After noticing the recent increase in (self)censorship by mainstream media I created the “Indy News Assistant”. It takes any topic and provides both news sources as well as latest YouTube videos published on the matter.
Here’s the link: https://chat.openai.com/g/g-AvKUgF4F4-indy-news-assistant
To make it easy for those without a ChatGPT subscription here is a public Streamlit app using the same api: https://indy-news.streamlit.app
It uses vectors and bm25 to make search work, and I think it is an interesting and cheap approach. Unfortunately vector searches, like LLMs, suffer from producing irrelevant output, and so this comes with a YMMV warning 😉
