Why license NewsGuard?

Help teams share quality information by identifying which news and information websites are generally reliable—and which ones are not.

NewsGuard’s analysts are experienced journalists with varied backgrounds who apply nine basic, apolitical criteria of journalistic practice to all the news and information websites that account for 95%-plus of online engagement in the countries in which we operate. Each site is rated green or red, on a scale from 1 to 100, with a Nutrition Label. Users get instant information about the trustworthiness of the sources they see in search results and their social media feeds.

Rely on a trusted third party to rate news websites.

NewsGuard is a fully transparent, independent and trusted source for ratings about news sites. A Gallup poll found that 90% of consumers trust “experienced journalists with varied backgrounds” more than technology companies to rate news sites. Our analysts reach out to websites for comment (algorithms don’t call for comment), and hundreds of news publishers have improved their practices after engaging with our analysts (NewsGuard hopes publishers “game” its system by improving their credibility and transparency practices).

What’s Included:

  • Access to real-time feed of all NewsGuard ratings via API call or data export
  • Overall rating, score out of 100 points, performance on NewsGuard’s nine criteria, written description, and descriptive metadata for each site in database
