NewsElect aims to create an innovative way to read news by alternating between articles of different political leanings. To encourage people to read across the political spectrum, NewsElect pairs up the latest progressive and conservative articles on the election.
NewsElect believes that news is not for one-time consumption. Good articles deserve to be revisited. In this spirit, NewsElect is designed to let people compare current articles to past articles to see how candidates' positions have changed.
No single news-bias rating system is perfect; that is why NewsElect includes bias ratings from two sources: Media Bias Fact Check and AllSides. For more information, please read NewsElect's Use of External Resources in the app.
NewsElect is not-for-profit. The funding comes from MiddChallenge, the Creativity and Innovation Program at Middlebury College. NewsElect gives special thanks to Middlebury's faculty, staff members and alumni.
Please contact us if you have any questions, comments or concerns. We especially welcome contact from: 1). Programmers who want to join the development of NewsElect; 2). Organizations who want a customized version of NewsElect; 3). Writers, journalists, and political scientists who want to cooperate with NewsElect.

Ratings and Reviews
Hope it updates daily
This is a great app, if only the app updates daily. I know the idea of the app is to let you compare articles from different dates, but it would still be great if it updates daily. Other than that, I love it.
Wonderful app allowing you to compare and digest information from different sources. Hope to be able to open news sites within the app and share what one’s reading with friends.
This is an app for people who get confused and disoriented in the present American political landscape. It helps you know what candidates stand for on which issues. I may update this review if possible.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
