We believe our articles provide a solid foundation before reading a traditional news article. But that's our opinion- go see for yourself!
Every article is written in bullet notation to give you a straightforward breakdown.
We always include two sides to the story. That way, you are the fully informed and up-to-date.
These two sides may be:
Pro means facts or opinions that could be good.
Con means facts or opinions that could be bad.
Facts are facts.
Opinions are not facts.
They are neither right nor wrong.
Opinions are simply what someone might believe.
Sometimes, people use facts to support their opinions.
We believe everyone requires multiple ways to access information. So read, click, listen, or watch what you need to get all the facts.
We highly recommend you do it all! Not only is it more engaging, but you're also asking your brain to operate and absorb knowledge in different ways. This has been shown to improve your memory and comprehension of the content.
All articles are designed to be short and sweet.
