How does it work?
For news articles about politics, you’ll see a slider at the top of your results, as shown below.
To see news from different perspectives, simply click and move the slider. Neeva will swap news sources in and out reflecting their generally-accepted positions on the political spectrum. Using the slider, you can quickly adjust the news to see articles from the following positions:
- Only sources on the left, with left-most sources prioritized
- All left sources, with some moderate sources
- Center and moderate sources from either side
- All right sources, with some moderate sources
- Only sources on the right, with right-most sources prioritized
To return to the original articles that were presented, just click Reset and the news will return to the original setting, with top sources mixed together.
Why did you build Bias Buster?
At Neeva, we work for our members, and one thing we heard loud and clear is that news search needs a change. The Internet has made information more freely available than at any other time in history, but at the same time digital tools make it easy to put blinders on to differing viewpoints. It has never been easier to reduce our exposure to alternative thoughts and opinions that can challenge our own biases.
While there is no silver bullet to solving polarization, we hope a tool like Bias Buster can begin to help mend the gap, or at least, help us see the size of it. For more information check out our blog.
How did you categorize the sources?
The categorizations of the sources you see are based on the generally accepted position of the source according to a number of outside sources, including Ad Fontes Media, All Sides, Media Bias/Fact Check, and others.
Do I have to use Bias Buster to see news results on Neeva?
Not at all! Using Bias Buster is completely optional. Bias Buster will not change the way Neeva presents the news unless it is used. We will still provide you with a wide variety of sources, similar to what you might see in other places.
Does Bias Buster work with NeevaAI?
Yes! When we show you NeevaAI results for news searches,
