Malaysians could use a really good focused news opinion website

With so much news clutter in the world, it seems that people would need help to digest and make sense of everything that is happening. That is the reason for opinion stories, commentary and op-ed pieces that appear in the news.

And there is this new app…

Discor is a new app and website that aggregates opinion writing from all around the Internet and puts it side by side with the news so that viewers and readers will be able to understand the context of what is happening in the world.

I think it’s a great idea because I like to understand things a bit more and to know the implications of the news to my life. But I don’t know if this is something that will catch on with the masses.

Also, there are so many of these apps and sites available such as Circa (which is strapped for cash right now), Vox, Politico, etc. And it doesn’t help that Discor (and most of the other apps) are all so American and western-inclined.

So where do we in Malaysia go for intelligent opinion stories?
