I got the News Manager program and I'm creating a community based website for my local city to charge local businesses advertising fees to post banners on my site: http://www.cartersvillemarketplace.com/classifieds.php don't mind the homepage as i'm currently developing that. I bought the program so that i can post news to my site to get people coming to my site within the community. So instead of using regular news, I want to use the type of News for where dumb people do dumb things, or weird news, such as 7 year old boy picked up for stealing his 2nd car... I found some sources, but one thing i find is they only allow you to post their headlines and may 1 or 2 paragraphs and the rest has to link back to their page, i find this to be the same for the regular news sources also. Is there a way around this whereas i can post the entire articles on my site legally, i hate to link to external websites???


Re: [cartess3] Where do i get free News?

Hi Cartess,

I'm not too sure where to find free 'weird' news like this, but a great place to start your search would be on google.com. While there used to be many free news sources available on the net, many of them now charge for their services. The good news is there should still be quite a few free news services out there, of course, finding the exact type of news you want is the tricky bit. :)

Anybody else have any suggestions?

OK, here is a link I use to get my daily ration of "Weird". Go to http://www.rotten.com, then click on "Today's Rotten News".

I hope this helps!
