Certainly doesn't help to pick two right-leaning sources, anyway. I've never gotten where this whole idea that NPR is a liberal outlet comes from.

I don't know why anyone would be regularly consuming any such obviously/strongly biased sources. I'd be concerned that spending too much time amongst poor journalism and extreme views, they might just start to seem more 'normal' or 'acceptable' when they are really potentially very damaging/hurtful our (your?) society as a whole.

Certainly, sample some of it from time to time, to get a feel for what people are consuming, but there are more sensible options. For example, here in Australia I read a mix of The Age (moderate left bias) and the Australian (moderate right bias), and also sometimes the Australian Financial Review (surprisingly centrist, pleasantly free of sensationalism).
