Trying to find unbiased news where you just want to know what happened, who did it and the potential motive has become an increasingly difficult thing to do in today’s time.
I know this seems hard to believe considering how connected we are with the internet and passing information is as quick and easy as it’s ever been.
Well, in that retrospect yes it has become easy to get information passed along insanely easily/quickly but as the main issue now is not getting the ability to actually receive news but actually receive news that is not being pushed on with an agenda behind it.
This agenda can be something so subtle as how the words used in the title of an article are arranged or maybe which picture is used when showing a victim/attacker or even both.
I don’t know about you but I can think for myself so I just want to hear the facts and let me conclude my own opinion on the matter.
I don’t need ‘news’ telling me their opinion on the matter and as I’ve found out, finding an actual source for non-biased news actually took some looking to find.
This is why I’m writing this article to help, so who find yourself in that position I was at to find some sources you can look to.
One America News Network (OAN)
Currently the best option I’ve found to get great fact based actually news, you know like you would expect a news origination to provide is One America News Network or OAN.
I’ve only recently found out about them a month or so ago but it has been a great mental relief to know if I ever want to learn about what’s going on (usually first thing ever morning) I can just check their website.
In terms of age they’re a fairly young network, with them being launched on July 4, 2013, launched on Independence Day that’s a good sign in my opinion!
I couldn’t be happier with the overall network in terms of the information they provide and how quick they are with it!
With that being said there are a few downsides to them if you can even call it that.
Mainly, they don’t have as much availability of where to get their actual live broadcast compared to other news originations.
I sense this quickly becoming less of a factor as I see how much of a need there is for actual unbiased news out there with only a few options to find it, this is where I can see OANs growth really taking off in the coming years.
- Very Quick On Breaking News
- No Opinionated Spin On The News
- Great Website That Is Clean & Easy To Locate News By Categories
- Not As Easily Accessible On TV As Other News Networks (See Explanation Below)
- No Phone App For Website View
The pros are pretty much self-explanatory so I’ll leave that alone but I will elaborate what I mean on the cons.
As I type this not every cable network covers their broadcast, which is contributed to more of them still being somewhat new (as far as network programs go) in my opinion.
They’ve been making a huge push on widening their coverage from what I’ve read, so this can all be something that’s taken care of in the near future.
OAN does have the option where you can watch it on services like Roku, Apple TV & Amazon Fire TV which do wonders for connecting with youngish generation as they (we) have taken to these devices.
Older generations will usually have trouble getting this set up which makes it slightly more difficult to reach that target demographic.
As far as the app, they do have it for where you can use the app to watch their coverage but I was meaning for of an app which was dedicated for viewing their website.
This isn’t a major issue as their website is mobile responsive but it’s one of those things that would just be nice to have at some point.
I’ll wrap up this article here for now but keep checking back because I will continue to update this post as I come across new sources or potentially remove ones if I find them becoming said sources to be going the way of the current MSM ‘news’.
If you have any sources that you think might be a good fit for this article, then feel free to send me an email letting me know about them so I can give them a look.
