I have recently discovered a great website called NewsFifty.com. NewsFifty is like 50 Drudge Reports, one for each state. Oklahoma’s own Sid Burgess, the National Director of NewsFifty, spent sometime giving me some more information about the site via IM and e-mail.
It is important to us that you know that we are not a news aggregator like so many other websites you might visit. In other words, we are not a “programmed” website that automatically updates itself every 5-10 minutes using RSS feeds from thousands of news sources.I have added NewsFifty: Oklahoma to my favorites, and have been checking it out a few times a day. I like it because I am already familiar with the clean, no-nonsense layout, and because it seems to always have stories relating to Tulsa and Oklahoma that I find interesting. Since I have roots in Texas, Iowa, and Missouri, I’ve also really enjoyed checking the NewsFifty pages for those states as well. NewsFifty is a worthy addition to your online news regimen; I highly recommend adding it to your list of favorites.
NewsFifty is comprised of a team of people spread out across the United States, each of us having a region with a number of states we are responsible for. In most cases, we are up way before you get out of bed, scouring the internet state by state searching for what we believe to be will be or should be the driving force of today’s talking points and questions. From breaking stories, buried stories, political stories and current affairs, we bring all of these stories to 1 website making it super easy for anyone to find out the truth and get caught up with what is going on.
