REDMOND – NewsGuard, an app pre-installed in Microsoft’s mobile Edge browser to combat ‘fake news’, gives Mendaco Press the highest journalistic trust rating.
“Our team of trained journalists and experienced editors rate and review thousands of news and information websites based on nine journalistic criteria — such as whether the site regularly publishes false content, reveals conflicts of interest, discloses financing, or publicly corrects reporting errors. Mendaco Press was rated highly by our team of experts for having impeccable journalistic standards,” said NewsGuard representative in an interview with Mendaco Press.
NewsGuard joins a handful of other groups such as the Trust Project and the Journalism Trust Initiative which aim to help readers discern which sites are credible when many readers have trouble distinguishing fact from fiction.
