More selective reporting

Some info is good but it leans heavily on the fear mongering side... disappointing.

Baised.

Solid reporting at first but now... come on with the doom and gloom. There are a lot of positive things happening as well. Look for that. Also, I’m no Trump fan but really... you’re going to blame people not wanting to wear masks on Trump??? No, people don’t have minds of their own. Of course not.

Unbiased Objective and Ethical Reporting

This is an excellent and valuable resource. It’s balanced, objective and factual.

Ignore the campaign of poor reviews from the ignorant trolls. I have no idea why they assert that there is any bias in what is reported here.
