You are at a library computer and choose to read the news online. You are provided with red or green reliability ratings of news sources when you log into a news site. Your library has installed a NewsGuard plug-in on its browsers. NewsGuard says its analysts are trained journalists who rate news and information sites on credibility and transparency. The NewsGuard website also has a feature where one can submit a news website for review. Should you try out this free browser plug-in? If you do, let us know what you think. Should adult education teachers get this installed on their computers at their school or program? Should they recommend NewsGuard to their students who have computers? Let us know what you think.
