Newsy is Fast Becoming My Favorite Source for News
I found Newsy while channel surfing on cable TV. At first, I wasn’t quite sure what I thought of their stripped down newscasts - not overloaded with unnecessary graphics and information. However, within a few short months Newsy has become one of my most watched news networks.
Newsy reminds me of what news was like in the mid twentieth century (1950s-1960s) when news broadcasts were on black and white TV. Nothing fancy, just the news, and opinions were clearly noted as such.
I’ve been watching Newsy on cable TV and via this app. The simplicity of their newsroom set is a welcome change from the noise being spewed on most other networks. Keep up the good work. I’d give you more than 5 stars if I could.
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!
Trusted news source
I did a class in undergrad titled “Media, Politics, and Propaganda”. The primary focus of class work was how media influences thinking, not only in what is carried as “newsworthy” but also what isn’t, and how these choices influence political thinking and discourse within society.
For those who aren’t aware, “Public Relations” and “Influence” are the watered down, “politically correct” terms for the concept most laypeople call propaganda.
I’ve found nothing from this news service to indicate biased reporting - that doesn’t mean it’s not possible, but it means that to a somewhat educated eye, it’s not completely obvious the way other providers are.
