Having a diverse news diet is as important for you as a proper nutritionally balanced meal and here are the 10 NZ news sources you should check out daily to have a better comprehension of the world around us.
Waatea News is the best source of an indigenous voice on the politics of the day. Waatea News is an incredible resource for some of the best journalism in NZ. It often has unique perspectives and breaking Maori news that helps explain much of the symptom news you get on the mainstream a few weeks later.
Vice offers some of the best cultural investigations and news critiques around. Their new TV channel on Sky is the most exciting thing to happen to NZ media landscape since the launch of TV3.
One of the best international news sites on offer. They have a journalistic focus on people and power that insures a wide range of news events get covered that you simply never see appear in Western media.
The best liberal news organisation in America, they were the first non-indigenous media at Standing Rock. Their passion to hold the Military Industrial Complex to account for America’s appalling foreign affairs policy is never ending. Noam Chomsky is on the site all the time, and his wisdom and insights are always worth watching.
The best feminist blog in NZ. Powerful insights and great journalism. A daily must read.
Excellent analysis of NZ and international trends on politics.
The youth arm of radio NZ, it’s always well written and interesting. A bit like a Christian Vice though. They don’t have sex at The Wireless, but if they did they would have consent forms counter signed in triplicate by a local JP.
One of the best liberal perspectives from the UK although their anti-Corbyn stance highlights the cultural divide of the elites and why Brexit happened.
The best critical analysis of mass surveillance and American political corruption. A must read each day.
You have to check RNZ daily just to watch CheckPoint, but you also get some of the best journalism on events that are occurring in NZ.
