An independent news aggregator, Newsblaze was founded with the goal of providing attention to the news that the mainstream media gives little or no attention to. In its effort to provide a variety of news stories from an array of sources, Newsblaze draws from articles and press releases from the United Nations, NATO, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of State, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Iraqi government, environmental groups, and other organizations.
Newsblaze offers visual news as well, using pictures whenever possible and carrying video news releases from Eworldwire. This added media, combined with hyperlinks and background information, is designed to give readers a more complete understanding of the news stories of the day.
