Get the news on topics of interest without the distractions of click-bait, or algorithm-generated links with this current-events collection generated by humans. Content is discovered, fact-checked, and shared from 9 am to 9 pm from sources including Fox News, NPR, CNN, Politico, and more. Each article is summarized and linked in the feed. The most helpful feature, especially for families trying to understand the news together, is the FAQ for each topic explaining the background and common questions surrounding the topic. At the time of review, the content is limited, but it may serve as a convenient resource to compare topic-related content from a variety of sources.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
