Description

Independent news you can trust.

OptOut is a free news aggregation app that brings you the best of independent media. Read, listen to, and watch news content from financially independent sources—news you won’t find anywhere else.

NEWS WITHOUT CORPORATE BIAS
All content comes from news outlets that are financially independent. No corporate owners. No institutional bias. No conflicts of interest.

OVERLOOKED STORIES THAT MATTER
We feature investigative reporting and stories about climate, democracy, justice, labor, and other important topics. We have a special focus on voices traditionally underrepresented in the media industry.

CURATED BY JOURNALISTS
A diverse team of experienced journalists hand-curates the news of the day, not corporate algorithms designed to boost profitable content.

PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE
Follow outlets and individual journalists to create your own personalized feed.

PROTECTING YOUR DATA
OptOut respects your privacy by design and does not sell your preferences or browsing history to advertising firms.

A NONPROFIT RUN BY JOURNALISTS
This app is a project of the OptOut Media Foundation, a nonprofit charity founded and led by journalists, not Big Tech. We’re funded by grants and by you, our audience, not corporations or Wall Street.

Opt Out of the corporate media. Opt in to independent news you can trust.

Stories I can’t find elsewhere

As someone who used to read corporate media, this app has made me realize just how many important stories and perspectives generally get overlooked. With this, I feel so much more informed, frankly!

Great alternative for news

The app and stories are great. One complaint I have is with the app. I get notifications on different stories, but when I click on the notification I’m sent to the Home Screen of the app instead of the specific story. This kind of kills interest because a lot of times, a specific story piques my interest, but then I don’t want to scroll through to search for that story. Instead. Just have the notification linked to the story it notified me of.

Really slick app

This is way better than other news apps I’ve used. It’s clean, simple, and does a great job of integrating podcasts and videos—even livestreams! Plus, it’s independent news, not corporate media. Definitely download this!
