The biases of news shown graphically in newsmap.  You can flip between countries to see national biases.  It seems to be mostly North America, Western Europe, Australia and with India thrown in, which already presents a huge problematic bias, but it’s pretty cool anyway. 

From the website –

Newsmap does not pretend to replace the googlenews aggregator. Its objective is to simply demonstrate visually the relationships between data and the unseen patterns in news media. It is not thought to display an unbiased view of the news; on the contrary, it is thought to ironically accentuate the bias of it.
