If there’s anything we learned from the advent of “fake news” and its spread across social media at alarming rates, it’s that most people have abysmal media literacy, and struggle when tasked to separate verified information from hogwash.
We could try to make that decision ourselves, but that’s not something we’re comfortable with. We considered asking outside experts, which would take the decision out of our hands but would likely not solve the objectivity problem. Or we could ask you — the community — and have your feedback determine the ranking.
We decided that having the community determine which sources are broadly trusted would be most objective.
