theNewsCollective.org 3.0: In search of a left turn

theNewsCollective.org is a search engine and customizable feed aggregator attempting to shine a light on left-leaning journalism that the mainstream media tends to ignores.

theNewsCollective 2.0 is a customisable news aggregation and search service. You can get all your non-mainstream news at one location — customisable by a wide list of news sources.

The media algorithm today favours the popular, likeable and shareable. Real news needs to compete within an entertainment ecosystem overflowing with advertising, ‘native advertising’, sponsored content and advertising masquerading as content [See The native matrix By Felix Salmon].

If you are looking for news, views and opinions that are not ‘clickbait optimized’, that have not been tested for viral-worthiness, then there is a good chance that it will be buried in the mountains of content. Advertising & PR agencies, news editors, and even content bots are all competing for the ever-thinning online advertising dollars; and at times, they are intent on drowning out dissenting voices.

theNewsCollective attempts to highlight and give 'air time' to views that much of the advertising-sponsored corporate media often ‘wilfully’ ignores. You will find a range of independent, alternate, marginalised, even dissenting, voices here. The range is from the slightly left-of-centre to Marxist and even Anarchist. Like any list, this one is idiosyncratic too. However, you can find your own flavour by customising your sources and creating your own news feed.

The site is updated every couple of hours by pulling news from a wide variety of sources from across the world. Each individual news item gets rated by a combination of algorithmic, editorial, and user signals. The rating system, as the rest of the site is still in beta.

This is an experimental, not-for-profit, project. You can help improve it by pointing out errors, suggesting additional news sources...
