Creativity and the Spirit of Man is what lifts us all up. I don't know if this mobile ap or interent ap tool exists... Does it? Seems like it would function as a Firewall ... with adjustable settings ... maybe using a search engine module. A Tool or Ap that warns:
1) You are about to visit a Right Slanted News site
2) You are about to visit a Left Slanted News Site
3) You are visiting a democracy slanted News Site
4) You are visiting a Right Wing Think Tank website
5) You are visiting a Left Wing Think Tank website
6) You are visiting a Lobbyist Website, do you wish to continue?
7) You are visiting a MSM New site which has questionable Info
8) You are visiting a conspiracy or indepth news site
9) You are visiting a conspiracy theory or alternate news site
10) You are visiting an Alternative News website
11) You are visiting an opinion or forum website
12) You are visiting an article publishing website or clearing house
13) You are visiting an acedemic website
The point would be mostly to get a warning when getting news from Slanted News or Quasi News websites. You could set parameters to block or ignore right wing think tanks or News Shills for the Right ... or the Left if you wanted.
Sort of just would like a banner or highlight that reveals website is Right Wing Think Tank. Like a Yellow or Red Banner ... or a flashing gif that calls your attension to this. A safety Device for Kids & Students?
I suppose it would work better if joined to a Search Engine, so that all web searches could be limited to the kind of websites that you want.
What Do You Think of this? Are these out there already?
