Twitter, now X, was once a useful site for breaking news. The Baltimore bridge collapse shows those days are long gone.

    Could you show us a few not so biased news sources? I suppose this will also vary wildly by topic. A news outlet might be narrative/propaganda driven on one topic, but not about another.

    Have you heard of Ground News? It’s basically a news aggregator that shows multiple stories on the same event, but with a bias rating and a factuality score, as well as a ownership category. Also, a blindspot category which shows articles being shown predominantly by one side and not the other.

    The Ground News bias ratings are calculated using three independent news monitoring organizations: All SidesAd Fontes Media, and Media Bias Fact Check. This score does not measure the bias of specific news articles. It is an assessment of the political bias of the publication. The rating takes into consideration things like the wording, story choices and political affiliation of the outlet.

      Clicking in a bit looking for coverage of drumft’s criminal issues, his opening page under election category doesn’t even mention such and displays him as just a candidate.

      Just my first look though. I’ll keep trying. The L-R ratings are helpful.

      Looks good. It’s there a free tier?
