Coronavirus Misinformation (via NewsGuard)

Coronavirus Misinformation Center (NewsGuard Technologies, Inc.)
Founded in 2018, NewsGuard is a for-profit venture that assigns a nutrition label assessment – and ultimately a color coded rating -  to digital news sources.

  • The inventory of dubious news websites tracked by NewsGuard has always been free to access
     
  • NewsGuard is waiving its $2.95 personal membership fee for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis for those interested in downloading their full browser plugin (works on Chrome, Safari, Edge and Firefox browsers, and on Edge mobile browsers for iOS and Android devices)
     
  • The tool can be applied for news website evaluation not limited to coverage of the Coronavirus
    ​ 
  • Students and other researchers are encouraged to apply a wide assessment criteria when evaluating sources, and in most cases not limit their assessments or rankings to any single review source or service (seek out multiple points of view in multiple respected sources).  See also the section of short online learning modules, under "Evaluating Information," within SU Libraries Credo Information Literacy Tutorials.  These review key principles for assessing information sources.
