Unbiased, raw, and educating
As an American, it’s difficult to find an unbiased, raw, and real journalistic approach that features life as it is in the rest of the world. This is what REAL news looks like- honest coverage of topics most Americans have remained blissfully unaware of or ignorant to. Always enlightening; highlighting the struggles, trials, and tribulations of peoples in turmoil with un-scathing honesty. AJ America undoubtedly outshines media outlets such as Faux news, CNN, and NBC news. It’s a broad spectrum international news site that will open your eyes to world atrocities spanning the entirety of the globe.
Fast, accurate, least biased
I have tried a myriad of sources for my news, but they have all been opinionated. Aljazeera has also got one of the most impressive turnarounds for finding and reporting news stories as they occur. Still take some articles with a grain of salt, if they show bias, which isn’t often, it’s very slight and it’s left leaning. Of course that’s not including their opinion articles, but those are clearly labeled. Aljazeera also covers a variety of different world issues which makes them consistently interesting, there’s always something written about one my interests.
PS: I did wish in their opinion articles they would include some slightly more conservative ideas, especially regarding Israel. If they already offer those, I been able to sort through the stories to find any.
Thank you for all that you are...
I use 4 apps for news and this is my favorite one in many ways. Your news is raw and reality. I can select topics, or countries, or skim top stories. It has helped me avoid America’s news almost entirely and I get real facts out of you about everyone instead of the selfish naive land of America. Thank you for all that you are... Keep improving and being the voice we need. Even my friends are starting to use this app often.
If you like this app download the SCMP app (South China Morning Post) as well.
I use NPR and The Atlantic as well for more sophisticated topics about the US.
