About Stand Up Ideas
Stand Up Ideas is launching a digital media platform designed to aggregate and explain the most relevant news stories of the day. Weaponized disinformation, ideological echo chambers, and increased political extremism have made it difficult for many American citizens to stay informed on current events without relying on a political narrative. The platform will address this information asymmetry by providing a news aggregation service for all Americans dedicated to basic democratic norms, principles, and institutions, who stand against the rising threats of populism and authoritarianism in American politics.
