Credder Aims to Aggregate Scores of News Articles

Frederic Filloux reports the following for Monday Note:

No one has ever attempted to create a review system for news comparable to what Rotten Tomatoes is to the movie business. Reasons are multiple: assembling a team of reviewers for news is tricky; the appreciation of news material itself is highly subjective; bias is an issue as readers who chose to evaluate a story usually [harbor a] strong opinion about it; the whole process is vulnerable to manipulation and trolling—especially in an increasingly polarized society …

Credder, a startup based North of San Francisco, sits at the opposite of our project. While we try to rely exclusively on algorithms to evaluate stories, Credder is all about human scoring.

The platform is currently in private beta. You can register to get an invitation. The public beta will be launched in May.
