I have found myself get emotionally worked up on news reporting and would highly prefer to avoid news altogether as this heavily impacts my ability to work productively. For work reasons however there is a need to stay up to date with news events.
I have looked into the Economist (which while often well researched also features a load of opinion and fear mongering), Janes (which unfortunately has reduced itself to military intelligence reports) and Stratfor.
What other potential sources of plain news (definition below) are there?
- Free of charge or paid
- No narration
- No opinion pieces
- No dramatization
- "Boring" facts, numbers and backgrounds
