The one website everyone needs to read (apart from WB of course)
I like to keep up with all the latest news and info. I'm a big fan of Digg, BBC news, NPR, CNN, all the usual suspects. I thought I was fairly well-versed on the places to get my information and keep me "in the know." Then a friend of mine came over to visit from England, and he gave me a gift. It was a stick of deodorant that contained no harmful heavy metals. When I asked why, he said "what, don't you read News Target?"
I flipped open my laptop and punched in the address. NewsTarget describes itself as being completely independent and impartial. True journalism, not backed by large corporate interests. Just the fact, or "information that empowers" as they put it. I started reading a few headlines. Then a few more. Before I knew it I had killed over an hour, and I was just getting started. This is a ballsy site that's blowing the whistle on everything.
One of the main problems we have here in America is the lack of a truly impartial news forum. Our news is either too right-wing (FoxNews or NewsMax for instance), way too left-wing (AirAmerica, or almost any newspaper if you believe Bill O'Reily) or worse still, it cowtows to the advertiser's best interests. Very, very rarely do you get completely impartial journalism. But NewsTarget definitely seems to be just reporting the facts, as far as I can see anyway.
This is a wonderful, often scary, but always important and thought-provoking resource of information regarding health, technology, the environment, energy and more. I didn't see any advertising as I was going through the site, which means it's either very unobtrusive or not there at all. And without advertising, and political pressure, journalists are pretty much free to write the truth and not a sanitized version of it. Sometimes the articles praise a product or service, other times they'll warn you against it.
