Like /u/ngram11 said I think the NPR works pretty well. It receives some government funding but is mostly funded through charitable donations. This can be problematic too though. Journalism can be expensive and contrary to popular belief NPR isn't rolling in the dough. That's why I think it's important to have a blend. Ultimately though I'm becoming less interested in most "News". I'm not sure how beneficial it is to my understanding of subjects. Things are complicated and a 2 minute segment on why the recent elections in India are such a big deal probably isn't going to do it justice. I'm starting to shy away from paying close attention to the daily news cycle and waiting for the long form articles that explain the fine detail of the story.
