    News Guard - Wir brauchen es nicht und wir wollen es nicht!

    Die "Ach-so-besorgten" Eliten "kümmern" sich mal wieder um das "dumme" Volk!
    Sie haben Angst davor, dass wir denken!
    Aber denken ist verbunden mit Wissen (anstatt "Glauben), und davor haben sie noch mehr Angst!

    NewsGuard is a browser extension made by NewsGuard Technologies. It labels news sources with either a green or red icon, indicating its general trustworthiness and whether it has a history of running stories labeled as fake news. Supported browsers include Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Safari. It is included by default in the mobile version of Edge, though users must enable it.
    Background

    NewsGuard Technologies was founded in 2018 by Steven Brill and L. Gordon Crovitz, who serve as co-CEOs.[1] Investors include the Knight Foundation and Publicis.[2] The NewsGuard extension is installed in browsers and warns users when they view content from fake news websites. Professional journalists employed by NewsGuard Technologies score news sites on their reliability and general trustworthiness. The analysis is designed to be transparent and includes the name of the staffer who analyzed the site. Sites that score at least 60 out of 100 points based on nine criteria display a green icon next to their name, and ones that score lower get a red icon. Users can optionally read more information, including how the sites fared in each criterion.[3] This can also highlight potential conflicts of interest, such as websites that do not disclose that they are financed by lobbying groups.[4]
    Brill positions the extension as an alternative to government regulation and automated algorithms, such as those used by Facebook.[3] The extension is free. For revenue, NewsGuard Technologies licenses their ratings. Clients include technology companies and the advertising industry, who view the ratings as a way to protect clients against advertising on sites that could harm their brand.[2] In January 2019, the extension was integrated into the mobile version of Microsoft Edge, though users must enable it. Sites that had previously ignored the extension, such as MailOnline, objected to being listed as unreliable. Other sites labeled as unreliable include InfoWars, Daily Kos, Sputnik,[5] and Breitbart News.[2] NewsGuard attempts to work with sites they label as unreliable to advise them on how to come into compliance with their criteria.[6] As of January 2019, Brill says the extension includes ratings for the 2000 most popular American news sites. Ratings for more British sites are expected in April 2019.[7]
    The extensions works on Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Safari.[5

    Und wer so etwas schreibt (behauptet!), dem vertraue ich ganz sicher nicht!

    Why Should You Trust Us?


    • Because we are trained journalists who have spent our careers dedicated to the profession. We care deeply about reliable journalism’s pivotal role in democracy. (In case you’re wondering, our experienced journalists come from diverse backgrounds and have no political axes to grind.)
    • Because you can see the credentials and backgrounds of everyone responsible for every NewsGuard reliability rating and Nutrition Label that you read. For the names and biographies of our staff and contributors, click here.
    • Because we have an ethics and conflicts of interest policy to which all of our analysts and editors have to agree. You can read that policy here.
    • Because we are totally transparent about how we make all of our decisions. Our Nutrition Label write-ups explain what is behind our decisions. We disclose and explain in detail the nine criteria we use to rate each news site on its journalistic practices. We’re not a black box algorithm.
    • Because we make concerted attempts to get comment from every website’s editor or manager before we write anything negative about the site, and always include the comment in our Nutrition Labels (or make changes after weighing the comment and realizing our initial conclusion was wrong). Algorithms don’t call for comment.
    • Because we will post any complaints from website proprietors about anything we have written about them. And we will answer them publicly – and when warranted will make corrections, publicly, after we consider the complaint. You can read our policy for correcting errors or mistakes here.
    • Because we accept no fees from the news websites we rate. (Our revenue comes from the platforms and search engines for licensing our ratings in order to include them in their feeds and search results.) We rate all news and information sites among the approximately 4,500 sites responsible for 98% of the online engagement in English in the United States.
    • Because we do not collect any personal information of any kind from those who download and use our browser plug-ins. None. You can read our privacy policy here.
    • Because bringing more information to people about the news sources they encounter online is our only business. Our success depends entirely on being trustworthy and reliable.

    "NewsGuard": Browser-App entscheidet über "glaubwürdige" oder "unglaubwürdige" News (Video)

    Das Unternehmen NewsGuard stellt ein Plugin zur Verfügung, das online sämtliche aufgerufenen Nachrichten in glaubwürdig und unglaubwürdig unterteilt. Nachrichten von RT, Wikileaks oder Sputnik sind gemäß der App mit Vorsicht zu genießen.

    Große Überraschung: Dem hingegen gelten New York Times, Washington Post und sogar Buzzfeed als glaubwürdig. Mit NewsGuard geht der Krieg um die globale Deutungshoheit in eine neue Runde.
    Auf der nächsten Eskalationsstufe werden Browser sogenannte "unglaubwürdige" Nachrichten womöglich gar nicht mehr anzeigen. Und die User werden irgendwann nicht mehr die Wahl haben, ob sie ein solches Plugin wollen.

