    There aren't always two sides to an issue. Some of the news channels realized this- when 99% of scientists say global warming is happening, and 1% says its not, and they had one person from each "side" on for an interview, it gave the impression that the sides were equally represented among scientists. That misled the viewers. So now, many sources try to represent the truth, and what most experts agree on.

    National Public Radio news is consistently year after year recognized for having journalism more strongly fact based then other news outlets. As another respondent notes, that isn't quite the same thing as "both sides of an issue." You're not going to hear "Spherical earth or flat earth?" presented as if "both sides" have equally valid positions on NPR. But you might hear the verifiable fact that this or that group supports a flat earth view based on their interpretation of the Bible. 

    Also on NPR you may not hear breaking news. Instead you'll hear something like "Many news outlets are reporting ___; NPR is investigating but as yet neither confirms nor discredits ___."  

    When there are comparisons of how well informed are the viewers/listeners/readers of various information sources, NPR listeners consistently place at the top.
