United Networks News

When it comes to news, I have come to realize that the BBC, Reuters, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Al-Jazeera and several other sources languish in the shadows when compared to something called United Networks News, a site a friend passed along a while back.

No frills, no pictures, no ads ... just a list of one-liner links to stories. But more than just the stories of enormous import, there are stories from all sorts of sources and touching on all kinds of topics. Kings and queens stand cheek-by-jowl with babies with lollipops. Technology is as possible as politics which in turn is as possible as social trends or speedy cars or economics or Hollywood boobs.

This, for my money, is a news source worth crediting. It doesn't whine or inveigle or spread its legs for the latest feeding frenzy ... it just offers. It doesn't sneak in coded back doors to bring up stories that I would "be interested in."

I like it.
