  • All news sites are given a green rating, even if they are full of bias or trash
  • Do not use this add-on. It contains spyware, e.g. Google Analytics.

    As it does not use Google Analytics' AnonymizeIP option, this add-on is illegal in the European Union, as is the corresponding website: https://privacyscore.org/site/135929/
  • Doesn't update very opinionated too.
  • Addon discutibile, giornale di sinistra = attendibile, di destra= non attendibile.
  • 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. I tried to add on about six months later hoping for some impartiality, but no still left wing. The DNC must be proud.
  • 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.
