The Trust Project, a consortium of top news companies led by award-winning journalist Sally Lehrman, is developing transparency standards that help you easily assess the quality and credibility of journalism.
Over two years, Trust Project researchers interviewed people in the U.S. and Europe to find out what’s important to them when it comes to news.
The News Integrity Initative is a global consortium focused on helping people make informed judgments about the news they read and share online. See https://www.facebook.com/facebookmedia/blog/working-to-stop-misinformat…
The News Integrity Initiative (NII) at the Newmark J-School was launched in 2017 to advance media literacy and increase trust in journalism.
The Journalism Trust Initiative aims at a healthier information space.
It is developing indicators for trustworthiness of journalism and thus, promotes and rewards compliance with professional norms and ethics.
JTI is led by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in partnership with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Global Editors Network (GEN) and Agence France Presse (AFP).

The Global Disinformation Index (GDI) aims to disrupt, defund and down-rank disinformation sites. We collectively work with governments, business and civil society. We operate on three core principles of neutrality, independence and transparency.
Their mission is to catalyse change within the tech industry to disrupt the incentives to create and disseminate disinformation online.
Today, we need access to the truth more than ever before. But in this polluted information environment, it’s never been harder to know what to trust, and never easier to be misled. Misinformation is targeting and damaging our communities, all around the world.
At First Draft, our mission is to protect communities from harmful misinformation. We work to empower society with the knowledge, understanding, and tools needed to outsmart false and misleading information.
The Credibility Coalition serves as a nexus for addressing the issue of information credibility. Members of our coalition facilitate, organize and take part in a variety of activities to advance our goals, including:

Cortico aims to foster constructive public conversation in communities and the media that improves our understanding of one another.
A non-profit in cooperation with the MIT Media Lab, Cortico builds systems that bring under-heard community voices, perspectives and stories to the center of a healthier public dialogue.
Cortico’s Local Voices Network (LVN) combines in-person and digital listening to host, analyze and connect community conversations at scale. This includes:
Claim Buster allows for fact checking of individual personal claims or claims by public officials. Users can insert their own claims or links to claims said publically to find out their factuality.
BotSlayer is an application that helps track and detect potential manipulation of information spreading on Twitter. The tool is developed by the Observatory on Social Media at Indiana University --- the same lab that brought to you Botometer and Hoaxy.
