Public Editor is an independent, non-profit (501c3) that provides credibility scores for news articles, journalists, public figures and news sites by guiding volunteers to complete online media literacy tasks identifying argumentative fallacies, psychological biases, inferential mistakes, and other misleading content.
With a transparent & non-partisan process, they’re engaging thoughtful citizens in a massive effort to clean up the news.
They started by pulling together centuries of knowledge about how people mislead each other, intentionally or not. Then they paired that with new collaborative technology that guides people to carefully find and label the faulty reasoning that can lead us astray.
With Public Editor’s informative labels and credibility scores, newsreaders won’t be fooled, & won’t share misinformation with their online friends & family.
