This current affairs website hopes to address the so-called 'echo chamber' created by online media. Based in the United States, The Perspective is a digital news platform that aims to provide two sides to every story, allowing readers to take a more empathetic approach and understand where the other side might be coming from.

The current affairs website aims to broaden minds and fight fiercely felt divides and polarization in American society and beyond with features "designed to persuade readers to consider ideas threatening to their worldview." Due to social media filters, search algorithms and similar tactics, many content consumers are not exposed to contradicting political views. Currently The Perspective is focusing on hot topics and gamified challenges that encourage listening to opposing opinions.
