It was mentioned in the CoronaVirus thread that not everyone has access to a proxy.
The purpose of this thread is to start listing news sources that do not require a proxy (at the time of posting).

Also worth mentioning is that China does not block access to wide range of news sites that are in languages other than English or other world languages.

- Associated Press: apnews.com/apf-topnews

- MSN News: www.msn.com/en-us/news
(Carries a lot of syndicated stories from otherwise blocked outlets such as the NY Times)

- Wikipedia via Bing: Entering "2019-20 coronavirus outbreak" as the search term in the mobile version of cn.bing.com (but not in the desktop version) calls up the full text of the relevant Wikipedia article within the Bing search results page. Incidentally, most of the articles on Wikipedia can be accessed in this way without a proxy.
