In this month’s Monitor, we explore how NewsGuard Red-rated sites in France and Germany, inspired by the 2020 U.S. election, are publishing similar false narratives about European politics and how anti-vaxxers in Italy and France are spreading false claims about how COVID-19 vaccines cause variants of the virus.
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.

NewsGuard adds an extra layer of protection as the only process that involves human beings—trained journalists—reviewing every website. Learn More
