If you're in two-column mode, left-leaning sources are displayed in the left column, right-leaning sources displayed in the right column. Compare and contrast biased headlines on the same topic, rather amusing!
Just want to give a quick shout out to @highaced β€” without his incredible project NewsAPI.org (also on PH!) this app most definitely wouldn't exists. Cheers Jordan!

Good idea that hopefully can be expanded

Pros:

No fake news

Cons:

None so far

We already have this: MSNBC and Fox
@mcknco By "page" you must not mean screen. b/c that's pretty easy.
How did you decide which bias to give a news source? Anything pop up as hard to label? NewsAPI has author info; do you think/can you test to see if there is another level of bias there? i.e. Fox news might have one left-leaning writer (anything is possible....). Maybe a rating system to rate which way readers feel specific articles lean, and then apply that to sources/authors? (ok, I know I know, that would be a shit show). And as always: any thoughts about going open source? NewsAPI is new to me, and you've made great use of it! I'm excited to play a bit with it. Maybe I could use partial press as a way to filter out the biased crap :)
@dancyfits I'm still working on the news sources (w/ News API) and the bias labels (w/ mediabiasfactcheck.com). I'm happy to open-source it. If you remind me in a few days when I've finished tinkering I can put it on GitHub, no problemo.
@dancyfits Just went ahead and put it up now. Why wait?! :) GitHub link is listed above.
@mcknco Just saw this. I'm gonna fork it and play around a bit, maybe see if I can redo it in node, python, somethin. Just for fun/practice, no going public and stealing your millions :D
@dancyfits All yours, mate! Send me a message if you get something going :)
