After months of hype, mobile streaming service Quibi launched earlier this year with a roster full of A-list talent. The company’s key feature is Turnstyle, technology that allows you to flip between landscape and portrait viewing seamlessly (tech a lawsuit alleges Quibi is using without permission). Now that the initial free trial period is up, Quibi appears to be losing a lot of its users.

Conservative bias is a common refrain from President Trump and other Republican lawmakers. While the debate has been raging for a while now, evidence supporting either side has varied in quality, accuracy and factual details.
