NewsGuard claims to fight fake news, but it merely trashes web sites for which it has a political disagreement. It hides behind reviews that only appear to NewsGuard users and are not made publicly available in a manner in which they can be corrected or commented on. NewsGuard provides very little proof of its contentions other than claiming certain articles or false or saying there is disagreement about a certain point. NewsGuard is not a reliable source for information about fake news web sites.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 12814696, vor einem MonatBewertet mit 2 von 5 SternenNewsguard seems to take a good approach. However, I also have the impression that Newsguard itself is not entirely open and transparent about what opinions and currents are represented there. The ratings sometimes seem a bit biased, while pages of dubious reputation sometimes come off surprisingly well.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 14179079, vor einem MonatBewertet mit 1 von 5 SternenI would advise against this add-on. After use and research, I've found it to be more of an opinion-based censor than an actual truth-verifying app of any use.
- von MrFrodo, vor 2 MonatenBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenThe app was founded by one right-leaning and one left-leaning news entrepreneur, and their advisory board has people that worked for both Democrat and Republican administrations. Read their detailed reviews of sites, not just the nutrition label, before you knock this extension. It is a needed resource these days. They also have adjusted ratings based on communications with the sites they review, and this is included in the detailed article. As a more liberal news consumer, I have used the extension to both widen and fine-tune my news consumption, finding solid sources on the other side to check my own narrow lens and also finding out shortcomings with some of the sites I frequent.
