    Flipboard doesn't group the articles about the same item from various sources, like Google News does. So I get multiple articles saying the same thing scattered around my news feed.

    This alternative is disputed. Digg is still a legitimate alternative to Google News, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    They give politically diverse sources (labeled) about the same new. I also like they make studies and media literacy courses on media bias.
