Introducing NewsQ

While considerable effort is spent on addressing the issue of misinformation, but not enough attention is being devoted to identifying and supporting quality in journalism.

In response, the News Quality (NewsQ) initiative creates data resources for producers of news algorithms and researchers who study them, alongside advertisers seeking to support quality news.

Rather than creating a whitelist, instead these resources identify potential signals of reliable, accurate, and credible journalism in machine-driven information streams. NewsQ is also intended to help foster a cooperative ecosystem around advancements in news quality data and research.