    Da sollte man hinhören!



    Bisher hat "News Guard" kaum jemand auf dem Schirm, doch hinter der neuen App welche "FakeNews" automatisch erkennen und filtern soll, stecken einige einflussreiche Institutionen und Personen.

    NewsGuard and Microsoft Team Up To Destroy Independent Media Ahead Of 2020 Elections; Linked To Several Think Tanks, Government Officials



    The service NewsGuard, an establishment attempt to silence alternative media and independent media sites, has teamed up with Microsoft to help its effort to destroy free press. Meanwhile, the mysterious firm connected to intelligence agencies and former government officials on their advisory board has also just been linked to Saudi Arabia through Publicis Groupe, an investor in NewsGuard.
    NewsGuard is now automatically included in Microsoft’s Edge browser on iOS, Android and Microsoft phones. Microsoft’s press release regarding the partnership states that NewsGuard “will empower voters by providing them with high-quality information about the integrity and transparency of online news sites.” Just one problem, who is providing transparency about the news rating agency?


    When a user decides to search the Web, the extension tells the user whether or not a story is credible or not credible with 5 indicators and an information box judging the website.

    • Green icon — Sites that follow “basic standards of accuracy and accountability” based on nine criteria,which include full disclosure of possible conflicts of interest, financing, and “notable ideological or political positions held by those with significant financial interests in the site.”
    • Red icon — Sites that do not fulfill NewsGuard’s criteria for credibility and transparency.
    • Orange icon — Satire and humor sites that mimic real news.
    • Blue icon — Sites that primarily host user-generated content.
    • Gray icon —Unrated sites.


    There is just one problem: the plugin is only blacklisting certain sites and does not actually have fact checkers looking into the story in question. So, in fact, the service is censoring alternative and independent media. But, let’s be honest, that’s exactly what its founders, creators, funders, and advisors want.
    About that transparency … the list of advisors for NewsGuard includes Tom Ridge, the former secretary of Homeland Security, Richard Stengel, former editor of Time magazine and Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy (Obama administration), (Ret.) General Michael Hayden, former Director of the CIA, former Director of the National Security Agency and former Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence (George W. Bush administration), Don Baer, chairman of Burson, Cohn & Wolfe and former White House Communications Director (Clinton administration), Elise Jordan, political analyst, NBC, and former speechwriter for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Oh and then there are the journalists (traitors of free speech) like John Battelle, co-founding editor of Wired and founding chief executive of Industry Standard and Jessica Lessin, founder, and editor-in-chief of The Information.


    If you aren’t worried about a company with a former CIA director (who lied under oath to Congress misleading officials, according to the Senate report on the CIA’s interrogation program) and a former secretary of Homeland Security official as its advisors, you may need a reality check. Please go see Dr. Benn Swann for a checkup stat!
    Then there is Richard Stengel, a member of the Atlantic Council (neo-liberal think tank) and former Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy under President Barack Obama who deserves a short blurb for his own involvement. Why? Because Stengel admitted his role in life at a previous discussion hosted last May by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). At the event Stengel described his past position at the State Department as a “chief propagandist” and further stated that he is “not against propaganda” and it was needed. H/T Disobedient Media.
    “Every country does it and they have to do it to their own population and I don’t necessarily think it’s that awful,” Stengel said.


    Investors in NewsGuard — which raised a whopping $6M in funding — include the following people and corporations, according to Finsmes, a website for real-time VC and private equities and news. However, Finsmes appear to have left out a big investing group known as the Publicis Groupe. Publicis Groupe is the third largest global communications company in the world, with more than 80,000 employees in over 100 countries and an annual revenue of over €9.6 billion ($10.98 billion), according to its website.

    Meanwhile, the current CEOs of NewsGuard are Steven Brill and Louis Gordon Crovitz, one of whom has a colorful history; the other is just a journalist. Crovitz is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and he further notes in his bio, available on NewsGuard’s website, that he has been an “editor or contributor to books published by the American Enterprise Institute and Heritage Foundation.”
    Yes, the infamous Heritage Foundation, and the American Enterprise Institute, a neoconservative think tank.
    But it doesn’t end there! In the early 1980s, Crovitz held a number of positions at Dow Jones and at The Wall Street Journal, eventually becoming executive vice president of Dow Jones and the publisher of The Wall Street Journal in 2006-2007.

    Ironically, Crovitz “Mr. I want to fix fake news” has consistently been accused of spreading misinformation into his Wall Street Journal columns, with groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation accusing him of “repeatedly getting his facts wrong” on NSA surveillance. And hilariously he falsely claimed that the Internet was invented entirely privately at Xerox PARC, which was exposed as “fantastically false claims” by the same people he cited for them.
