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.

Outdated Style, No Opt-out for Autoplay Videos

I watch NewsNation on a daily basis, but I expected a bit more from their app. It is clunky, ad-heavy, and forces video playback when you simply want to read an article. There is no option to remove automatic video playback, and it covers half the screen as you try to read an article. Also, in the TV provider section, there is no option for streaming or satellite providers (e.g., YouTubeTV, Dish, Directv). However, they list every no-name cable provider you’d ever think of. I don’t understand that one at all. Why ignore all of us who watch you on streaming or satellite platforms? (I imagine that is the majority of your viewership!) If they want to gain users, the app must be more streamlined, user friendly, and look more like their TV channel - and less like an outdated local news channel app, which I am guessing is what Nexstar used as their basis for this app.


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.
