Hi @ScottMonteith, another user reported on this several weeks ago, and it seems like it’s a CBS issue…

The flaw makes the Today feature inadequate as a reliable news source. It even includes a time stamp that says that the news item is current. From the content of the numerous articles appearing from CBS they contain keywords for current trends to make it appear as relevant news.

On my laptop I will go into “Edit Cards” on my Brave browser and then “Brave Today” to show the sources. In “Top News” I will find CBS and get rid of this manipulation of the news feed.

Yes, it’s good to take the time to customise one’s Brave Today. :slight_smile:
