Completely biased anti trump

***RESPONSE TO DEVELOPERS REPLY. That’s a lame canned response. So you are admitting that the default is to have biased left news and if we would like we can customize so it’s more balanced! Wow. Why not make it balanced and neutral like you claim it is? You not at all what you claim to be and unbiased.

I was hoping it would be not be another source that is biased left or right but by default it was showing mostly anti trump stories. Just want news that is not picked to support your side whether left or right or otherwise. This was another news aggregator favoring their “side”. Deleted ...

News in a nutshell....

Really enjoy keeping up with the news, bit by bit. Hopefully you will never have any of the orange ones “fake news”

All in One!

Smart News scans the top journalist web-sites to bring you all the news that’s fit to print! Excellent resource for all your mind numbing needs!
