Online Conservative News

It’s true that many people are too busy to have time to sort through the commentary or gossip, ads or other non-news items in order to see the only news stories that are important. The evening TV news is an unsuitable option for many families because the content is too unpredictable for kids (and we’re just too tired to be up late for the late-night broadcast).

I had a small inkling that it would be difficult to keep track of current events after becoming a mother. My best friend (a stay-at-home-mom of three) often makes fun of how uninformed she feels about the state of the nation and the world. She realizes that it’s crucial to be an informed citizen , but is too busy. I started to empathize when my son became a toddler and began to climb through his toys, jump up on, put fingers into, or eat every thing in sight.

I hope one of these tools will help you get the information you’re looking for while allowing you to concentrate on your main priorities. I am a spreadsheet geek so for those of you who are looking to compare specific sites , I’ve made one available on my site (see for reference information). I’ll continue to update it frequently as I find new sources. Any of these solutions should keep you on top of the latest news in the same way as prior to the time your brain and time were monopolized by your children hobbies, job, or hobby.

Independent News Sites

I admit, there’s no such thing as zero bias. The ideal you can find in a news site is one that is customizable or is already in line with your preferences. Try to find front pages with detailed headlines rather than long content, are easy to read, and can display clearly when you use your smartphone device(s). The aim is to find something you can glance over and get the major headlines in a matter of minutes. An excellent first stop is the Associated Press (AP) site as this not-for-profit is among the top trusted news outlets that is independent worldwide.

RSS (Really Simple Syndication)

A lot of people use an RSS viewer, but the e-mail application on your desktop or web browser might already include this feature. It’s an excellent option since you can join the number of feeds you’d like as well as filter and sort to your heart’s content, and then read them all in one place. Be sure to not oversubscribe or you’ll eventually have overlap.

Numerous sites that charge for their daily printed or newsletters offer this no cost. I like those you can alter both content and frequency, have short articles, few pictures and are fairly objective.

Include it on Your Home Page

When you open your web browser, your home page will open automatically. Most often, it’s a search engine or an e-mail client, however you can customize it whatever you choose. If you can find an independent news site that meets your requirements consider making it your homepage. Visit:-

Another option is to utilize one of the front pages that you can customize popular webmail providers have. You can populate this with news (by topic) and stock quotes and much more. I have found this to be the most efficient and convenient way to keep up-to-date without getting bombarded with information I don’t care about.

There’s an app to do that…

There are many applications for smartphones and tablets which provide news feeds. As with the previous suggestions, the ability to customize is crucial. One application I’m really fond of currently is “Flipbook”. This application creates a personalized digital magazine that you can use, the articles are brief and you are only exposed to the subjects you select. The application is simple, visually pleasing, and ideal for quick scrolling through the top headlines.

Follow Something… and Someone

It’s a great choice but might take a little more research on your part. Twitter is great due to its short by nature. It’s not easy to personalize, so you need to be selective in whom (or the things) that you are following. I recommend beginning with a news source that is independent or the nightly news channel you enjoyed when you had time to watch television.


I was very disappointed by the results I got from print solutions. I like the idea of a weekly or monthly publication with interesting, relevant headlines that I read in under 5 minutes after I get it out of my emails. However, I’ll be forced to use email until I can create my own. The majority of news websites offer an option to sign up for an electronic newsletter, which includes links to their articles. The upside is they come directly to you. The downside is that most come daily. I suggest you wait until you locate an online news source you can trust that has a monthly or weekly option , or remove yourself from the service.

Listen vs. Watch

Radio is not dying! I am sure you’ll be amazed by how crisp hourly radio news updates are. Another option to listen is that many media companies make their reporting available in podcast format. If you have an Bluetooth headset, you can listen via a compatible device as you work on you work on your never-ending piles dishes, laundry or paperwork.


One of the simplest method to discover the current situation is to speak to anyone who is up-to-date on current events. Do not avoid discussing the subject for fear of embarrassment in public! Let them know that you aren’t in the loop, then let them talk. For stay-at-home parents you can request one of your close friends or family member phone to text, message or send you an email when they are informed of a relevant news report. My best friend has been discussing current events with her retired neighbors (who can spare time to follow and read the latest news). It’s become a fantastic way to reach out to her and receiving the latest information while keeping an eye on her kids.

I really like TV News! TV News!

There are several good ways to still enjoy the full audio and visual experience of the news channel in the news channel. You can try watching only videos online for a quick version of the news story. It is possible to record it afterwards and then watch it somewhere that your kids aren’t able to hear or see. As an example, you could use the TV in your room while you get ready or even in the kitchen using an attached wall mount for your tablet or smartphone.

Perhaps this has helped you come up with a few new ideas to help you get back in-the-loop with national and world events. If yes, be sure to share the things that worked for you with other people who are busy in your life!
