About this app

Ground News analyzes daily breaking stories in real time from thousands of sources - around the world. By threading multiple perspectives from thousands of publications through one, reliable platform, Ground frees people from algorithmic restraints, illuminates blindspots and makes media bias explicit. We’re not better news, we’re a better way to read it.

Our features make it easy to compare how important issues are being covered across the political spectrum so you can free up mental space for critical thinking and read between the lines of biased coverage, no matter the source.

Ground News isn’t a typical aggregator, throwing hundreds of headlines at you that barely skim the surface. We don’t use manipulative algorithms to determine the news you see. Like a modern-day newspaper, our live news feed is the same for everyone. Stay on top of local and world news with our US and International editions or choose specific interests.

Stop having to sift through the politics of a news story. Get unbiased access to the facts so you can think freely. Enjoy our free features, or subscribe for in-depth analysis including:

Disappointed I renewed my yearly subscription. I can't read any of the articles because they don't scale to my S22 Ultra phone screen. There is no setting or zoom feature to fix this. Ground team, please fix it! Update: it mostly seems the affect "The Hill" which I read a lot through Ground since it's one of the best "Center" sources of news. Edit: It seems most of these issues are fixed. I really appreciate having this unique news aggregator app!

It’s really nice to be able to look across a lot of news articles and also see how it is being covered by news outlets. I also learned I can adjust the various outlets bias rating if I feel it is inaccurate. Overall a great concept knowing the “truth” is a rarity in reporting anymore.

Too soon to tell. Only gives headlines to pay only website articles. UPDATE: Having used the app for a few days, I have found it DOES provide more than just headlines. Many are full articles, and most show the same story from different news outlets across the plotical spectrum for comparison. Very useful approach that I normally do manually.
