Why Should You Trust News Guard Tech ?

  • Because we are trained journalists who have spent our careers dedicated to the profession. We care deeply about reliable journalism’s pivotal role in democracy. (In case you’re wondering, our experienced journalists come from diverse backgrounds and have no political axes to grind.)

 

  • Because you can see the credentials and backgrounds of everyone responsible for every NewsGuard reliability rating and Nutrition Label that you read. For the names and biographies of our staff and contributors

 

  • Because we have an ethics and conflicts of interest policy to which all of our analysts and editors have to agree. You can read that policy

 

  • Because we are totally transparent about how we make all of our decisions. Our Nutrition Label write-ups explain what is behind our decisions. We disclose and explain in detail the nine criteria we use to rate each news site on its journalistic practices. We’re not a black box algorithm.

 

  • Because we make concerted attempts to get comment from every website’s editor or manager before we write anything negative about the site, and always include the comment in our Nutrition Labels (or make changes after weighing the comment and realizing our initial conclusion was wrong). Algorithms don’t call for comment.

 

  • Because we will post any complaints from website proprietors about anything we have written about them. And we will answer them publicly – and when warranted will make corrections, publicly, after we consider the complaint. You can read our policy for correcting errors or mistakes

 

  • Because we accept no fees from the news websites we rate. (Our revenue comes from the platforms and search engines for licensing our ratings in order to include them in their feeds and search results.) We rate all news and information sites among the more than 6,000 sites responsible for 95% of engagement with news in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Italy.

 

  • Because bringing more information to people about the news sources they encounter online is our only business. Our success depends entirely on being trustworthy and reliable.

Misinformation site Gateway Pundit dominates coverage of Maricopa County’s election audit; grabs over five percent of all social media engagement on news articles

In this month’s Monitor, we explore how The Gateway Pundit, a conservative news and commentary site with a history of publishing misinformation, has played an outsized role in promoting stories about the election audit in Arizona’s Maricopa County and has spread false claims about the process.

FOR ADVERTISERS

Finally, a way to protect brands by keeping ads off unreliable news websites.

The NewsGuard rating of news websites separates sites that are doing reliable journalism from purveyors of false or misleading news or disinformation. Advertisers use the NewsGuard ratings to build a list of reliable news sites safe for advertising and to keep ads off inappropriate sites.

BrandGuard partners include ad agencies like IPG, and advertising technology platforms such as Peer39, Amobee, TripleLift and many more.

BRAND SAFETY
By licensing the NewsGuard ratings, advertisers limit their advertising, including programmatic advertising, to sites that meet the NewsGuard criteria. Advertisers use this data and related information about sites to craft efficient—and safe—ad campaigns.

Ad tech companies have software to keep brands safe from hate speech and pornography. But artificial intelligence cannot root out false news because false news is designed to look like real news. NewsGuard adds an extra layer of protection as the only process that involves human beings—trained journalists—reviewing every website.

New Guard Tech . Com hiring!

 

At NewsGuard, we believe that the problem of online misinformation is best addressed not by artificial intelligence, but by human intelligence. We use journalism to rate and review thousands of news and information sites—from major media brands to niche blogs to hoax sites that spread falsehoods to generate ad clicks—using nine journalistic criteria and a rigorous, transparent process. By creating a standard for understanding the credibility of news sources online, we aim to restore trust and accountability to journalism.

 

We’re recruiting a diverse, talented team of journalists, editors, fact-checkers, and others to help us do so.

Available Roles:

  • Intern. Work with NewsGuard’s team of award-winning journalists and editors to report and write ratings of news and information sites using NewsGuard’s rating process.
  • Freelance Reporter. Join NewsGuard’s team as a freelance contributing analyst rating and reviewing news sources.
  • Staff Reporter. Join NewsGuard’s team as an analyst rating and reviewing news sources and reporting on trends in digital news and online misinformation.
  • Editor, Business & Finance. Help develop, launch, and grow our newest vertical focused on financial news and information sources.
  • Deputy Editor, Special Reports. Build out and oversee a growing vertical at NewsGuard focused on special reports, newsletters, and other new content.

Building Trust For All

In order to restore trust and accountability in media, we need to build trust in NewsGuard among news consumers from a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives.

That’s why we’re committed to creating a team that is diverse and inclusive in every way possible—one that brings a breadth of different experiences, beliefs and perspectives to the table. We aim to hire journalists from a range of racial and ethnic backgrounds, political perspectives, geographical origins, gender identities, and more. NewsGuard is an equal opportunity employer.

Our ideal candidate values accuracy, fairness, and journalistic rigor.

We look for candidates who…

  • Bring reporting experience. If you want to join the NewsGuard team, be ready to demonstrate that you have the skill and experience to interview sources, conduct research, find primary-source documents, communicate professionally, and avoid bias.

 

  • Call for comment. NewsGuard’s rating process goes beyond just reading and researching sites online. Journalists at NewsGuard know how to be persistent and even dogged, calling sources for comment multiple times if needed. This journalistic approach keeps our ratings as fair and accurate as possible and often results in publishers making improvements to their credibility or transparency practices.

 

  • Strive for fairness. Rating and reviewing news and information sites means encountering a wide range of topics, worldviews and political perspectives. Candidates seeking to join NewsGuard’s team must be committed to treating every site fairly, basing its rating on NewsGuard’s nine journalistic criteria and rating system and nothing else.

 

  • Leave politics at the door. At NewsGuard, we seek to keep politics out of the equation and assess each site based on its journalistic practices. This means avoiding both real and perceived bias. As a NewsGuard analyst, you will need to sign a strict ethics and conflict of interests policy and avoid anything that might create even the perception of bias, such as intemperate social media postings or partisan political activities.

 

  • Adapt and learn. NewsGuard is a startup and a frontrunner in the creation of a new industry—the Cyber Trust industry. NewsGuard team members should be adaptable, ready for change, and eager to contribute new ideas for how we can continue to innovate and improve.
