This news aggregation app attempts to dismantle journalistic bias by always presenting three sides to every story. The Perspecs app comes from the digital production team at the British publishing firm Trinity Mirror. The news platform moves away from partisan journalism and towards a more balanced approach, incorporating both opinion and straight facts.

The news aggregation app uses a variety of sources internationally, from the BBC, Daily Mail and Daily Mirror locally in the UK to CNN, the New York Times and even Russia Today abroad. This way, Perspecs readers can switch between three different pieces providing a left-wing, center and right-wing perspective. For sports stories, users can read three different predictions.

While this will undoubtedly take more time, the added context is something missing from other media outlets.
