The Trust Project
The Trust Project, a consortium of top news companies led by award-winning journalist Sally Lehrman, is developing transparency standards that help you easily assess the quality and credibility of journalism. Our original launch partners include the dpa news agency, The Economist, The Globe and Mail, Hearst Television, the Independent Journal Review, Haymarket Media, Institute for Nonprofit News, Italy’s La Repubblica and La Stampa, Mic, Reach Plc and The Washington Post. Search engines and social media companies are external partners. Our Trust Indicators are based on interviews with real people who told us what they value in news and when they trust it. We’re hosted by Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics in Silicon Valley. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.
