Unbiased...well, mostly

I read a piece that discussed the lengths to which the News Nation writers, editors, and anchors had gone to try to provide unbiased production. It was impressive preparation, and for the most part, it works. However, tonight I ran across an AP story published verbatim in the NNN app. It was written using clearly biased and pejorative language—not cable-news extremist, but biased—made all the more obvious by the relative neutrality of News Nation’s native stories. I was sorry to see that in an app that prides itself on avoiding coloration of the news. I hope the News Nation staff will rewrite such stories, or produce them in house, in the future.

Finally Real News on TV

I am giving this 5 stars, even though there are a few annoying issues with the app, because I am so happy that there is a new unbiased news source and I’m sure they will work out the issues. I can’t stand watching the other, so called “news” networks, such as CNN, Fox News and MSNBC because they contain very little news content and it’s mostly opinion with grandstanding and sometimes inaccurate information. I hope that News Nation succeeds and expands to a 24 hour news channel as right now they only offer live programming during evenings.

I do have a few issues:

* I use it on an iPad and it doesn’t rotate the screen to landscape until I start live video
* It keeps prompting me for my provider’s login information (most apps only make you authenticate once in a while, but not almost every time you use it). This might have been fixed because it didn’t just prompt me again.
* Live video doesn’t minimize to the corner when you change to another app, like most other video apps.

Excited for this app

I know this app and network is brand new, but it’s off to a great start. It’s easy to navigate and not buggy, and the content is straightforward and not full of sensational headlines or click-bait style articles (which is exactly what the world needs more of!)

One feature I hope to see in the future is a way to customize a newsfeed. I like scrolling through headlines and topics most relevant to me in one spot vs navigating around and filtering each time I open the app. I also hope the weather section continues to expand its details so I can get rid of the terrible weather apps I otherwise have to suffer through.
