IEEE Standard to Rate the Trustworthiness of News Sites
Can a new IEEE standard help to fight “fake news”?
Reputable news outlets are looking for ways to stem the spread of false and misleading articles. The IEEE Standards Association is trying to help readers detect such content with its new IEEE P7011 Standard for the Process of Identifying and Rating the Trustworthiness of News Sources.
The news outlet will receive a rating in the form of a letter grade, telling readers just how trustworthy the source is. The goal is to inform the consumer as to the quality of the news purveyor, not fact check an article like Snopes, for example.
