News Provenance Project

The News Provenance Project seeks to diminish the spread of misinformation by empowering readers to make more informed, confident judgments about the news they see online.

Misinformation Is a Growing Problem. Misinformation is a complex and growing problem, accelerated by new technologies and exacerbated by bad actors who aim to deliberately mislead.

Journalists Seek the Truth. News organizations strive to present information as accurately as possible, offering background on what they have learned and verified during reporting.
