Yet another news source?

Here’s what one expert had to say….

Ashleigh Banfield
Veteran journalist, News Nation
"I’m getting a little tired of these news silos out there. They say they’re news but they are philosophy wrapped in headlines. The Factual has made it their mission to let consumers know what they’re reading, where there’s bias, where there’s ill-equipped expertise, where there are thin sources. This is great!"

What is
The Factual?

Every day over 10,000 articles are published on hundreds of news topics. How do you decide what to read? Are you seeing the best story on any topic?

The Factual automatically analyzes how informative a story is based on diversity of sources, factual tone of writing, author's expertise, and more.

  • Get facts, not opinions.
  • See multiple perspectives, across the political spectrum.
  • Have useful discussions, without flame wars or echo chambers.

"Get friends to enjoy news as it used to be."
"The Factual does what it says. It tells the primary news stories in a way that leaves the chaff behind."
"Best way to get all the news I need, without drowning myself in news."
"I hate being distracted by the news cycle. I wanted to read critical news once a day and be aware of the bias inherent in all reporting. Boom, the Factual. I have sanity, mental health, and awareness of critical issues with a 15 minute morning email and read. Thanks."

The Factual

We love to read the news. But in the age of clickbait and biased news, we lost confidence in which stories and sources to trust.

So we decided to apply what we learned at Stanford and IIT Madras to restore faith in the news.
