Proposal

Unpack is a news site that allows the user to experience a completely randomized news stream from international sources.

Mainstream news coverage in most areas has prominent flaws—inherent partisan bias from various local parties of interest, and non-inclusivity to start. Social media responses tend to be incredibly reactionary and not always founded on facts and can be entirely un-newsworthy. Unpack presents all stories without order or precedence so users can read and explore what they want whenever they want.

Users will be able to use Unpack to view all breaking international events, choose specific regions, and explore random stories within each of those categories. Social media is completely eschewed for a pure news-viewing experience.
