"Ground News has made following the news more approachable, affordable, and engaging. I used to be comfortable in my bubble, only reading stories from local sources that I trusted. Thanks to the unparalleled user experience of Ground News, I am proud to say that I’ve “burst my bubble.”"
Mike G.Calgary, Canada
"With Ground, I was able to see stories as they were coming out and which side was reporting and not reporting certain stories. When there was no attention being given on one side of the spectrum, one side of the audience is being kept in the dark. Ground took me from resenting the other side, to being able to understand them. It gave me perspective.”

Does Ground have a political agenda?No, Ground has no political agenda and avoids judging the news or user comments. News is sourced from publications across the political spectrum and flagged with a Bias Rating if a publication presents facts with a partisan lens. The Ground team is happy to receive users from all walks of life, but the platform is independent of users’ political preferences.
Where does the news on Ground come from?The news on Ground comes from 3 types of sources: directly from over 50,000 major news publications (newspapers, news TV channels, news magazines) across the world, trending social media (including select blogs and verified first-hand reports), and Ground users directly reporting from the location. If you cannot find your favorite news publication on Ground, you can submit it for review within the app.
How do I know the news is real and accurate?All sources on Ground are vetted before they are allowed onto the platform. We check both publicly available information on the publication and its history of accurate journalism. Satire sources are allowed but clearly labelled. Although Ground users can suggest news publications for regions or views that they find under-represented, these publications are checked for accuracy of facts before their news is allowed onto Ground.
How does Ground provide a Bias Rating on news stories?The Ground team takes no part in evaluating a Bias Rating on news publications or stories. Bias ratings are averaged from the published ratings by three non-profit news publication monitoring organizations: All Sides, Ad Fontes Media, and Media Bias Fact Check.
How does Ground decide what news stories to show me?Ground endeavors to make users easily, clearly and fully informed on the most important news stories of the day as well as the news most relevant to their personal interests.
Widely reported news can be found in the Top Stories tab. Every user on Ground sees the same Top Stories according to the Edition of Ground that they’re using.

The My Feed tab offers a personalized collection of stories which is algorithmically curated based on stated and observed reading behaviors, and reflects what media sources and interests you’ve followed within the app. Any changes you’ve made to what topics/source you’re following will be reflected here.
