Newsy.com: where multiple media perspectives are featured

September 28, 2009 | By | Reply More

Newsy.com is a website with a nice twist. The site chooses individual stories and then examines them from the perspectives of various news organizations and websites. I’ve watched a few of newsy.com’s featured stories, and I find this approach promising.  By featuring a story from the perspectives of multiple news organizations, newsy.com is, in effect, telling us news about news-makers (in addition to telling us the news).  Here’s an excerpt from Newsy.com’s about page:

Newsy.com takes a step back to show how the world’s news organizations are reporting a story – providing an unprecedented global and macro point of view.  You’ll find CNN right next to Al Jazeera, the BBC right next to ABC. Newsy.com  also covers major newspapers, news magazines as well as top blogs from around the world.

Here’s a recent Newsy.com story that asks the question whether FOX News went over the line by promoting a demonstration.  Here’s another recent story discussing the new Wikipedia policy that allows only Wikipedia in-house editors to edit articles about living people.
