Euronews Focused on Climate Change Propaganda, not Coronavirus News

I have watched Euronews for years. During the greatest crisis of our times, they are focused on selling climate change over presenting current news on the coronavirus in Europe. With the virus daily gaining ground, Euronews has less English feeds than ever before, and what little they have is stretching back 10 years to start selling "climate migrants", which is more bogus propaganda. Clearly they are not a serious news outlet.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Though this site wasn't created specifically for kids, it does provide viewers with an alternative news source to supplement mainstream media. Euronews attempts to present a different take on current events, which is increasingly important in an ever-shrinking, ever-connected world. Taking into consideration multiple perspectives and making comparisons between how events are represented by different news sources are valuable skills for kids to develop. For example, kids can read about a world event on both euronews and in the New York Times. What's also nice is that the language-translation feature could be beneficial to families with non-English speakers or kids who are trying to learn another language. The downsides are that the content can potentially be a bit dry -- news doesn't always interest everyone, and it may be difficult to gain a certain amount of perspective on why another country feels one way about a topic that Americans may feel completely different about. But for parents and kids who are looking for a different perspective on current events, as well as potential challenges to beliefs that could spur healthy debate in the home and at school, euronews could be a great source.

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.
