The Ideological Media Map

The Ideological Media Map

An interactive test of how open-minded your news diet is.

Slate wants to help you discover your own isolation index. So we’ve created a little program that allows you to see for yourself how open-minded you are—at least according to your browsing history.

Remember: This isn’t about your own political views—it’s about those of your fellow readers. So if your online diet only consists of the Drudge Report, the New York Post, and, you’re going to come across as pretty isolated. If you make occasional forays to the New York Times and Huffington Post, you’ll seem catholic. Our calculations don’t include how long you spent on each page—only that you’ve been.
