So all news reports, from all news agencies, you have here within the same minute of release. Really quick!
We could adjust it to update every second (technically possible), but it will be considered overload of the news agencies websites, and not popular at all.

Considering the amount of sources we update on (over 100 https:// news channels) per minute. Everything automated 24 hours and 7 days per week.
The goal is to provide the best global overview. And to program the best free Internet tool to stay globally updated at all times.
Example: A nuclear plant outside Oslo, Norway, has a major accident. You want to know more about the situation.
Here you can follow many newsreports from several reporting sources like Reuters, AP, TASS, BBC and CNN to quickly and without to much trouble, asses more information about the accident and get a better overview of the whole situation fast! That's the greatness of this intelligence and news website.
And although some of our clients already work in intelligence agencies and have excellent reporting, they are not always at work having that access.
So when not at work and you wish to have a global update, you are of course welcome here, as the rest of us! Just type NSAROBOT.COM
