    New news source ratings website to start

    Here's an idea whose time has definitely come. A website that will rate the trustworthiness of news sources. I know that there are others out there now that claim that but their methodologies are often questioned. This article explains how this site is supposed to be better.

    A great idea. I hope it takes off.

    But we all know that the deluded will still only accept the officially sanctioned KoolAid.

    Steve Brill founder of American Lawyer, Court TV, Brill's Content, and the Yale Journalism Initiative has almost finished raising $6 million to launch News Guard, which will rate news content so search and social-media platforms can help their users know what to trust.

    Everyone will call it fake news if they do not like it.

    I'm going to assume you have read the threads here where the fake fact checker websites have been exposed for what they are.

    Is it too far of a stretch to suspect the same of this new site that suppose to check the "trustworthiness" of the news?

    People should be more guarded with their trust of sources these days. It used to be Wiki and other open-edited websites were untrustworthy because the 'can be edited by anyone' but the reality is, that's the entire internet.

    And honestly, anyone claiming to be "trustworthy" is the one you should be most watchful.

    Great link, thanks for sharing.
