the below 10 IQ people. This calls for a poll on which news channel do CEans think is the most authentic and unbiased news channel in India?

I'm not adding poll as I'm not clear about the options. In my opinion, Times Now is one of the best channels with not crappy news.

You may report regional channels as well.
@Ankita Katdare • 26 Apr, 2011 • 2 likes Times Now is really an incredible channel. They are doing a great job in bringing out non-tampered, true news to the viewers. I hope that they don't get bought by some political party. (or may be they already are 😐 )
In Marathi, I think 'Star-majha' gives good news. Then there is IBN Lokmat. I don't have an idea about their authenticity though.
@Kaustubh Katdare • 26 Apr, 2011 The 'Lokmat', in my opinion is influenced by Congress. Their founder has connections with Congress party officials. Not sure about this though 😐
@CIVILPRINCESS • 26 Apr, 2011 i thought CNNIBN was good in reporting news 😐
@Mr.Don • 26 Apr, 2011 Yes CNN IBN is the best in my opinion.
@Ankita Katdare • 19 Oct, 2015 • 1 like I wonder if people still think that 'Times Now' is the most unbiased news channel in India. It is heavily dependent on Arnab Goswami for its popularity.
CNN-IBN seems to be a comparatively professional.
NDTV is biased towards UPA/Congress, same goes for ABP.

I would rely on DD news because they show the facts as they are, unaltered. However, since it is controlled by the state, that's the only thing you see there. Then there's also -Lok Sabha TV and Rajya Sabha TV that one can trust for facts.

I haven;t watched Zee News and India TV (which some say is biased towards BJP thanks to Rajat Sharma). How is News Nation, NewsX,ETNow and News 24? Anyone folllowing these?
@Anoop Kumar • 19 Oct, 2015 • 2 likes I stopped watching news channels exclusively unless I want some entertainment.
Every news channel is converting to "debate" hosting with a propaganda and suck at everything.
I only watch news channel in morning for quick top 20/100 or any fastest news on earth, just to get a idea what's going on.

There cannot be an unbiased news channel!

Frankly speaking, there cannot be a totally unbiased news source anywhere in the world. The news business needs money to keep its reporting live and pay the reporters. Because the readers are not willing to pay for the news content, news publications have to rely on advertisements.

The advertisers, may have their own agenda. The biggest advertisers often are government or mega corporates that are associated with political parties in India. 

There were hopes from the social media; however it's being run by those who can manipulate the messages being conveyed. 

Trust me, unless the news publications add their own salt and pepper to the news - no one would really want to read the news or even view the news. 

News runs on the basic human emotion - 'fear' or 'excitement'. If you notice any headline - it will either make you excited or instill fear of some kind. The same goes for all the advertisements as well. 

I personally watch news channels ONLY when there's mega election coming up. Otherwise, it's all regular crap being aird 24x7.

I think none, but @Kaustubh Is this thread started today? If yes thats fine , but if not why I see today's date in the first post? and I dont see dates for any of subsequent replies?

@Kaustubh Katdare • 12 Sep, 2018

The dates reflect the time at which discussions was updated. We found out that there's no point in keeping the 'thread start' date. Instead, we only note the time it was last updated.

It's 2020 and things have not changed at all since last few year. If at all, TV news channels have become more biased than ever before. These days, looking at the news channels for not more than 5-10 minutes, one can immediately tell what wing it is leaning towards. I am guessing it's not just true for India, but the whole world.

One would have imagined to look towards internet for unbiased news, but all internet news sources that claim to be 'authentic' are seen to be biased. Pick any portal of your choice and try this for yourself.

I'm all ears if anyone has a different opinion than this. Would love to know if there's any unbiased news source that you follow. Pour in your comments!

@Sarathkumar Chandrasekaran • 28 Jan, 2020

In 2020 social media controls everything from music to news. Twitter has emerged as one of the top faster news feeders by independent twitterers.I agree that the trust is low but it is faster than anything as far as now

@Ram Pokhrel • 21 Apr, 2020

You all must try zion news as i haven't found any influence of any biased ideology in this channel ...  and must follow anshul saxena on twitter
