So I started reading the New York Times online more.. AFTER CNN told me that they were putting up a paywall. Realized I actually like internet news. They tend to be more detailed than our terrible news networks in America.. I've been looking for a good alternative.. I'm not going to argue whether or not New York Times is worth paying for. The fact is, I'm struggling to afford groceries, so I don't think I will be able to pay $15 a month for a newspaper. I can bypass the paywall easily, I just don't like the idea that I even have to do that. I want an alternative that actually has reporters on the ground with most of the stories that they report on.. nothing like my local Columbus Dispatch which just copies AP articles. I hate local news. I want something that's pretty fast in their news. Don't want to see my television saying something, 5 hours later, the website updates. I want something that's on the same speed so I know that when I'm not near a TV, I'm up to date as everyone else. I wouldn't mind if they are not an American based news site (they're usually great). As long as when it comes to politics, they know what they're talking about. I tried CNN.com but it's slow to update, flooded with ads and irrelevant articles, and hides latest news below the front page pictures without a timestamp. You have to really know what you're looking for before finding an article. I saw on tv that NATO took control of no fly zone. Ctrl+F, found it hidden between old articles with a tiny font. They also lack details in their articles. It's straight to the point and nonsense. Also, they have too many videos. I don't feel like sitting down, clicking a video, watching a 30 second mattress ad, then seeing a news report. I want to read articles. I looked at Reuters, but then I heard that they tend to have a policy to not use objective language, even the word "terrorism".. so it makes me feel uncomfortable that I may not be getting everything I want. I don't trust anything Rupert Murdoch does. He gives the message that Fox News is fair & balanced, at the same time telling those that want to hear it that it's also a Conservative outlet, when you all know it's not fair. I've been looking for myself, but I kind of want other people's ideas. Helps me make a better decision. So far, I tried Washington Post, LA Times, Reuters, BBC, Al Jazeera English.. I really can't make a choice by myself.
