About Us

Unbiased news. Trending topics.

The news experience is frustrating.

With everything becoming politicized, the news increasingly caters to political extremes and is seen as biased by 83% of people.

In contrast, The Factual is building a community where people who want to understand the whole story can easily get the facts - all for a single affordable subscription, with zero ads.

We are applying the knowledge gained at Stanford, IIT Madras, and MIT, to build the best news experience and make it easy to be well informed. Join the unbiased movement and help people trust the news again.
