Latest reviews

  • (2020-09-11) John Franson: Unfortunately, it got the article ratings wrong too often to be really useful.
  • (2019-08-19) Juan Mendez: A smart and friendly little watchdog that warns you about fake news and bias content.
  • (2019-07-10) Damla Ozdalga: Super helpful extension and works very well with many sources - would highly recommend! It's impossible to be familiar with every news source and this does a good job of assessing and helping you filter the noise
  • (2019-05-18) Bryan “Ironman” Stark: The idea is 5-star but implementation is 2-star, e.g. 3-star total IMHO. For example it claims that CNN is a highly credible "slightly center left leaning" source, when they are the epitome of fake-news! So credibility is based upon how wide-spread the news is world-wide, i.e. "wide-spread." However, if you could count how many times they went with fake stories that they had to retract, they would definitely be low-credible source. To be fair they are mostly correct on a binary level; they correctly identify news that caters to the left or right of center, even if they incorrectly portray to what degree.
  • (2019-05-01) Ashish kumar naagar: Well, TBH I stumble upon this by mistake but Now I am loving it. If you love reading and majority of your time spent in front of computer screen you shouldn't miss this extension. Would love a app which can work on android. That would be lovely.
  • (2019-04-30) Tnmy Crprt: Online news is like the Wild West now. Who are you supposed to trust anymore. Not even sure about this but I’m going to give it a shot and see.
  • (2019-04-29) My Game: Imho I don’t know if I’d use this every day as there are certain publications that I trust no matter what even if I don’t agree with the author or the opinion in the article. Still this seems like it could help with some of those publications I’m not familiar with and if I should even bother reading it.
  • (2019-02-26) Rubel Ahmed: This is great. Don’t even know it’s working in the background until I go to search for news. Then I can check if I should read it or not.
  • (2019-02-25) Like this - is it on Firefox too? Or is there an app? It seems like it only works on a regular computer and I read the news on my phone more.
  • (2019-02-24) Sayed Hossain: So I saw a Facebook ad for this thing and decided why not. I’m a journalism student - not sure why when it seems like journalists are not the favorite people right now. Anyways makes me think about what are my own biases and if I can even write without them. I just want to get a job out of school.
  • (2019-02-21) abir mahmud: Having diff points of view is a good thing . But hearing the other side is good . trying to burst the bubble. this is one of the best extension for chrome try it for your self.
  • (2019-02-20) Tech Browse: Very Nice. Don’t even know it’s working in the background until I go to search for news. Then I can check if I should read it or not.
  • (2019-02-20) Goutam Roy: Interesting. Does seem to work on telling you the politics of any news item before you are going to read it. Wish it worked with some of the international publications I read.
  • (2019-02-19) rock kihiminsky: I can’t stand reading any of the liberal rags out there. And every day it seems like there is just more snowflake whining. Usually I stick to the Twitters I know but if I want to know ahead of time what the slant is going to be this helps. Done with yellow journalists.
  • (2019-02-19) Tarikul islam: Nifty. I’m super curious to know if people are using this and then avoiding certain articles or still reading them even though they get this information ahead of time.
  • (2019-02-11) Elenore Reinhart: Filters out the news. Still up to you what to read since it doesn’t block it.
  • (2019-02-01) Since i can’t stand reading any of the liberal rags out there. And every day it seems like there is just more snowflake whining. Usually I stick to the Twitters I know but if I want to know ahead of time what the slant is going to be this helps. Done with yellow journalists.
  • (2019-01-31) Gopinath Radhakrishnan: I just watched a ted talk about filter bubbles and did some googling ad then wound up here. I get it. We are trapped in a Matrix of algorithms that is hard to break out of. The big companies try to personalize everything for you so much but it's like if I click on one article about a Kardashian they think I'm only interested in that stuff and I swear I'm not. It seems like you can use this to kind of retain the algorithms or to break them even. I dunno. I think it'll take some time for it to do that but we'll see.
  • (2019-01-30) Elahi Hossen: This is great. Don’t even know it’s working in the background until I go to search for news. Then I can check if I should read it or not.
  • (2019-01-30) ginga rayuga: with all talk about facebook and fake news i wanted a way to try to block some of it i already had the trump blocker lol but then i found this it does not block the news but it tells you if its from a real source or what that helps me decide if i should read it
  • (2019-01-24) Marou81 Hardcore Gamer: Service to request robocalls to interrupt a holiday argument and to step back and cool off
  • (2019-01-24) Rohit Ghosh: This is a very good extension.It helps me to determine the political bias and credibility of news articles before I read them.Using this extension I am able to detect fake news in Google Search and in my Facebook News Feed.I recommend this highly.

  • (2018-12-05) Amalia Halikias: I hate clicking on an article *once* and then receiving constant ads or recommendations for similar content, over and over. This is my go-to extension for fixing that problem -- it ID's political bias & gauges an article's credibility before I ever click.
  • (2018-11-19) Michael Bellavia (Michael at HelpGood): Interesting to get a heads up on what I'm reading.
