Online social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have emerged as popular destinations for users to receive, share, and discuss news about the world around them. Unlike traditional media, today there is no mechanism available for the social media users to know the biases of the news publishers. In this proposal, we argue for bringing in transparency in the news production and dissemination over social media. More specifically, our aim is to build a tool for the news readers, which makes the biases of news publishers and promoters transparent
