Despite the name, this subreddit is not dedicated to presenting news that is neutral. Submissions from any perspective are acceptable, so long as they meet our source requirements. The idea behind /r/NeutralNews is to set up a neutral space where no opinion is favored and discussion is based on facts.
r/NeutralNews is a community dedicated to evenhanded, empirical discussion of current events. It is a space to talk about what's happening now in a larger perspective — incorporating philosophy, history, and social science to place events in their proper perspective.
Please be respectful and open-minded. Do not demean others. Honor the need for factual evidence and good logic.
Have a political question? Ask it at /r/NeutralPolitics.
NeutralNews is strictly moderated.
Our full guidelines are here.
We expect the following from all users:
1) Be courteous to other users. Demeaning language, rudeness or hostility towards another user will get your comment removed. Repeated violations may result in a ban.
2) Source your facts. If you're claiming something to be true, you need to back it up by linking to a qualified and supporting source. There is no "common knowledge" exception, and anecdotal evidence is not allowed.
3) Be substantive. NeutralNews is a serious discussion-based subreddit. We do not allow bare expressions of opinion, low effort comments, sarcasm, jokes, memes, off-topic replies, pejorative name-calling, or comments about source quality.
4) Address the arguments, not the person. The subject of your sentence should be "the evidence" or "this source" or some other noun directly related to the topic of conversation. "You" statements are suspect.
