FAQ – Frequently asked questions

What is News Bitty?

News Bitty provides up-to-date news in a concise, condensed format to make news sources easier and quicker to read. We do this by taking the top news of the day and stripping out the hyperbole and bias and presented the plain, simple facts in a simple bulleted list. Paid subscribers also have access to additional news tools such as our proprietary catalog tool, in-article glossaries, and more.

What is the blue text in the articles?

Text highlighted in blue are statements that contain inherent bias. Readers should pay attention to these statements and recognize they contain suppositions, estimates, or slanted ideas that may support the article, but should be taken as opinion.

What do I get with a News Bitty subscription?

Complete details on the advantages of a News Bitty subscription can be found on the subscription page. In short, subscribers have a much enhanced reading experienced over free readers. Subscribers see images, in-article glossary tooltips, a unified news page with headings and bulleted news compiled on a single page, and much more.

Where do you get your news?

We scour the Internet for news from a wide variety of reputable sources including CNN, AP, Reuters, New York Times, NBC, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Business Insider, Newsweek, Forbes, Fox News, UPI, Bloomberg, and various specialized media outlets that cater to science, health, technology, religion, entertainment and other categorical topics.

So again, how does this all work?

News items are aggregated from various high-quality sources including reputable media outlets, press releases, and professional news feeds. Relying on more than two decades of journalism experience, each news item is reviewed and the most critical data extracted and rewritten in concise bullet-list format.

Most bias is eliminated from the final news items reported. However, if opinion-type statements must be included, they are highlighted in blue making it easy for the reader to isolate statements that could potentially be considered subjective.

Pictures are only included in articles if they are deemed important enough to influence the story’s content or could make an unclear topic more easily understandable or recognizable. By doing this, we can keep news items condensed and quicker to read.
