Memeorandum Colors

Browser add-on to visualize linking bias on political websites.


Memeorandum Colors is a Greasemonkey user-script, which works natively in Google Chrome or with the Greasemonkey plugin for Firefox.

When installed, it will color links on Memeorandum based on each site's historical linking activity. The brighter the color, the more they link only to articles in their same group.

Google Chrome

  1. Right-click and save memeorandum_colors.user.js as a file on your computer.
  2. On Windows, click the wrench icon on your toolbar and choose Tools->Extensions. On Mac, click the Windows->Extensions menu item.
  3. Locate the memorandum.user.js file on your computer and drag it onto the Extensions window. Choose "Add."
  4. Visit Memeorandum and wait a moment for the links to color.


  1. Install Greasemonkey.
  2. Restart Firefox.
  3. Click the memeorandum_colors.user.js link above, wait three seconds, and Install.
  4. Visit Memeorandum and wait a moment for the links to color.
