NewsGuard Rates A Website’s Trustworthiness

How can the average person really discern whether or not something is fake news?

After all, we are living in the world where the news more closely resembles a headline from The Onion or Saturday Night Live than ever before. Enter NewsGuard, an extension you can add to your browser through Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari. It gives ratings to a website’s trustworthiness. Who bestows the ratings? Fact-checking journalists, that’s who.

The Toledo Lucas County Public Library now offers this addition to all their public computers.
