Credder Opens Its Beta Site to the Public

Earlier this year, Credder, the news review site designed to fight fake news, launched a beta site for journalists. As of May 27, 2019, that beta site will be open for the public to critically engage with the news using Credder’s five-category review system.

Adjacent to each article is an option to rate it, indicating whether the article is to be trusted or contains a mistake (for example, a misused term, a misused image or video, or a factual error)  or why it might be considered illogical (due to, for example, speculation, generalization, or emotional appeal), biased (due to, for example, gender bias, political agenda, or financial incentive), or not credible (due to, for example, use of satire, a lack of reliable sources, or the author or website not being credible). A text box is available for comments.

The ratings by journalists (and now the rest of us) will feed into credibility scores for journalists and publications on a leaderboard. The goal of the three co-founders (Chase Palmieri, Austin Walter, and Jared Fesler) is to celebrate good journalism and build trust in news sources. For more about Credder, listen to an interview with Palmieri at projectcensored.org/credder-the-future-of-validated-news.
