Now Seeking Community Support via Kickstarter, The Site will Enable News Junkies to Understand the Partisan Bias in Media!
Highland Park, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/27/2018 -- Piercing the Bubble is the ultimate online platform created by news junkies, for news junkies and it is all about the news. The website will enable people who want to know what's happening in the world around them to understand the partisan bias in the media and will let them see all sides of the picture. Moreover, the creators of this digital media platform have recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds and support for the project, and their goal is to raise a sum of $40,000.
"Our vision is to help people make these decisions in a more effective, informed way, and we aim to do this by showing them content from across the spectrum." Said Dr. Elena Gerstmann, the co-founder of Piercing the Bubble, while introducing her project to the Kickstarter community. "We intend to show people the broad spectrum of coverage and if stories are covered similarly across that spectrum, or whether it is much more intense on one side or other."
Piercing the Bubble fills a gap for those who care about the quality of their news sources. "There are many news aggregation sites and there are sites that examine how partisan individual news sources are," said Dr. Gerstmann, "but nothing that pulls it all together like Piercing the Bubble will."
As co-founder Marc Beebe said, "With Piercing the Bubble, we hope to help people see not just that different news sources vary in how they cover any individual story but help them recognize that even which stories that get covered can vary tremendously."
The Kickstarter Campaign is located on the web at: www.kickstarter.com/projects/egerstmann/piercing-the-bubble-the-site-for-news-junkies. Backers from around the world can contribute in this project by making pledges and donations. The campaign is already creating a buzz among the news junkies worldwide.
More details are available on the Kickstarter campaign page of the project.
About Piercing the Bubble
Piercing the Bubble is an inspiring upcoming digital media platform that has been designed to show the partisan bias of the media. Most people who follow news typically only see and read articles that confirm their own bias (hence, they stay in their bubble). This platform will help individuals "pierce their bubble" and see articles across the partisan spectrum while understanding how some stories aren't even covered by part of the partisan spectrum.
