  • Red alert! Shields up.....Buster to Bullseye woes...
    Went to news.google.com and then a fresh tab to dnsleaktest.com and now my dns server list crept to 2 and one belongs to google. - Source: Reddit / 4 days ago
  • For a person who is sick of Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, etc. What is a good news source you would recommend?
    Reading the news is a little more palatable. I usually look at a combination of sites/sources, or just go to a news aggregator like news.google.com. I like to skim the headlines and then I dive deeper on the ones that seem most interesting/relevant to me. - Source: Reddit / 6 days ago
  • Request for userscript or CSS to fix Google News to old compact non-boxy design
    So it looks like Google has once again changed Google News search results on Desktop web - (not to be confused with news.google.com). I cannot stand using it as it shows only 3 articles on the entire page. - Source: Reddit / 7 days ago
  • Is there a direct URL for the Startpage.com news tab?
    Https://news.google.com and https://www.bing.com/news go directly to their respective news search tabs. - Source: Reddit / 9 days ago

It's not just that the detail is... - Source: Hacker News / 23 days ago
  • Lauren Boebert is facing serious allegations of financial corruption
    Put the search term Lauren Boebert into news.google.com and the only "news" channel NOT reporting this story if Fox. If that's not funny I don't know what is! - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • What happened to news articles?
    Go to news.google.com - type in "climate" or "drought" or "floods" or "heat wave". Or if you happen to know a country that's in trouble right now, just search the name. They are usually high quality sources. Skim the article, copy/paste. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Reminder that Google News is full of Anti-Iranian propaganda outlets
    It annoys that I cant do a quick search on news.google.com without being given almost exclusively regime change results. I notice more propaganda when I use Iran IP, rather than a VPN by the way. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • T-Mobile Removing Problematic Feature From 1.5 Million Accounts โ€“ The T-Mo Report
    Lol what? I mean I can't say I'm a fan of clickbait headlines, but this is far from the first time they've been used in an article ever - Google News themselves have plenty of examples there. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
