WhoSaidSo.org features Index and Concordance to current affairs. Examples of pages on the site are "Index to the Bill of Rights", "Concordance to the combined comments of Trump and Clinton on issues" which juxtaposes their comments on different topics and "Index and Concordance to Paradise Papers".

A typical line on a page looks like this:

What is a Concordance?

A concordance is the list of significant terms in a text along with the context in which those terms appear. The first major concordance for an English text was published in 1550 for the Bible. Later on concordances were created for the works of Shakespeare and other major authors. In 2016 Who Said So Network applied the concept of concordance to the transcripts of the United States Presidential Debates. In the "Concordance of the 2016 Debates" website there are dozens of pages, containing hundreds of topics.

Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough,
A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse - and Thou
Beside me singing in the Wilderness -
And Wilderness is Paradise enow.
