Fake News Checker
Tired of seeing inaccurate or misleading news? Then NewsCracker is perfect for you. When you’re reading a news story on a news organization’s website, just click the NewsCracker icon to receive our accuracy and spin ratings for the article on a scale from 0-10. By checking an article for potential inaccuracy or bias, you can stay away from fake news and remain a savvy, informed news consumer while browsing an internet increasingly dominated by misleading content.
We are always in the process of improving our product. If you disagree with a rating on an article you're viewing, you can "flag" the rating, which will prompt us to look into the rating and see what went wrong. You may also notify us of any bugs or errors that come up, either through the extension or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can continue to improve the user experience.
Please note that our scores are generated by an algorithm, and while we do our best to make sure that they properly reflect the content of each article, they are not absolute indicators of accuracy or inaccuracy, just as they are not absolute indicators of subjectivity or objectivity.
