Finally, Some Real New Reporting About the White House

Would you trust your great-grandmother to recommend your next smartphone? You might if she was a tech insider involved in the development of the technology. However, if she was more Luddite about electronics, you probably would not value her opinion on your next phone. This also applies to political news. Everyone has an opinion about politics, but this is also where facts can break down. To get a more balanced report of what our president is up to, I go to the Trump News feed website. I can filter my article sources from many news agencies, but I do not. What I do is look through all the articles and read as much as I can about the same topic over and over again.

I am surprised every time with the subtle and even glaring differences in reporting the same news event as it comes from two different journalists or news agencies. If I filter according to just the AP for my first read, I can also then pick out who is just writing based on other journalist gathering of the facts. That is not real reporting to me. I prefer to hear it first from those who were there. I like to read it first from journalists who did the interviews or sourced the facts. This cuts down on the amount of digging I need to do to get to the real facts.

The Trump News feed is a cool place to take a look at the same stories as published by different journalists. You also do not have to hunt around to find a report on something in the White House that you want to catch up on. Of course though, you might not find lame reporting of high heels in flood zones. How is that even news? I appreciate real reporting of relevant news.
