BasedNews is a forthcoming Android app that curates intellectually-honest analysis and cultural content from a carefully chosen list of journalists, bloggers, and online content creators. The goal of this approach is to revisit the art of curation in an age of aggressive censorship and propaganda, in an effort to inform and inspire readers while bypassing mainstream media filters/bottlenecks. The app functions similar to RSS feeds, but without the overload, and is geared toward users who value nuance and critical thinking.
