I recently found a website that does relatively okay EU related news in English. I can mix up lots of English papers/magazines/ the BBC for the UK, and Reuters/Washington Post/NYT/Bloomberg tend to do me well enough for the US, but I always struggled to find a good European source in English. I thought some of you might be in the same position and want to take a look at it:-

https://www.politico.eu/

I picked through the editorial team and most of them are actual proper journalists with pedigree from the FT, NYT, Bloomberg/Le Monde etc; as opposed to some dude who writes a blog/newly graduated student/conservative wankrag/Russian bot/Buzzfeed SHOCK NEWS writers. It's absurd I had to rule all those things out, but sadly, they make up 99% of 'news' websites on the internet.

Note that this is not an invitation to politics, just sharing a new information source that some of you might find useful.

Politico.eu is fairly good yeah. It's always hard to get away from the language bias so I do find that they have an overabundance of English, American and Australian sources which tends towards a bit of a pro-Anglosphere bias, but if you go in knowing that it's a decent source and not very sensationalist, which I think is the important thing.

I read the US version daily.

They have some excellent journalists, high standards, and mostly try to call it down the middle, which I appreciate as a moderate. Even some of the most mainstream news organizations have gotten...shrill...in their attempts to drive viewership. Politico feels like a trip back in time to me.
