Is it a duck? Or a bunny? A bandit, a grenade, a wobbly gray-and-black pineapple?

We’ve always seen things differently, but now, in this era of “political bubbles,” we often can’t see past our differences long enough to have meaningful and productive conversations. And that’s a threat to democracy. One that StoryNews is intent on fighting.

At StoryNews, people get to the heart of why they see things the way they do. They take in the news and respond to it with relevant stories from their own lives, asking themselves, “What experiences have led me to feel the way I do about this news?” StoryNews’s mission is to give people of all backgrounds and political persuasions glimpses at each other’s worldviews for the sake of understanding and more open dialogues, both personally and globally.
