Yesterday, I developed and published a new Chrome browser extension on the Chrome Web Store. The extension is called Sourcery for Google News.

When you visit Google News, the extension automatically tags each source with its associated media bias, as determined by the analysts at MediaBiasFactCheck.com.

Description

Sourcery for Google News reveals the true nature of the news you read. Sourcery uses the most comprehensive media bias resource, MediaBiasFactCheck.com, to tag stories published by 1,100+ sources.

We live in the age of the 24-hour news cycle, a time when fake news and hidden agendas drive public discourse. With Sourcery, you can make more informed decisions about the stories you read and share.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Quickly identify source bias
  • Critically evaluate journalism
  • Sort out fake news from real news

Supported tags include: Left, Left-Center, Center, Right-Center, Right, Pro-Science, Satire, Conspiracy, Fake News
