TruthGuard is the internet's first newspaper, blog and magazine rating system combined with a fake news reporting extension for Google Chrome. TG is currently in Beta, so we appreciate any bug reports, feedback or feature suggestions! Use the contact form to get in touch with us.
TruthGuard uses a wiki-like model, so anyone can sign up and submit ratings and add/edit publications.

TruthGuard (currenly in Beta, so please report any bugs) is an attempt to hold newspapers, blogs and magazines accountable for the content they publish. Using a wiki-like model, users can submit ratings, add new publications to be rated, and report fake news stories they find around the web. The idea of TG is simple: if you can rate doctors, teachers, restaurants, hotels and other types of businesses, why not content producers? After all, fake news are rampant these days and are negatively influencing every layer of our society.
At TruthGuard, we believe that the only way to solve the proliferation of fake news is by a mass effort from all web users. Until now, people didn't really have an outlet to report a fake news story. Sure, they could go on Facebook, Twitter and report the story there, but only their immediate friends and followers would see it. With TruthGuard's free Chrome extension, users can now report the story as fake using the extension's easily accessible button on their browser, and their report will be immediately added to the publication's profile. Moreover, users who land on that story in the future will see a popup warning them that the story was reported as fake.

We are especially interested in people who have deep knowledge and experience in digital media, journalism, politics, digital law and other relevant field.
