In the fake news era...


I have been a new "junkie" for all of my adult life. I'm old enough at nearly 70 years of age when journalists were held at the top of the list of most respected vocations.

I'm not sure when the decline started. I do know it predates President Trump's "fake news" rants. The news is not fake. By its very name news cannot be "fake". Unfortunately what is being presented anymore is not news but more akin to PR releases or infomercials. The facts "might" be there but you have to glean the facts from the rhetoric.

Old school journalism has lost its way. It's neither fake nor simply the facts. Both sides slant the news to back their viewpoint instead of allowing their readership or viewers to have the facts and make up their own minds.

I've deleted all of my various "news" apps except for the two offerings by Al Jazeera. I find that they have no axe to grind. They've no vested interest in anything other than old school reportage. Despite their being headquartered in Qatar, I've seen no Islamic slant to reporting on the state of affairs of the region. Remarkable as they are closer to the fire.

If other news sources remember what their mission is I'll add their apps but for the time being it's relatively small Al Jazeera that I'll depend on for news without bias.

This is true journalism


Since Al Jazeera closed its broadcast news in the US, this app has become a reliable substitute to the largely skewed domestic propaganda. I have been pleasantly surprised by the balanced approach with which Al Jazeera presents world coverage of the news. They are not swayed by national, religious or other parochial interests, a standard that even the world's purported democratic leader finds difficult to attain. It is little wonder they are hated by Arab and Western countries alike, especially countries whose hypocritical actions frequently place them in AJ's crosshairs. Keep reporting the news and we will keep reading and sharing them.

Amazing Unbiased truthful reporting

Octet to cat

Apart from the HQ being based outside the Anglo-American sphere of influence, this news station simply speaks truth to power despite constant bombardment (its headquarters and journalists where literally attacked) from dictatorial regiems. Don’t listen to those you say this is fake news. Just give it a try. As an African I find it the best most current most objective news source that does not contain any ulterior motives. The app could have a nicer UI but apart from that even the app is of a high standard.
