Real News? Fake News? Here’s the News We Choose!
The world is getting more splintered. We have far-right, far-left, alt-left, and alt-right, plain old right, and plain old left, and nobody seems to care about the good old center. We can’t even get the news anymore without some talking head telling us what to think.

One of the things that separates Cloudeight from all the other Windows help site is your sense of humor. You make computer fun even with all the failed upgrades, malware, scams, and so on.
I will continue to send my donations monthly and do all I can to make sure Cloudeight never disappears from the internet.
I love you guys!
My favorite is the “Loose Goat.” This “Billy” is a Nubian. Having had over a hundred Nubians, I’m familiar with the bucks (“Billy”). They look like a wildebeest and can behave like one too. Quite a challenging handful, not to mention the, let’s say, olfactory perception. The baa-d gals love it though. Anyway, really great news site and one I’ll visit every day.
I only cruise the “news” sites in order to find the type of things you listed. Best news includes anything to do with animals…..mostly dogs.
