Hi nhmcclellan, do you mean in the Recommended by Pocket section?

These are articles popular with Pocket users. Maybe conservatives don't save articles in Pocket, or that's where they get other perspectives? Anyway, if you don't find that section helpful, you can turn it off.

To manage the panels on the home / new tab page:

menu button > Settings > General > Home

In the Panels section, tap and adjust as needed.

I just find it distasteful that it is used as your default home screen. I would find it much more appealing if topics from all sides where shared and people could make there own opinions. Many people use apps like this for an information sorce and to see such a one sided default in todays political environment is very disappointing.

Hi

Thank you for your feedback.

I believe that this concern is one that the Pocket team are aware of and may consider as part of their content selection process in the future.
