A neat tool for determining the reliability of your news source. ⬇️
NewsGuard Technologies trained journalists assess news websites for credibility and transparency.
Our team of trained journalists and experienced editors is rating and reviewing thousands of news and information websites based on nine journalistic criteria—such as whether the site regularly publishes false content, reveals conflicts of interest, discloses financing, or publicly corrects reporting errors.
We assign each news website a red or green rating—indicating its trustworthiness.
Depending how a site performs on our nine criteria, it is assigned a color rating. Sites with green ratings follow basic standards of accuracy and accountability. Sites with red ratings do not.
NewsGuard’s analysts write a detailed description of each site they rate, describing the site’s background, ownership, content, and why it received its rating—including its performance on each of the nine criteria.
Our Green-Red ratings signal if a website is trying to get it right or instead has a hidden agenda or knowingly publishes falsehoods or propaganda.
