I have given up on Google News--any suggestions?

I've had it with Google News! Even when I customize it--as far as it will let anyone--it subjects me to that onerous "fast flip", frames around news stories, headlines that I don't want, "spotlight", "recent", "spotlight video" and "most shared" all of which I could not care less about. I've looked and there's no way to get rid of them so I'm LEAVING!!! So, what news source do you like? I want unadorned news, as unbiased as possible with no bells and whistles or junk, no videos (I can read, thank you!), no Hollywood gossip and NO sports--or the option to turn all that crap off. Any suggestions? I'm at Bing right now but isn't that part of Google?

I like one we have here called Today news. you can subscribe to it and pretty well get all your news you want. i havent looked into BBC like others have suggested. maybe its better. theres also news at cox when i log in. thats our internet provider.

Honestly, 90% of my News, is the Television...and I do subscribe to CBC on the net, but I think I have a built in "filter" for all the political rhetoric! I have not used any other "internet" source of News, therefore can't comment on their viability! I would ask tho, if it is anything like Canada..each source has it's own "political leanings" and one just has to be aware of it, and take it with a grain of salt...and I do remind, I am speaking of Canada! Take care!

I don't like television news because all the "reporters" seem to have their own way to slant the story here in the U.S. I just watch the local news. There are a couple people recommended BBC for world news and I'm going to try it this week.

I could be wrong...but, I think Canada's CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Co.,) is fashioned after the BBC, which is the British Broadcasting Corp. as Canada as a child, fashioned much after the British. It, the CBC, is government owned, and so I wonder about the BBC! Being government owned, of course, the political flavour of the day, is respected..so NEWS is slanted! I know my facts about Canada, are right..as right now we are embroiled in a battle to save this "somewhat" public system...as the current Conservative government is not in favour of it! Cheers!
