John Long is on a mission to lessen the political divide in the United States with his mobile news app Gnomi.

Gnomi offers transparent, simple and clear slant grading of top news articles. John employs a proprietary grading system that combines human graders, algorithms and machine learning to produce an objective and true slant on news articles.

He hopes this new found transparency in news media will provide citizens with a better understanding of current issues, lessen the political divide amongst those with different views and produce a feeling of safety for all to voice their opinions.
