I assure you that creator of the ratings has no interest in social engineering. All ratings were obtained using an auditable methodology, and every failed fact check is shared, detailed, and linked within the source's page. Take care!
- by pelle, 9 months agoRated 5 out of 5This add-on is privacy friendly as it looks up the bias ratings locally (from sources/sources.json). The integration into DuckDuckGo and other sites is very well made. I appreciate that they're acknowledging the US-centric meta-bias in the description. The add-on icon has an ugly white square around it on dark themes.
- by S.Akash, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Awesome add-on. Have two suggestions...
Support for Ecosia would be great(I understand not many users use it, but just mentioning it in case several other people also ask for it).
Another would be to have an icon showing the results in the address bar too(like this no longer updated extension does https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/media-bias-fact-check-icon/).

Developer responseposted a year agoI'm sorry that you feel this way. I can assure you that the source I use adheres reliably to standard American politics. Although this may not be a perfect reflection of all global political views, it would be impossible to find a scale with which everyone agrees.
- by Firefox user 15326900, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5More useful if it was global , subreddits like r/europe or r/unitedkigdom are pretty high in article links and it would be nice if it was available there too
e: apparently it works on there now, thanks
