I believe everyone should have convenient access to diverse, unbiased and honest news (or the closest we can hope to get).

I'm planning on adding a feature to this bot that will pull in the article text and add it as a comment to each thread. Not sure if I can make it bypass paywalls but it's on my to-do list to try.

Thanks for the feedback. One of the things I like about ITN is that you get to see the same story from multiple sources with their bias information included with each. Many stories exist in multiple categories, though, so those are actual duplicates between each magazine/community with Xpost links between. I could have the bot only post a story once the first time it comes across it but then people would only see it in that one magazine/community instead of in multiple. That might be better just to reduce the # of threads.

No worries, I just found this site myself a couple weeks ago and though it would be cool to bring to my preferred UI (kbin) and share via the fediverse with anyone else who might be interested. I currently have it checking every 10 mins for new articles and posting new ones as it finds them. It could easily be changed to every 30 mins. I made a modification this morning to reduce the # of ITN articles it scans (trying to focus on the big ones, quality > quantity) so will see how that works but I'm always open to feedback.

Thanks for the feedback. I mostly made this for myself but wanted to share for anyone else interested. Always interested in feedback. Unfortunately whatever shows up on ITN will be posted so it can definitely be a lot.
