For anyone fighting against the rise of misinformation, sensationalism, and biased news, Ground News Pro will help you easily compare how a story is being covered by thousands of sources from across the political spectrum and from around the world.

Unlike traditional news aggregators, which utilize crowd-sourcing and algorithms that reward clickbait and reinforce pre-existing bias, Ground News Pro helps users understand the news objectively based on media bias, geographic location, and time. Launching two weeks before the first votes are cast in the U.S. presidential race, Ground News Pro is the world’s first news comparison platform that will help voters make better informed decisions, drawing from more than 40,000 news sources worldwide and featuring an average of 30,000 news stories per day.

I first heard about Ground News on Coleman Hughes’ podcast, Conversations with Coleman. I checked out the site and was immediately impressed. I’d heard of another somewhat similar concept that was available for gaining visibility to varied voices on the stories of day. (One of which Ground News uses in their Bias Determination of news sources) I found the content, layout, and depth of coverage way better on Ground News than any other news site I’ve seen to date. I later had a concern with the site not working properly on my iPhone. I soon figured out it was 100% user error. When I notified Ground News about the issue, I got a very quick reply from the team. After doing some research for me and walking me through some easy-to-do steps to fix the issue, they pin-pointed the issue and everything went back to working perfectly on the site. All that to say, Ground News provides very good customer service. I’m spreading the word around my contacts here in Texas. I encourage you to check GN out and if you like it, subscribe!
I want to understand all sides of an issue. Social algorithms have reinforced my confirmation bias showing stories that increasingly cater to my bias. Ground news makes it easier to notice your bias and inform you of other points of view. This is important especially if you don’t trust the left or right media.
I’ve been looking for an app like this for a long time. I consider myself an open minded individual. This format allows me to look at different points of view with ease. I would hope that others will find this app and use it. It has helped me define my political views and the app gives me an easy avenue for comparisons of viewpoints.
How come cnn is lean left? Almost no news outlet is left or far left in this app. The app itself is biased.
This a increasingly important app
I personally love this app. Particularly today, when it feels impossible to get news without spin. Highly recommend it.
This make so much sense for anyone that doesn’t want to live in a bubble. Read about a story from different perspectives and compare. C’mon folks - consider all sides! Thank you Ground News for creating this tool!
Great concept, cool execution. The placement of news outlets on the spectrum seems a bit skewed, at least on the left - NYT and CNN are only listed as "lean left" and BBC News is listed as listed as center, when it has at least a strong left lean. But yeah, it's awesome to have an aggregator like this!
I have been waiting for someone to tap into the market of folks that want NEWS Instead of PROPAGANDA. This app allows you to cut through the bias. I love it! Thanks so much for developing such an awesome tool for those seeking the TRUTH instead of info that supports preconceived notions.
This app is an invaluable tool to gauge bias in media and help discern a balanced understanding of what’s going on out there. I’m most grateful for it.
