NewsGuard rates news using a color-coded ranking system, monitored by a 'SWAT team' of analysts to defend against 'disinformation' --'NewsGuard' app gives news sites 'trust' ratings and targets alternative media. What could go wrong? | 15 Jan 2019 | NewsGuard, a new app claiming to help defend against "disinformation" by adding 'trust rankings' to news websites. Color-coded system with (potentially) no escape: NewsGuard rates the news using a color-coded ranking system designed and monitored by a "SWAT team" of analysts who it claims have no "political axes to grind" [except to act at the behest of the Deep State/globalists]...NewsGuard uses "9 criteria" to determine whether a particular site is rated green, yellow or red...Partnering with Microsoft, NewsGuard is trying to have its rankings installed by default in US public school and university libraries, as well as on smartphones and computers. Hawaii is the first US state to have installed NewsGuard on its public library computers...NewsGuard also has a number of "advisors" which might raise eyebrows. Among them are Tom Ridge, a former Secretary of Homeland Security under George W. Bush, former CIA director Michael Hayden and Richard Stengel, a former Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy under Barack Obama and now "distinguished fellow" at the US arms manufacturer-funded Atlantic Council think tank. Stengel admitted that some people described his former post at the State Department as akin to being the "chief propagandist" for the US government.
