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 get most of my news from the TV. I usually just listen because I'm busy with something. My husband likes CNN, but I prefer Fox.

I like Fox, it's as objective as any TV news I've seen. CNN slants their stories more and both stations leave out facts that could slant the stories one way or the other. I like written journalism the best.

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.

The only Today news I can find is from the Today show, which is very slanted. I'm trying BBC this week, it has always seemed to be largely unbiased. Journalism is nothing like it used to be!

I strictly view BBC like P1kef1sh. I like how they look at sides of stories. I may at times glance at my Comcast news section but religiously am stuck with BBC!

I'll make a bookmark for them. While I'm interested in news here in the U.S., I really want an unbiased view of the world news. Thanks!

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!
