This news aggregator aims to eliminate bias by representing both the left and the right of the political spectrum in the United States. Utilizing the IBM Watson Tone Indicator, Left/Right News gages the political nature of the news piece and places it on either the left side or right side of the screen. Blue and red coloring also distinguish the democratic and republican articles. Although the political spectrum is a nuanced concept, the highly divisive nature of American politics at this time make it easy to place content in one camp or the other.

From Telegraph Creative, the news aggregator uses AI algorithms to highlight this tonal bias scores content based on emotional indicators like anger, disgust, fear, joy and sadness.
