Burst Your Virtual Filter Bubble
Our Chrome extension bursts your filter bubble and gives you control of your “media diet.” It’s like a fitbit for news. We combine reliable data from LexisNexis with proprietary artificial intelligence algorithms so you can make better decisions about what news you read and share.
In a world where truthiness and transparency matter more than ever, we give you both. Online content is labeled on credibility and readability as well as on political, economic, mainstream and gender-related biases.
