Came across this site and thought ATS might get a kick out of it.

www.their.news...

Finally, a place where freedom hating commies and gun toting alt-right fascists can come together to get their news from.

Enter a search for a politically charged topic, or just click the random shuffle button, and a variety of stories will appear. Select how far left or right you want the bias to be.

An example search for immigration on the far left you'll get stories from MSNBC, the daily kos, alternet.

On the far right you'll get your stories from Breitbart, daily caller, conservative review.

The bar actually does seem to scale pretty well so the closer to the middle on each side you go, the less extremely biased the source seems to be.

It's kind of fun swapping between left and right for different searches.

It uses the media bias data from

www.adfontesmedia.com...

So, take it all with a grain of salt. But, it does give a quick way of showing just how different two articles on the same topics can be depending on the bias.

Finally a site for people who are proud of their confirmation bias.

Good find.

Wow I'm lame.

This is a brilliant idea! I can’t wait to confirm my bias!

This intrigues me. I haven't imagined looking for a site that supports my suspicions. Most of the time, I look for information that answers my questions.
