If we leave biased commentary out, we'd have to move NBC, ABC, and NPR among others to untrustworthy.
Huh? Did I read that right?
I wrote it wrong. It was supposed to say if we "include" commentary.

I suggest that we simply focus on hard news reporting with a disclaimer.
The following sites are considered to be trustworthy news sources when it comes to reporting defense and world events.
Etc etc

I'm good with that. I'll come up with something and add it to the main post tonight or tomorrow, then delete all the conversation posts. You okay with that?

Leave the commentary posts. Not only does it let people know something has been added, but it also shows the pains we have gone through to avoid bias.

Okay, I have reorganized slightly, with the focus being on defense related stories, breaking news, and world events. I have also added further disclaimers about quoting sources and/or obtaining independent verification.

Please review to see if I missed anything or if I placed a news source in the wrong category.

Thank you, sir. Based on the descriptions, do you think any of the current entries need moved?

Also, for the love of all that is good, as a web developer I implore you guys to use the Trusted, Mostly Trusted, Mostly Untrusted, and Untrusted headers in a way similar to what I have here. You can see more information at a glance.

If you give me the information I can edit and format it tomorrow.
Edited the format to make it more legible. What do you think?
