Staying in the Know
By: Britny Montano | Temecula, CA
As someone interested in our constantly evolving news, it can be hard figuring out which sources are telling the truth and what the heck is actually happening. I don’t have the time (or patience) to read a whole newspaper let alone sift through all of the media outlets claiming all the others are dishing out “fake news.” I just want to know about what’s going on without someone adding a biased opinion with it...#help.
Recently, I’ve discovered two sources for news that seem to tell it like it is and in a dialogue I can follow. The first is a podcast, NPR Politics Podcast. They have correspondences from various political sources relaying events, facts, and all with explanations. They update the show 2-3 times a week adding episodes if there is something really crazy going on that week. Of course they add in a little humor here and there so it’s not so stuffy! You can check this out wherever you already listen to podcasts.
The second is a company I can’t get enough of right now, theSkimm. They have an app you can pay for, or a free newsletter you can subscribe to. When subscribing to the newsletter you’ll get an email every morning (M-F) with an update with the days’ latest - both national and international news. The language they use reads as if your friend is group chatting about the top events happening around the world. They always include links if there’s something you’d like to read more about or need a little more background info on.
Let us know what sources you turn to for the news to get this list growing!
