Hey, the guys from NewsTrust are building something new, tools that help people find trustworthy news. Their technology allows everyone to work together to rate and filter the news, and figure out what's fair and factual.
They just got a pretty good grant from the MacArthur Foundation to expand their service. This is for real:
Unlike other social news sites, NewsTrust.net features news and opinions rated by its members based on quality — not just popularity. The non-partisan site's unique review tools empower the public to evaluate fairness, sourcing, context and other core journalistic principles. NewsTrust.net tracks quality ratings and reputation for each news publication under review, to help identify trustworthy sources. The service also ensures the reliability of its evaluations by rating its own reviewers and validating their expertise.
I believe in what these guys are doing, and have contributed my time and money.
