Get valuable insights on the news you read online.
Nobias helps you determine the political bias and credibility of news articles before you even read them. Adding Nobias to Chrome means you will be able to detect fake news in Google Search and in your Facebook News Feed. Nobias will help you burst your filter bubble and give you more control over the news and information you consume. We alert you to the political slant and credibility of news articles.
We’re like a Fitbit for your media diet. You can consume a bunch of tabloid media, but we all know that isn’t healthy.
★ Political slant checker
Nobias detects the political slant of the article as either left, center or right leaning and highlights that slant with a colored paw print as a ratings system.
★ Credibility checker
Nobias uses LexisNexis databases to show you which news sources have the most reputable editorial boards and the most integrity. You'll be able to read with confidence and avoid tabloid journalism and yellow journalism. Additionally, article level insights include credibility of the author based on employer rating and journalistic award won by the author. It’s a fake news blocker.
★ Useful for everyone
Nobias isn’t just for news junkies, students, and journalists. If you want to know what you’re reading without even clicking, Nobias is for you. It’s a productivity tool for your media consumption. It’s life hack in a Chrome extension.
★ Thousands of news sources tracked
When you use Google Search and Facebook News feed you’ll see the Nobias paw prints next to over 80% of links. Additionally you can see Nobias slants within the news sites of select national and regional newspapers. Note, we are in early stages of development, so not every social media site algorithm or news source is tracked at this time.
