Stand for the truth and against disinformation

Our goal is to limit the spread of disinformation across the internet. We alert advertisers that their advertisements may appear in a negative context and thus jeopardise the reputation of the advertised brand itself. Therefore, we ask advertisers not to fund misinformation and manipulative websites whose content divides society.

Methodology for identifying disinformation
websites

We decided to use three different mechanisms and different approaches to determine harmfulness of a given medium while ranking the websites on our list.
1
Foundation for Independent Journalism (NFNŽ)
2
Konšpirátori.sk (Conspirators)

The Foundation focuses on three characteristics that are considered essential in assessing the credibility of a website: transparency of the medium, fair handling of sources and professional work with the content itself. This methodology assesses how sources and text are handled rather than the level of misinformation. It is a part of the overall picture as the majority of disinformation is based on poor, unprofessional work by the editorial staff which allows such disinformation to spread.

www.nfnz.cz

The credibility of a given website is examined by a committee (writer / political scientist / publicist / artist / doctor / biologist / teacher / historian...) based on their belief in the social usefulness of the medium.

www.konspiratori.sk. We have created an intersection of the sites that overlap in each analysis using these 3 different mechanisms and are, in our opinion, the most toxic and recommended for blocking as part of an ad buy.

Why consider Parlamentní listy a source of disinformation:
Willingness to publish obvious nonsense, manipulative and tendentious
Bending social issues through demonstrably disinformative narratives
Selling of support for politicians acting in symbiosis with the disinformation scene

How not to advertise on a disinformation
site

Together with our supporters, we have prepared a guide on how advertisers can block their ads from appearing on a disinformation website.
