Notable Source Additions
Logically – is an IFCN fact-checker based in the United Kingdom. They use a combination of AI and human research in conducting fact checks. MBFC rates them least biased and high factual. They approve them as a go-to fact-checker.
National Catholic Register – is a strongly pro-Catholic conservative website that advocates for Pro-Life policies. This would be fine if they did not promote pseudoscience to advance their agenda. We don’t usually mention our competitors, but the fact that Newsguard gives them a green shield should concern media consumers who rely on them. This is a grossly wrong rating for a poor source that promotes false and misleading information. We are not suggesting Newsguard is biased; we are suggesting their rating system does not tell people what they need to know. This is not correct!
