All the papers mags and journals I read, or would like to say that I read, or at least read the headlines...easy to arrange the ones you want. I have smithsonian, natl geo, time, npr,the nation,discover, nytimes, international news, bbc...Even found my local paper . Had no problem getting "the complete story" to load. It just took a full second and a half to do so. Big deal! Its loading a full newstory from a different online source and formatting it to your screen! Beautiful graphics, easy to understand format, free!

Great format, poor content selection

I don't understand their selection algorithms. You're as likely to get political diatribes as actual news or analysis in the "Top 25" selections, even in science and tech feeds. Overwhelming extreme liberal bias in the selected "news" stories. This is a great service...

Overwhelming extreme liberal bias in the selected "news" stories. This is a great service if you're a raging fan of Nancy Pelosi or Janeane Garafalo but horrible if you have more than 2 functional brain cells.
