I'll soon be releasing a new website for discussing articles from media outlets. The unique contribution is that it lists the articles by day for each media site, and there can be comments/discussions for each article.
I'm crawling before I walk. Initially it will just have Washington Post articles, but I'll soon be adding the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, CNN, Axios, Politico, The Hill, etc.
I need suggestions for the site name. I should have asked earlier because I'm ready to buy a domain name, release it, and let this thing start taking baby steps. The working name for the site is NewsTalk. The NewsTalk.com domain name is already taken, so I'd just go with something like NewsTalkGo.com.
But is there a better name than NewsTalk?
Motivation for the website is the poor functionality of existing comments sections, and the number of outlets that don't have comments sections. The Washington Post closes the comments section for an article after a few days, while the New York Times includes a comments section on only around 10% of its articles, and it too closes comments sections after a few days. These are both pay sites. CNN doesn't have comment sections for articles. Neither do Axios or Politico, and I didn't check any others.
The comments sections that do exist are under featured. Finding one of your old posts is difficult at the Post and impossible at the Times unless you saved the email notification for each comment. Finding someone else's posts isn't possible anywhere.
Anyway, please help me out with a name.

I *really* want .com. Maybe it makes much less difference than it used to, but I've always regretted not using evcforum.com.
If I went with TalkNews as the site's name then I could check the availability of domain names like TalkNewsGo.com and so forth.

News Thoughts
Newsthoughts.com
Seems to be available

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

TalkNews
Talk News is a good title.

The only problem there is that one has to subscribe to each service. I only get a limited number of free articles before I am asked to subscribe.
