In an era where we get our news from mobile rather than tuning in to watch the local news, it can be hard to determine fact from opinion. Each news source has its own political bias, so how do we know what’s actually happening in the world around us? When you check your news, you don’t want to have to search and compare to piece together the news. Our App of the Week, Ground News, is the news app that’s fighting the rise of biased and fake news.
Ground News does the research for you so you don’t have to determine what each news source’s political bias is. Ground News allows you to pick news interests so you’re provided a news feed catered to what you want to see. When you click on a news story, Ground News provides a list of different news sources that are covering the story, allowing you to compare how each source is covering the news. Each source is labeled withe its bias so you can be an informed citizen.
