News for a better world
We provide news related to making our world better.
We give greater attention to the biggest
problems and the positive things people are
doing to help. Some of the topics we cover are:
Nonprofits play a major role in helping people and communities. We report on
voluntarism, philanthropy, nonprofit trends, innovative ideas and government policies that affect
We focus less on domestic politics and more on the key aspects of democracies such
as free and fair elections, the rule of law, political freedom, an independent judiciary and a healthy,
Half of all people are living on less than $3,000 a year for all their needs. This
affects their health, families, education, shelter and all else. We tell you their stories and the
stories of the people and groups helping them.

Bad news and
Other news outlets: think
it’s only news if it’s bad. They have mostly bad news with a bit of good news.
DailySource: The news
shouldn’t just be depressing. It should also hearten and inspire. Plus, including good news is far more
accurate: even when a bad event happens in one place, positive things occur in others. So, we track our

The richest 20% and
the poorest 80%
Other news outlets: focus

DailySource: We aim for the
most good for the most people. So half of our content is about people in the bottom half: those making

Other news outlets: focus on
single occurences with lots of useless minutiae that don’t tell you much, and even give you a false
DailySource: We tell you
what’s really happening. For example, in a year in which suicide drops 18%, if you read five stories about
individual suicides, you’ll wrongly think it’s on the rise. If instead you read one story saying it’s
dropped, you get the right info with 80% less time. The choice is yours: be misinformed with more effort,
or be well informed with less effort.
other sites you mostly get small isolated details and bad news about the richest 20%. With us you get
a great mix of good and bad news, big picture info and small details, and news about
