    Pros: 

    Great balance between local and global news, very well designed and polished interface, the map view

    Cons: 

    none so far

    I really really like the map view. I follow soccer and with ground I can zoom in on Manchester, Munich, Madrid, Barcelona, etc. to follow different matches and see what is happening

  • Pros: 

    Great local news coverage, it distills the need to know info

    Cons: 

    none so far . . .

    I posted a story about an auto accident closing lanes of traffic yesterday and received immediate response from other users that my post helped their commute. New is from many sources and verified as not being FAKE news.

  • Pros: 

    Verification history (e.g. by the different Press entities) really helps me to trust the source.

    Cons: 

    Will need more users at the locations to really benefit from the live crowd responses.

    I like the fact that I can see across the map which events are the important or active ones, as opposed to just living in my own North American bubble. The reliability and verification of the source is even more important to me.

  • Pros: 

    You can see news stories at their actual locations on the map

    Cons: 

    Great so far!

    I think the map is great idea and moves away from just the traditional list view. If you zoom in on the map you can see local news stories from lots of locations around the world.

    Pros: 

    Looked promising.

    Cons: 

    Total left bias. liberal left opinion pieces

    This is just another left wing news site trying to act like its not bias.
