TBH that's pretty much the whole problem in the UK right now. The press very polarised and mostly spouting the political opinion of whoever owns it, or a least as much of the owner's opinion as they know they can get away with. We may rank OK in terms of "press freedom", but that's not the same thing as press balance.

You can sort today's papers fairly accurately with the following test:

Pro Brexit: Main headlines about the cap of the number of people who can meet indoors
Anti-Brexit: Main headline is about the UK's threat to break the law.
More likely to report Soap-Opera Story lines as real news than actual real news:
Anything with a pun in the headline. The "i" might be an outlier, I don't think I've ever read it. The Independent (it's sister paper) seems to be the least nuts
Bonkers: Main headline is about Jammie Dodgers.

If you want something more considered you might want to try "Private Eye"- it's 50% satirical (but those parts are normally very funny) and only comes out once a fortnight.
KeithBarrow.net[^] - It might not be very good, but at least it is free!
