How Sift helps reduce news anxiety:

Build a knowledge base. Dig into historical context to understand the backstory of today’s contentious issues.

Reframe the narrative. Peer beyond the headlines to explore nuanced perspectives and considerations that go beyond talking points.

Challenge yourself. Test your knowledge by engaging more of your brain with a tactile learning experience.

Take time to think and feel. Pause and reflect on what you know, what you don’t, and how you feel.

This is not a substitute for the hyper polarized news as I was hoping, but it is an interesting and informative deeper look at immigration. I would say it skews slightly left, but is far from propaganda as some reviews claim. They give lots of reputable sources to back up the data and seem solidly fact based but leave out some major points in my opinion, particularly those that don’t play in favor of immigration. Really nice interface. I would give it a second chance with another topic if they come out with more.

Try this.

Sift presents well documented details and figures of respected data presented in a straightforward manner.

The information is presented cleanly and is well scaffolded to build on understanding one part of a subject to the next. It is accompanied by easy to read, informative, visual data.

I get the sense that many of the negative reviewers were coming around to the actual data on immigration (legal and illegal) and the many complex nuances of the subject that usually get lost in the noise. But this unfamiliar information doesn't fit into the the same old dog and pony of their own said "echo chamber" — and so they feel betrayed.

Some of negative reviews posted here would have you believe that Sift is part of some liberal conspiracy propaganda indoctrination. As a conservative on many things, even I don't believe that. That's all kinds of crazy. Like this country right now.

Why don't you put on your actual critical thinking hat if you have one, conservative or liberal, and see for yourself?

A very good data presentation format.

Sift presents information about popular news items sort of like a PowerPoint presentation. It dissects the information down into facts and numbers regarding the topic in chunks that are easy to understand.

Other reviewers for this app seem to think it has a “liberal” bias. This highlights how mindlessly our public has latched onto the propaganda teat. Sift doesn’t present information with an editorial viewpoint. The data that is presented is simply that - numbers and statistics around a current topic.

Data isn’t liberal or biased in any way. It’s simply data. And Sift does a very good job at presenting it.
