In times of fake news, American presidential elections, or even COVID-19, correctness of information and political neutrality are two essential elements. News travels quickly, especially on social networks. Most media are politically oriented, which leads to distortions in the transmission of information.
To overcome this, Ground News Bias Checker is a free extension that allows you to get a second opinion on the news you read. Each time an article is read, the extension allows for comparison with other media dealing with the same subject as the subject is treated, across the political spectrum. Regardless of where the news is distributed directly on the websites or via social networks like Facebook, Twitter or even Reddit, the tool shows the political orientation of the article and that of the other media that processed the information. . The extension is available in Chrome, but also in Firefox, Edge, Brave or Opera.
