"Why should I trust Bites?"

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

 

Our facts are aggregated 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 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 requires multiple ways to access information. So read, click, listen, or watch what you need to get all the facts.

 

We highly recommend you do it all! Not only is it more engaging, but you're also asking your brain to operate and absorb knowledge in different ways. This has been shown to improve your memory and comprehension of the content.
