It's a well-known fact that most of the news we receive is biased, inflammatory and sometimes even false. At this point watching or reading the news to gain any kind of information seems ridiculous. But at the same time, we can't be oblivious to what's going on.

So what do we do? Thankfully, there are some resources we can use for this purpose-


Newsvoice is a website that's on a mission to fix the news. It displays a personalized news feed by aggregating major news sites, as well as international and independent media. Each news story shows multiple perspectives and sources, empowering you to make more conscious decisions of what you read and trust. You can also download the Newsvoice app at playstore.


Scriberr is a nonpartisan multimedia news platform based in Los Angeles, California. Scriberr aims to report the truth fully and give all sides to controversial, political issues so that readers can decide for themselves where they align.

Ground News is a website and an app that was created to be a news destination for everyone, regardless of political ideology.
