Summary
Play Stupid Politics™ lets you judge the news in order to expose media bias and fake news.

All the player data we collect is used to build aggregated news from different political perspectives allowing any news reader access to a view of the news they can trust.

So, stop being a bystander while the media plays stupid games with politics. Pick your team (Blue, Purple or Red) and begin to set the record straight. It just takes a few quick clicks to identify the political leanings of an article and how truthful you believe the article or video to be.

Then read the news from your team or visit playstupidpolitics.com to see how other teams are judging the news.
Safety
Risk impact

Play Stupid Politics requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Play Stupid Politics if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Play Stupid Politics may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to.
