  • Provata e a prima vista molto deludente (sembra solo uno strumento di propaganda), non basta che sia un quotidiano famoso e registrato per rendere le notizie: vere. Poi SI e NO è limitativo, sulla voce "Non pubblica ripetutamente notizie false" sarebbe bene avere una scala logaritmica da 1 a 10 per valutare quante notizie non verificate sono pubblicate. Non ripetutamente può anche essere una notizia falsa e non verificata alla settimana.

    Non prenderà piede, senza aprire a qualche funzione social come votazioni da parte degli utenti / lettori sulle testate stesse.

    Manca poi una voce sull'indipendenza politica, che è la vera piaga di molti quotidiani Italiani. soprattutto per le notizie che omettono di dare.

    Sarebbe più utile un sistema simile ai filtri anti-spam, dove il punteggio è più complesso e presenta anche informazioni su quante fake-news sono state pubblicate e quanti giorni sono passati dall'ultimo evento. Invece semplici SI / NO basati solo sull'autorevolezza della fonte.
  • NewsGuard is great!
  • Very simple extension that gives every news coming from a left oriented website a verified status.
  • This is leftist propaganda. Completely bias. They rate SPLC as trustworthy LOL. Websites in favor of free speech or critical of Islam are not trustworthy (right...)
  • Very left wing rating site. They have listed Buzzfeed as a reliable news source, I think that says it all.
  • Amazing tool that assists in separating those who spread false propaganda and verifiable facts.
  • Great addon, even better for upsetting trumplings
  • Absolute garbage! After the blatant lies of Buzzfeednews that website still gets 9/9 green stars! While a more balanced outlet like Fox gets 6/9? Let's take CNN, the penultimate standard for fake news - 9/9 green stars even if they were caught multiple times fabricating and misreporting facts! Let's take a very independent news outlet DemocracyNow.org Gets 7/9 where one red flag is regularly corrects errors - WOW, CNN makes more errors in a day than any other news source. Townhall gets a red for deceptive headlights - HAHAHA and CNN's headlines are not deceptive or even overly biased? OMG, It's so true - you can only rely on your own research and not on ANY outlet ever - that's why the internet was made - LOOK for first hand videos and accounts and only then do believe what the news outlets tell you!
  • This plugin is an excellent resource for determining the general reliability of a news source..
    It should be noted though that the plugin does not claim, nor could it reasonably claim to verifiy any news source as 100% reliable.

    One further observation, almost every negative review comes from someone who tried to use this to verify their pre-existing assumptions about a news source, and dismisses the validity of the plugin because it does not confirm their existing presumptions - curiously enough the very target audience most biased sources prefer, imagine that.
  • Politically motivated and biased newspeak tool. INGSOC would be so proud.
  • Poor attempt to censor and control information. Do your own research, trust your instinct and don't be told what is unreliable or not by "Newsguard" which tells you to trust sites that flat out lie to you.
  • Lol, what a joke: CNN, arguably less than stellar in it's reporting get a 100% green rating on all 9 points (avoids deceptive headlines? really??), while FoxNews, also arguably less than stellar, gets 3 red marks for corrections, ownership disclosure and conflicts of interest. What a joke, both "news" and "guard" should be in "air quotes" for this plugin!!!
  • There is no perfect solution to fake news other than taking personal resposibility for the time and effort requird to verify information. This plugin is simply a tool which can give an indication to how trustworthy a source is likely to be. There are a lot of lazy 1-star reviews from people angry that their most loved or most hated news outlet isn't rated how they want it to be. That is missing the point. I personally disagree with just about everything that is published by the British Tabloid "The Daily Mail" - but it gets a green rating overall and gets 6 out of 9 greens. half of these green ratings are for transparency - for all it's nasty content the mail doesn't hide what it is - it is the rightwing mouthpiece of Viscount Rothermere, a member of the British aristocracy. Whilst the reporting in the daily mail is heavily biased, this is not what newsguard claims to rate.
    Furthermore - rather than criticise newsguard for changing the rating for the daily mail from red to green (as they recently did), I admire their openness to change. The mail previously rated less well for openness, probably because when contacted by newsguard originally they weren't forthcoming with the information requested, and deservedly got rated badly for openness. Once the mail made this information available newsguard rightly changed their rating.
    I think the most helpful review below is unsurprisingly the most considered one, by concentricbrainwaves. I also agree that having an amber rating would be helpful, and in the case of the daily mail, would probably be appropriate. This is really my only negative - the overall rating is not as useful as it should be and to get genuinely useful ratings you will need to view the details 9-point breakdown. To make the overall rating more useful it should only be possible to get green overall with a higher score than 6/9 - probably 8/9
  • Diese App ist nicht nur überflüssig, sondern gefährlich.

    Überflüssig, weil man dann gelcih auf selbst denken und Internet verzichten kann und den Fernseher mit ZDF oder WDR einschalten kann.

    Gefährlich ist es, weil damit die ohnehin schon schlimmen Versuche, eine ideologische Einheitsmeinung durchzusetzen, verstärkt werden (was wohl auch das Ziel ist). Demokratie, Meinungsfreiheit, Kritik an Eliten etc. soll weitgehend unterbunden, Alternativen aus dem Gesichtskreis verbannt werden.

    Ein Beweis ist, dass Mainstreammedien natürlich als korrekt bewertet werden, selbst wenn krasse und offensichtliche Fake News verbreitet werden.
