Public Librarians' Chat: NewsGuard Using Journalism to Fight Fake News
During this webinar, Anna-Sophie Harling of NewsGuard will share information about her organization's efforts to fight false news, misinformation and disinformation. NewsGuard-a group of experienced journalists with diverse backgrounds who research news websites and using criteria that rates their credibility and transparency creates a "Nutrition Label" for each one, the label explains who and what's behind the website and whether or not to proceed with caution. NewsGuard is offering libraries free browser extensions which they may use on their public library computers. Research has shown that when members of the public are provided a news source rating tool they were less likely to share false news, misinformation and disinformation.
