Ability to customize news feed when opening a new browser

I like to catch up on the day’s news early in the morning while eating breakfast. It’s the first thing I do when I open my browser, before I start working. It would be nice if I could customize the news feed on the home page. I refuse to read the New York Times (look up the relationship between Allen Dulles and Arthur Sulzeberger if you want to know why), but there is almost always a New York Times article there. I’ve never once clicked on it. Also, some categories of news items I’m interested in don’t show up at all. It would be nice if I could set it up both to pull the day’s news from specific websites I already go to and if Brave could suggest related news items from institutions I maybe haven’t read from in the past.
