Newsy is a site dedicated to merging news stories from various sources into one video clip. They use various news agencies, newspapers, magazines, and websites to create the story thus provide various views on a news story.
The news is broken down in to popular categories (US, World, Politics, Business, Tech, Health/Science, and Sports. I like the organization of Newsy for the purpose of covering current events and getting different views. It can help create discussion because of the different views you get about different stories. You could easily adapt the stories from Newsy to many of the subjects in schools while providing an unbiased view.
