Often, people who are sensitive get upset when they read the daily news. Of course, it’s important to know what’s going on in the world. But if we are at war or there is something very important to know, it’s a given that someone will tell you. The newspaper industry is mostly run by corporate companies that accept money from big business for advertising, which results in incorrect news, often that has nothing to do with helping the world (horse racing results etc). So here are a few better newspapers, from ones that report what good people are doing to help, to those that do report the news, but in an independent and non-biased manner, if you prefer ‘real news’. The Vegan Review is a good daily online newspaper listing all the latest news in the vegan world. Find animal welfare news at Vegan FTA.
A Truly Independent Newspaper
Byline Times is a monthly print or online paper, run by dedicated journalist for in-depth articles on what the papers don’t say. There are no PR companies or press barons, everything is authentic. Run by a small dedicated team of journalists, this is a platform for freelance reporters and writers to write fearless journalism, which is not found in the mainstream media.
This newspaper does not report the daily news. It concentrates on ‘what the papers don’t say’, and follows the story wherever it goes, without fear or favour. Its integrity comes from its editorial independent. Standing against corruption, injustice and the erosion of truth, the paper believes that accurate information is the lifeblood of democracy. Opinions are fine, but facts must be reported to.
The newspaper usually goes to print during the first two weeks of each month, with most editions posted out today after. Or just subscribe for immediate access online (there is plenty of free articles to read too). It also runs a crowdfunding journalism platform, a press corruption site and an annual byline festival. It even as its own Byline TV.
A Newspaper To Celebrate All That’s Good
The Happy Newspaper is a beautifully designed 32-page newspaper that is published every 3 months, and sent worldwide to anyone who would like to know about the people who are helping others, and doing things of good, all over the planet. This refreshing twist on ‘the news’ is bound to leave you feeling better, than before.
News articles are arranged monthly, with positive stories from across the globe. Each issue has an entire section dedicated to everyday heroes, that are nominated by readers to feature, as they bring a little sunshine to the world. The paper has a theme on each issue, along with various features, poems, food and showbiz, along with lovely colourful illustrations throughout.
Available also as a gift for others, you can also order a free resource pack for schools, and they send a free Happy Newspapers to schools, for every newspapers they sell. If you run a small shop, get in touch and they can also supply you. It is also supplied at a discounted rate for the NHS.
In the US, The Goodnewspaper is similar. This is designed to make you feel bettering after reading it, so you go out inspired to help the world. And back in the UK, Positive News has its own newspaper and magazine (which you can often find for free in indie veggie cafes).
