    So much for “Balanced”

    It’s pretty obvious right off the bat when they ask your news preferences that is is extremely left leaning news. Even the notifications are super politically biased and left. Great idea but absolute DISASTER of execution. It’s just an extension of typical MSM. It’s honestly pretty disheartening they market this as impartial and unbiased.

    Biased Much?

    I kept this app for 10 days just in case I was being over sensitive.... but when I see an article complaining that the President hasn't taken a certain action THEN see another article complaining when he takes the action he was exhorted to take I gotta find my news elsewhere.

    If you are a liberal then you will love this app. This app is as far left as can be. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me. All I want is something in the middle. This app is not in the middle. They are far far left and it is gag worthy.
