NewsGuard is a browser extension that provides rating labels for online news sources. It rates the credibility of news sites according to their general trustworthiness and whether or not they have a history of running fake news stories. These ratings are created by qualified journalists and based on a publicly available list of criteria.
AllSides aggregates news stories from all around the web and provides media bias ratings for each. Top news stories from outlets rated left-leaning, right-leaning and centrist are displayed side-by-side to give a well-rounded picture of the media's coverage of current events.
Snopes.com covers urban legends, rumors, e-mail forwards, and other stories of unknown or questionable origin. Snopes is created and maintained by a small staff of researchers and writers and receives no funding in any form from any person, group, agency, or organization.
