Top SmartNews: Local Breaking News Reviews

  • By Samarnett14


    Downloaded because I like these types of apps to read all the news soon as I opened it I could clearly see whoever does this has a hand in the liberal agenda to destroy America it’s way obvious then I read one of their cringe worthy articles and realize they really are scared most the new generation along with older hipsters and all the career students that racked up debt on pointless wemon study degrees etc. are so afraid they’re everyone else will pay for my bills and generally lazy lifestyle don’t fear trump doesn’t even need to campaign watch and see the deplorable will show up faster than you liberals can create voters bus them in from Mexico Canada it’s not even a possible outcome to loose I been over this whole country the last year just count bumper stickers from even the last election most elections even the winners voters take them off but they’re all still on even the Hillary jail ones and I’m pretty sure she has died already or went back to her hole she came from

    Smart, direct, honest

    This is one of only 2 apps that I use for news. I prefer news that is just that: news. The feeds come from a variety of sources and one can choose what one reads. In our unhealthy news climate, there is a present danger of buckling to the insanity of fringe news from actual non-news sites that cater to a select type wishing to reinforce their agenda. This app keeps the news as it is and unfiltered. For those who only want to read their own talking points back and forth in a limited circle squeezing each other off, they can probably tweak their choices to arrive at that too, but how sad. The news is about fair coverage as it is given by long established and sincere journalists. I appreciate such a well written app and the plethora of offerings from news of all types. Please keep up the good work. Do not succumb to those tiny voices who wish to change the very definition of news.

    Good variety but with a strong left lean

    There is enough variety to see a interesting amount of news and information pieces but a larger portion of liberal left material ( I consider myself a pragmatic).Unfortunately, If you want to find a large amount of race baiting and police malfeasance it is overwhelmingly here. I usually stay away from opening these agenda stories. The generic auto response talks about adding Fox as a preference. "Hi There, Thanks for your updated review! The articles in the Top channel are refreshed regularly, so at any given time you might see more liberal or more conservative news, but ultimately our algorithms are made to provide a balanced perspective. You can easily add Fox News, The Blaze, National Review, Daily Caller, or other conservative sites by going to Discover (last tab on the right), using the search bar, and adding channels. - Nate with SmartNews" I take all right wing and left wing news stories, from Fox, CNN, Atlantic Journal with a large grain of salt. Give me a break with that generic response! Stories from more quality sources such as Wall Street Journal would be helpful. It continues to be dominant left wing race baiting, police hating “victim victim, pay retribution “ but I think that is more indicative of the mainstream popular media. I still enjoy seeing a variety of articles and avoid clicking most of the overtly biased stories. Proceed with your smart filters on.
