It’s been a crazy ride since the pandemic, election, and economic woes. The news outlets have been nothing less than fear-mongering, sensationalism, and politically slanted at best. Finding a good news source without all the ‘opinions’ has been challenging, to say the least. To save my sanity, I chose to avoid all news outlets completely. But that’s not good either. I need to stay informed.
Recently I found 1440 Daily Digest. * Their motto reads:
Why 1440? The printing press was invented in the year 1440, spreading knowledge to the masses and changing the course of history. Guess what else? There are 1,440 minutes in a day and every one is precious. That’s why we scour hundreds of sources every day to provide a concise, comprehensive, and objective view of what’s happening in the world.
At first, I was skeptical. Lots of news outlets say they are unbiased, but they aren’t. This news outlet is the real deal. After several weeks, I can honestly say it’s all been ‘just the news’. Once a day it lands in my email, and I can pick and choose what I need and/or want to read. It reports all the news good or bad, without political slant or opinion. They include the ‘need to know’ news stories, sports and entertainment, science and technology, business and markets, world news and politics as well as some ‘feel-good’ stories at the end. They also provide links if you want to delve into news articles further.
Hmmm…concise, comprehensive, and objective news. What a concept.
Check it out here* and let me know what you think.
