Want to learn from the News in Mandarin?

Then check out TTV!

The video is a piece about fake Uniqlo jackets, but you can click around and find other stuff.

The particular advantages of this news site are that it includes copyable transcriptions of what’s being said, and that the presenter comes from Taiwan, so they put some emotion into what they’re saying.

Sorry if this is old news (boom-tiss), but I had spent a long time looking for Mandarin news that included copyable transcriptions, and that wasn’t called CCTV. (TVB news is actually great for learning Cantonese, because every video includes copyable text which is very similar to what is being said.)

Any other news site recommendations?
