We combine new technology allowing teams of people to systematically highlight and analyze documents with centuries of knowledge about how humans confuse themselves. We use the output of this process to produce credibility scores you can use to evaluate the news.

With a transparent and non-partisan process, Public Editors aim to serve and engage citizens across the political spectrum.
