NEWS and RUMORS was created to solve two growing problems, the lack of online content diversity and respect for user privacy.

Content Diversity

In recent years, people have been moving more toward search engines, social media and content aggregators for their daily content needs rather than visiting a list of content sites or running individual content apps one by one.

At the same time, most of those services have focused on pushing the same content from the same sources while relegating a lot of great and diverse content to deep searches and exhaustive searches.

This situation has helped the most popular content sources grow or maintain their reader levels while making it very hard and difficult for smaller organizations and independent writers to reach new readers and audiences.

We plan to change that.

User Privacy

Everyone is becoming more aware these days of how much we are being tracked every step of the way while online. Even more troubling, we have no idea how that information is being used or if it is being sold or shared with other organizations and services.

Despite marketing campaigns by most organizations promoting how much they respect user privacy, a deep dive into their convoluted private statements, terms of use and end-user license agreements (EULAs) shows they still collect, track and use our data as they always have, but now are doing it even more.

While we cannot prevent sites from tracking you once you are on their site, we can provide you with a safe and tracking-free place for finding great news and content.

Our Goal

We want to connect readers with a variety of content sources while providing everyone with a safe way to find and consume content with as little user information as possible.
