    I'm struggling to think of one, though I know for a fact that some news articles have made me rage a bit.

    Do opinion pieces count? I know an opinion piece is a bit different to a news article - news articles simply report a piece of news, opinion pieces are someone's opinion on something. Most of the rage inducing stuff for me tends to be from opinion pieces. If they count then I probably have several examples.

    I don't really feel outraged towards most news (like recent terrorist attacks in Bangladesh, Turkey and Somalia), because I just feel like that's life. Stuff like that makes me feel more upset. I guess any outrage from me would be from things which aren't fair, like that rapist not being given a lengthy jail sentence a few weeks ago because 'jail would be too harsh', or the recent shootings by police officers in America.

    Like RF_PineMarten, I feel that if something is more of an opinionated piece (like a biased news story, like the stuff Breitbart/DM puts on), that outrages me but in a different way.
