Al Jazeera, i would argue, despite their state funding, has far higher journalistic content than RT. But yeah i guess any news source is reliable enough, like if you wanna to know the basic facts of world events: there was a terrorist attack here, markets crashed over here etc. But even then, all major news outlets get their stuff from Reuters.

But i guess i get what you mean, i feel the same about Telesur, they have good coverage of events in latin america: outside of Venezuala, just not good for their domestic stuff.

The main problem i have with RT is that people do, in fact, get slanted ass coverage of events that are directly related to Russian interests: namely the war on Syria, and people prefer RT than other outlets because it appears to have this explicit leftist influence.
