Everyone should know at least this much.
When you watch the news, do you ever have the feeling that you don’t know enough to fully understand the most important stories?
News-Basics.com is for students and adults who want to quickly learn the background behind major news stories. Each article covers the key facts you need to know, describes conflicting opinions, and leads you to sources of more detailed information. You may be confused about globalization when you start reading, but you’ll know more than most people when you finish.
Why create News-Basics.com, when a web search will turn up more material than you can read in a day? It’s all about time: there’s no one place where you can get as concise and complete an introduction to major news stories as you’ll find here.
About impartiality: despite my best attempt to cover the different sides of each debate fairly, people with strong opinions may think I’ve gotten the story wrong. I welcome those who feel I’ve shortchanged their side to send comments—preferably with links to persuasive articles or opinion pieces—and explain where I may have fallen short.
If you spot a mistake, or have a constructive suggestion, please let me know.
Welcome to News-Basics.com. I hope you find what you came for.
