Find news beyond your border

On Unfiltered.News, one of the first things you’ll notice is a list of topics on the right-hand side of the map. It shows topics that are popular globally on the specified day, but are not among the most reported topics in your particular location.

See which regions are reporting on a topic

If you select a topic, it will instantly redraw the map to show which locations are reporting most on that topic. From there, you can explore different points of view by reading the world’s headlines about that subject. In selecting the topic refugee, for example, you’ll find that today Germany is reporting on refugee who helped administer first aid after a plane crash, while other locations are talking about Syria and the Coast Guard.

Regardless of the language selected, thanks to the power of Google Translate you’re seeing the entire world’s news, in all its languages, translated automatically into the language of your choice.
