Now I'm looking for a site which looks for news from MULTIPLE different sites. Basically I just want somewhat organized list of all the stuff that's happening at the moment. Point is that I can easily find the same news from different places and then compare and get a different view on the same news, I don't like to rely on just one news page, bias is bad.
Yes I know I could just have five different news sites open all the time, but that's just too confusing and time consuming. One page to rule them all.
yea news.google.com. Reuters is ok but is more weighted toward markets.

I would encourage you to dismiss the skeptics.
Hmm didn't even know Google had that lol. Thanks I will check it out then!
I get my daily dose of interesting world news from Playdota.com
I think Al Jazeera English (http://www.aljazeera.com) is currently the #1 channel for impartial world news. I've been watching it more recently as they actually have in depth analysis whereas channels like BBC News (and France 24 too I guess) appear to be getting more and more wishy washy as time goes on (then again maybe I am just getting more aware of it as I get older). The BBC continually reduces stories to a mind-numbingly simple state, or in lieu of that they're reporting something so absurdly mundane to begin with anyway. On the positive side at least they're generally impartial, and there are other programs on the BBC that offer topical news in a less dumbed down form (News Night, HARDtalk(lol), BBC4 Documentaries, and even HIGNFY). Also if they're called out on not being impartial they'll typically issue a statement or an apology.
I don't think much to most of the mainstream American media organisations. I trust state funded Russia Today more than CNN for example, and it should really go without saying that FOX News is neither fair nor balanced.
Other sites I like:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/ (British - Centre/Left)
www.ft.com/ (Financial Impartial/Centre - Liberalism) (Yes this is owned by the same guy who owns FOX news)
http://www.vice.com/news (Alternative Lifestyle - Left)
http://www.economist.com/ (Financial - Liberalism)

The BBC is generally better than most American news sources, but they clearly have an agenda as well. They periodically run an article about how Indian men need smaller condoms than the international standard, so it can be a bit of a mixed bag. The New Yorker isn't really geared towards covering everything, but most of their articles are fantastic (even the ones that are on a subject you don't care about). The only downside is that you have to get a subscription.
I don't think the BBC has an agenda (at least when it comes to BBC News and what they show on it. Maybe they have a pro-multiculture agenda when it comes to employing people though). I think BBC are generally very impartial actually, and that article your talking about is many years old, however it often gets pushed into the most popular list when it goes viral on other places around the web. So it's not that it's being resubmitted, but rather that it ends up on Reddit or similar. I've seen it there half a dozen times now. The only time I've really seen BBC News having a noticeable bias on something non-trivial was the South Ossetia crisis, and even then it was only for the first week or so before they started giving a more balanced picture.
And yes for all the short comings it's still leagues better than almost all of what America has to offer (sorry, America).

BBC ignoring TrapWire controversy. Not sure if they don't think it's important or something else.
