Anyone know of a news website where the stories are uncensored and unedited, including photos, quotes, etc? I’m talking about legitimate news websites, not sites specifically dedicated to gore. (I already know they exist). I’ve grown weary of the TV media & popular news websites showing us what THEY THINK we should see or hear (for instance, playing recordings of 911 calls which are ridiculously “bleeped” for bad language, photos that have little black boxes or blur spots placed over them partially to block “graphic content”, etc). I want to see what happens and how it happened.
I hope someone is understanding the gist of my question!
Thanks to all.
Bookmark one US news site you reasonably trust, BBCnews, Al-Jazeera and any English-language parallel site of any European country that’s not the UK. All four will have different approaches to the news and a good image of ground truth can often be found between them.
Turn off the TV. TV news hasn’t been anything but an ad hook for decades.
Has links to over 12000 newspapers worldwide, sorted by country, and language.
Naturally the quality of the papers varies, but the site is pretty useful when something happens in say, Namibia. To get to a paper, click thru the map page.
As I read it, the OP wants the regular news, just with the burned, dead, and dismembered bodies unedited, as opposed to the gore sites that go out of their way to show guts, even if it was never news or is ten years old.
I could be wrong, but that’s the way it reads to me.
It’s less a matter of sanitized than that the BBC has not wholly remodeled itself as an advertising vehicle, which US TV news did a couple of decades ago. Soft, family-friendly news that doesn’t rile anyone up has bigger retention and ad revenue. (And yes, I am including Fox in that category. Riling people up with pointless BS doesn’t drive them away the way showing an unvarnished view of US actions and policy results does.)
The BBC has two advantages: It doesn’t have any advertisers to pander to, and for N. Americans, it gives an outsiders, reasonably disinterested, view of what’s going on over there in a language you can understand.
Almost forgot this: The BBC has to pander to the British government, because that’s where its funding comes from. Saying it’s independent is contrary to the facts, and is, in fact, precisely what a state organ would claim.

Some wild stuff, the government doesn’t want you to know. Would the gummint lie to ya?
Remember, they tried to sell you WMD in Iraq. Look how that turned out.
If it wasn’t for the Internet. We wouldn’t know “The Rest of the Story”
