"Why should I trust Bites?"

At Bites, we provide you with all the facts to a story.

 

Our facts are pulled straight from traditional and trustworthy newspapers and journalists who are held to the highest standards of reporting. See a full list of our approved sources.

 

We always provide a direct link to where we found the fact, so you can dive deep and read more.

 

We believe our articles give you a solid foundation to start from before you read a traditional news article. But that's our opinion- go see for yourself!

 

"What makes news by Bites different?"

Every article is written in bullet notation to give you a straightforward breakdown.

 

We always include two sides to the story. That way, you are the fully informed and up-to-date.

 

These two sides may be:

Pro means facts or opinions that could be good.

 

Con means facts or opinions that could be bad.

Facts are facts.

Opinions are not facts.

They are neither right nor wrong.

Opinions are simply what someone might believe.

Sometimes, people use facts to support their opinions.

We believe everyone learns differently, and that it's up to you to be knowledgeable. So read, click, listen, or watch what you need to get all the facts.

 

We highly recommend you do it all! You'll be asking your brain to operate and absorb knowledge in different ways which will improve your memory and learning of the content.
