this is like really nice.

I'm mainly fascinated by the Blindspot feature. It shows how all news sources are bias and can also help you learn what the opposing side is seeing. I just wish everything wasn't locked behind a paywall but it's alright.

The Blindspot Feature

I personally lean left and the blindspot feature has shown me some news in the world that I otherwise wouldn’t have seen because left and center news sources didn’t report on it. It also shows you how biased the news sources are below on a graph from far-left to far-right. Overall, I rate this Ground News pretty high and it’s become a part of my everyday life.

Really, really biased

I had hopes for this as a way to get unbiased news, or at least truthful judging of news story biased. About a month in I started noticing that the vast majority of stories they listed from left wing sources were listed as “high factuality” and the rest as “mixed factuality” while almost all the right wong news was mixed or low. They had several stories frlm the right that had nothing but quotes and data and were listed as “mixed factuality”. Stories from the left that had known misinformation were listed as “high factuality”. They also list places like NPR and Politico as “leans left”. HAHAHAHA!!!! What a joke. Just another example of a supposed news aggregator trying to pass itself off as something to trust but they are nothing but shills for the left. Stay far away from these leftists.

This app has helped me track breaking stories and find potential pitching opportunities for clients. It is thorough and presents a comprehensive overview of the discussion surrounding diverse topics. Great app, highly recommend!

Helpful Developer Response

This is an updated and revised review which I feel is appropriate following a very informative genuine response from the developer. My original review complained of annoying ads in linked third party articles rendering many of them unreadable or sometimes being directed to articles that were behind a paywall. I noted in that review that these ad problems are in no way unique to Ground News and that Ground News app itself is an ad-free experience but that I felt it hampered the reader experience. The developer replied with a genuine and sympathetic response but clarified some additional things including the fact that they do not in any way profit from popups. I learned from the developer that there are ways of filtering and adjusting your feed so that paywall articles can be screened. Also, the developer indicates that an external browser function is available to better deal with pop ups and such like. I’ll be trying out these features and settings but overall I am very satisfied with what Ground News does, how it helps when it comes to news biases and the sheer breadth of content. It is clearly highly customizable - perhaps in a way that I didn’t fully understand at first. And of course, any developer who takes the time to reach out personally to address a concern is serious about doing the right thing and their product.

Hard to manage subscription

Too many sites are behind paywalls

Push Left News

Sadly I have seen as of lately a push to the left on the articles that are on the main page. Seems every story there is to paint a curtain party in a negative light. There isn’t balance. Going to have to look into some of these other apps

Went Downhill

Been using for over a year, but deleted app today. An increasing amount of news stories devoted to climate alarmism has been evident (with no "other side" articles about genuine climate studies). Also, their images for the stories are generic and repetitive.
By RobertReview

My new favorite news site. By far the least bias and most in depth.

Good customer support

I left a negative review complaining about the bias ratings in the app & they explained to me what they used to decide in them and let me know there is a feature that lets us edit them.
