Ratings and Reviews
What a great news site!
I love watching Newsy stories. When I have a few minutes, shaving, etc. I’ll flip it on and learn. The stories are long enough to allow depth but not so long they get boring. The feature on climate change by Zach Tombs was fantastic. The app has some technical challenges (sometimes blank to start) so that needs ongoing work. Keep up the good job. No other site like it.
Excellent app to use for quick snaps of information and customizable to the user’s interests. No ads, that is a huge plus side to the news world, as I feel like I can trust the content is is geared to inform the consumer of both arguments, as well as provide the information needed to give the user an educated thought, while provoking the thought of finding out more.
The only reason for rating it four stars is the push notification functionality. I fine on my iPhone 8, that when I push to open it plays the same video twice at the same time with an echo. I’m watching the one, while there is another open and playing, causing an echo. That leads me to close the the app and search for the story, which can be time consuming. Otherwise, it’s an excellent way to be informed and super easy to use!
Biased just like all the rest
It’s sad to see all the reviews from the lemmings claiming Newsy as neutral or balanced. I will admit, they are smart to present the news in a very plain, no frills manner. It gives the impression that it is pure, unbiased news. But it only takes a few days of consuming their news to realize they are very much left if center. It shows how the media in general has made most of the population unaware of other points of view. People will just accept anything coming from organizations like Newsy that claim to fact check all their news. It is sad that the general population cannot even see obvious bias when it is fed to them 24 hours a day.
