Where do you get your news? Actually, the better question is — who do you trust to bring you your news? And maybe the best question of all…should you trust them?
In the age of "fake news" claims, flagrant political biases, and a proliferation of sources that make staying on top of news coverage all but impossible, the question of whether or not a news outlet should be trusted is the biggest crisis facing The Fourth Estate.
Ground News wants to arm you with the one weapon you can use to answer that question: knowledge. The world's first news comparison platform, the Ground News app aggregates reports from over 50,000 global news sources so you can easily see how that news is being reported across the political spectrum.
For any article, you can click through a variety of media reports about that news item, seeing at a glance how far right, far left and centrist news sources are covering that information. Inside, coverage analysis will even let you see side-by-side comparisons of whether that story is receiving balanced coverage or is only being used as red meat propaganda by fringe news outlets.
Since location is also key in how a news story is told, Ground News expands around the world, showing how international sources are covering the story as well. With their Local Coverage Analysis feature, you can follow the entire timeline of a story, tracking exactly who reported it first and when, then see all the variations that came in the following hours.
With all these features, you can either use Ground News to evaluate the truthfulness of news sources you currently trust, or start constructing a trusted news funnel of your own. From hyperlocal news to global events, you can build your own media diet, using filters to assemble stories based on your area, your interests — or which outlets you can actually believe.
Ground News means you no longer have to trust in the news sources themselves. Now, you can trust in yourself to find news free of bias and skewed facts.
A year of Ground News Premium access is regularly $29, but with this current deal, you can try Ground News for 12 months for just $19.99. Less than $2 a month is a small price to pay to get you the real news.
