SAGE Supports News Analysis Tool

SAGE is offering a $50,000 sponsorship to PublicEditor, a content analysis tool for news articles that is run by volunteers. “A nonpartisan project, the tool uses transparent, neutral criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of news articles resulting in credibility scores for the news,” according to the press release.

It continues, “Members of the public wanting to help in the editing process receive training and then the Public Editor web interface guides them to read passages from news articles and respond to a few prompts that help them identify mistakes made by journalists and those they quote. … Identified mistakes are also labeled so that news readers understand the quality of the news through a colorful overlay of the text. Content platforms can use Public Editor’s credibility scores to promote high quality journalism while reducing the quantity of sloppy content appearing in news feeds.”

SAGE’s support will fund the creation of videos, updated websites, a social media campaign, and more.

For more information, read the press release.
